Integrative Functional Medicine
Is a holistic approach to health care which supports the unique expression of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of an individual by addressing the underlying causes of disease. Rather than treating the symptoms of disease, together, you and the doctor examine the underlying processes leading to the development of the "dis-ease." This includes reviewing your life history, your diet, your various environmental influences, your relationships, how you work, relax, play, and sleep. Functional Medicine explores how well your organs and systems are functioning and to what toxins they have been exposed. Functional Medicine emphasizes prevention by assessing risk factors, heredity, and susceptibility to disease, and taking appropriate interventions prior to onset of a disease condition. It is this unique painting of your life story that creates the full picture of your total health which allows Functional Medicine to treat the whole person.
Is a philosophy, an art, and a science. The philosophical foundation is the belief that there is a universal intelligence in all living matter which strives to maintain health. When a subluxation, or dislocation, occurs in the vertebrae, not only can there be pain and discomfort, but it also signifies that there is a blockage of the lifeforce within which would naturally return the body to health and wholeness. The art and science are in the actual treatment, the correction of the subluxation so that the lifeforce within can return to a full expression of health and wellness.
Nutritional Intravenous Therapies, providing micronutrients by intravenous (IV) routes is an effective way of improving essential vitamin and mineral deficits in the body. IV administration offers direct delivery to the bloodstream and bypasses the digestive system and any obstacles that can hinder absorption into the tissues and cells. This allows the body to receive 100% of the nutrients. Micronutrients include vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and amino acids all of which serve major roles in the body’s metabolism, cognitive function, and antioxidant properties. When given in certain amounts intravenously the nutritional components have a much more powerful and rapid effect than can’t be achieved orally.
