Functional Medicine

Thorough system evaluation to assess how we can best help your body heal itself. We are taught that there is a pill to fix everything, but what that pill is doing is covering up a symptom of something else that is broken. By fixing what is broken, the body will heal itself.

Thorough lab analysis, food allergy testing and gut microbiome.

Many times we miss things in normal labs that can be discovered through a more thorough approach. While food is an integral part of your body's function, it can also be one of the biggest allergy triggers that can cause other problems down the line. Through proper testing, we can help you figure out what foods are best for you. The gut is where the majority of your immune system lies, by thorough analysis of what is going on in the gut, you will be able to make appropriate changes to your diet and lifestyle to maximize your health.

Acute Pain Management and Prolotherapy

There are times when the body needs a little push to get it back in shape. After an acute injury or accident, you may need some pain management to get you through that acute phase and moving again. That is where acute pain management comes in. Prolotherapy is another tool to help move you along in your healing process.
