APPROACH

Getting to the Root Cause

Functional medicine approach

One way to think of us is as “health detectives.” We focus on identifying and addressing the underlying cause of an illness, rather than just suppressing symptoms.

The science and strength of Functional Medicine in Lithia begins with detailed questionnaires and a thorough medical history and examination. The goal is to gather clues to get a better understanding of why the body has gone into a state of dis-ease.

Like all detectives, we use a variety of cutting-edge diagnostic tools including comprehensive laboratory testing including blood, urine, saliva and stool laboratory panels to objectively measure the body’s internal physiological pathways of tissue repair, immune function, energy production, detoxification, and metabolic signaling.

We then use this data to find the problem, and nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, supplements, stress management, detoxification, lifestyle changes, and—only in some cases when necessary—prescription medications to eliminate triggers and restore proper function and balance to achieve optimal health.

Deep and lasting healing are only possible when the root causes of illness are addressed. By understanding the core systems of the body, how they are related, and how their function can be restored, many chronic illnesses can be prevented and even reversed.

In working with you as a patient, we take a step back and try to see common features that might link all the health conditions that you might be experiencing.
