We want to get you on the road to health - sometimes that means finding what deficiencies you have to fix before you can start to build health - but we are determined to help you find your path.
"We need to shift our focus from treating disease to generating health..." Hippocrates (AMA"The Father of Medicine")
We believe in Functional Medicine. It is defined as: "affecting the operation, rather than the structure, of an organ" In other words, you can address a stomach ulcer by surgery, cutting out the damaged area - affecting the structure - or you can address the function of the stomach so the body is not creating ulcers.
Medicine is: "Medical practice or treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs, usually involving systems of holistic or alternative medicine."
The focus of functional medicine is promoting health beyond just the absence of disease. The focus is finding the cause of the problem and getting the body to fix that. You might need to focus on building healthy nerves when they are painful or addressing heavy metal toxicity when it is raising blood pressure. There are many causes of symptoms. Finding the actual cause and addressing it by building health is functional medicine.
Instead of trying to prevent or stop disease, isn’t it better to start building health. As you build health, you will make changes for the better on a continual basis."

remedies for infections and

“Degenerative diseases – heart attacks, arteriosclerosis,
cancer, stroke, arthritis, hypertension, ulcers, and all the rest
– have replaced infectious diseases as the major enemies of life
and destroyers of its quality.”
