Why Choose Functional Integrative Medicine?
Functional Medicine is the medicine of “why” and of trying to understand the root cause of your symptoms, illness or condition. Looking at the vast number of possible factors impacting your health health, including your genetics, environment, nutritional status, stress, toxins, and your personal belief systems, our functional medicine practitioners assesses the core imbalances that need to be rebalanced to help you reclaim optimal health.
