Integrative Functional Medicine Center
The Integrative Functional Medical Center is our healthcare practice, an integral part of Five Stones Healing Arts and Wellness Center. Located in Leesburg, we serve Northern Virginia and the greater Washington DC metro area.
As an integrative functional medicine practice, we provide our patients the widest array of safe and proven therapeutic options that extend our ability to diagnose and to treat ailments, ill health and disease, and to improve a patient's basic health. We provide all the best available clinical services, including health screenings, labs and referrals.
As an integrative functional medicine practice, our focus is on identifying the underlying root causes of health problems which we believe helps our patients achieve the balance that ultimately leads to true health and wellness – a balance in mind, body and spirit. We address the interactions among a variety of factors — lifestyle, genetic, environmental and physiological — that influence long-term health and can give rise to complex, chronic disease.
Our practitioners, board certified in family medicine, integrative and holistic medicine, and trained in functional medicine, can recommend botanical medicines, nutritional supplements, pharmaceutical drugs, nutrition and detoxification programs, therapeutic bodywork, energy healing and other mind-body therapies to assist and strengthen the body's inherent healing processes.
Our patients consult with us to address a wide array of symptoms and conditions:
- They may be looking for a specific alternative therapy, such as bio-identical hormones, herbs, nutritional counseling and more.
- They may want guidance on achieving and maintaining health and wellness.
- They may have a chronic, complex condition and are looking for a broader view and understanding of that process.
- They may be seeking a relationship with a healthcare provider who sees the larger picture and understands them as people.
In addition to routine healthcare, we work with patients with conditions or concerns in the following areas:
- Women’s health
- Men’s health
- Children’s health
- Stress management
- Healthy weight-loss
- Healthy aging
- Cancer recovery

The integrative and functional philosophy on which we base our healthcare practice is also embedded within our health transformation programs such as the Circle of Wellness provided through our sister organization, Five Stones Institute.
The Functional Medicine Tree is an explanatory tool that helps clinicians communicate with other clinicians, as well as patients, about the key differences between Functional Medicine and conventional medicine. The leaves and branches represent symptoms and diseases, which conventional medicine focuses on to arrive at a named diagnosis, with each specialty isolated on its own branch. Functional Medicine instead focuses on the foundations of the tree, which represent the foundations of health, to understand the true “root” causes of dysfunction.
