Functional Medicine

herbal therapy

 

Functional medicine looks at the body as a whole and finds the root cause of disease. It removes these underlying causes and restores the natural functioning of the body. Functional medicine looks at the total load of your body and removes each load 1 by 1. Examples of factors that contribute to the total load include: toxic emotions, hormone imbalances, medication interactions, compromised detoxification, mold exposure, food allergies, intestinal pathogens, leaky gut, nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxins and heavy metals, etc.
