Our holistic, functional medicine approach looks at you as a whole being,
not as a "disease."
Rather than merely controlling symptoms, functional medicine asks the question “why?” Why are you having these symptoms? What other issues are related? What is your health history?
Functional medicine is an entirely science-based branch of medicine with countless peer-reviewed articles published in the best known medical journals. The main difference between the traditional medical model and functional medicine is the angle of approach. We believe that by providing the body with necessary nutrients, and removing certain offending foods, we can arm the body to do what it most needs to do – heal itself.

Food that has been minimally processed will provide the most nutrition for you. Learn more (recipes, anyone?) from our health coaches in the Lifestyle Therapy program.
