Why Functional Medicine?

 

A Better Future For Our Patients & Community

 

Chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure, and Alzheimer's disease, are the leading causes of death. As the number of patients with chronic diseases is increasing, we are beginning to understand the flaws of our current healthcare system. Together we can take the steps towards a brighter future and change how medicine is being practiced.

 

Understand The Root Cause

 

Mainstream medicine often uses drugs and surgery to treat symptoms and conditions. While many of these methods are important, it doesn't always effectively eliminate the causes of chronic diseases. In the Functional Medicine approach, we look at the root causes of conditions and dive deep into a patient's history, diet, and lifestyle and use advanced lab testing to better understand and address what initiated or is aggravating their chronic conditions, instead of masking it with drugs.

"Just the way that my brain thinks about different conditions has really been shaped by my training in functional medicine."

David Musnick

MD

"Functional Medicine can be applied to almost every branch of medicine, including neurology and brain issues. So I just think if someone wants to be more satisfied with what they're doing in any branch of healing, in health, in anything. Functional medicine will improve their knowledge of nutrition, improve their knowledge of the interrelationships between the lifestyle factors like sleep, nutrition, and stress with other factors like hormones and inflammation. It's a way to frame a case, it's a way to ask the right questions. There's always lots of resources that are available. "

Liz Lipski

"How most people learn medicine, it's about kind of acute care but when we're working with chronic care, people just keep taking the medications and they don't actually make them better underneath...  I think that adding any new modality always gives you a new lens to look through and I think the functional medicine lens is what role does nutrition and lifestyle really play? Are there underlying stealth infections? Could there be toxicities that nobody's looked for? Could there be nutrient imbalances?"

Heather Zwickey

PhD

"Inflammation is playing a role in almost every chronic disease that's out there. If you don't control the inflammation you never get at the cause. If you're a neurologist you think of Parkinson's disease as a lack of dopamine and the death of the substantia nigra in the brain. But what's causing the damage is the neuro-inflammation... If we don't address the underlying inflammation we never treat the cause and people continue down the disease pathway. Functional medicine gives you the tools to look at the root cause."

Jessica Knese

MS, CNS

"It's very effective being able to check their hormones, check their adrenal glands, check their blood sugar or environmental toxins, heavy metals, and really get to the root cause of what's causing their concern and using nutrition and supplements and tailor an approach to them specifically."
