1306 Mercantile Dr., Highland IL
An approach to medicine that aims to finding and treating the cause of
disease and dysfunction,
turning illness into wellness.
We have several options for your visit: in office, in the comfort of your home, telehealth and by phone.
So much of today's medicine has become about treating symptoms. This method does not "fix" the problem, it is a bandaid, and has the potential to worsen issues long term. We work to investigate the cause of problems and disease and then address the cause. We do not just cover up the symptoms with prescriptions. We are passionate about health, wellness and disease prevention keeping in mind that every person's situation and body are unique and therefore requires a unique and personalized approach.
Patients come to me after experiencing years, sometimes decades, of debilitating symptoms stemming from chronic disease, autoimmune disorders, leaky gut, chronic fatigue, adrenal burnout, etc. They have been to many conventional providers and have not gotten the answers they need and deserve.
We provide patients with a personalized treatment plan and on-going support to maximize their success in reversing their issues and improving quality of life.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease and inter-connectedness within the body. It views the body and all of the systems as a whole, with all parts working and communicating with each other.
It is a science-based approach where the provider considers a number of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, lifestyle, genetics, mind, and environment that can contribute to illness. Data is obtained through the use of patient history, medical records and laboratory testing and other diagnostic procedures.
A comprehensive plan is then prescribed for the individual patient which may include nutrition, , medications, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, stress-management techniques, and emotional support. Please let us know if you would prefer to be seen in your home.
