We take Functional Medicine into the 21st Century
Functional Medicine takes a distinctly different approach to complex health conditions. As stated by the Institute for Functional Medicine:

“Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.”

Functional medicine, however, can be a challenging discipline to pursue. The process of sorting out underlying root causes can be extremely complex and take an exceedingly long time.

In functional medicine, these basic principles are followed:
  • All symptoms and health issues have underlying causes.
  • The better we understand those underlying causes, the better we can improve, reverse, cure and/or prevent those symptoms and health issues.
  • The cells, tissues and systems of the body are interconnected.
  • The optimal way to manage health is from a thorough understanding of these interconnected systems with a holistic frame of reference that can be in opposition to the fragmented, hyperspecialized mainstream medical world.
Evolution of Medicine

  • Goal is to diagnose an illness

  • Treats the symptoms of the illness

  • Patient is treated for the chronic illness for life; treatment never ends

  • Expensive, time consuming and often uncertain


  • Goal is to identify the root causes to reverse or cure the condition

  • Treats the underlying root causes

  • Treating the root causes can end the symptoms and treatment

  • Identifying root causes and ordering tests from outside labs can be costly and inefficient
(Functional Med + Artificial Intelligence)
  • Makes root cause identification efficient and more accurate

  • Ensures that the most likely root causes are being treated

  • Monitors patient's progress; confirms improvement in patient's overall health

  • Employs technology to make the process more practical, convenient and affordable
