What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a patient-centered form of healthcare that is based on a set of principles that identify the body as being designed to function as an interconnected system. The body relies on every system to be performing harmoniously, in order for it to regulate its functions for optimal performance. When one system fails, the entire flow is interrupted causing failures in systems otherwise unaffected. How your body functions is directly influenced by both environmental factors and your genetic makeup. When a system in your body becomes imbalanced, it may lead illness or disease.
Functional Medicine is unlike conventional medicine because it looks at your body as a whole and considers all systems when treating illness and health conditions. Our goal is to identify the underlying, root cause of illness then treating each related system in order to restore harmony, essentially transforming your body to a state of wellness.

Eliminating Dangerous, Visceral Fat
Visceral fat — also known as “dangerous” fat — does more to our bodies than cause our clothes to feel snug. Visceral fat is stored around your organs and contributes to health concerns such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancer, sleep disorders, and even sexual dysfunction. Because visceral fat is store deep below the subcutaneous fat (the fat directly under the skin), even people who appear to be thin may have visceral fat lurking around their vital organs.
Visceral fat is stored and burned differently than subcutaneous fat and therefore needs to dealt with completely differently. Simply cutting calories and increasing exercise like typical weight loss programs recommend, just doesn’t work. Our program looks at balancing your cortisol stress hormones and your sleep patterns. We also look at balancing your sex hormones and prescribing effective exercises to facilitate visceral fat burning. Our body transformation program looks into all of these factors necessary for effective weight loss. The results speak for themselves!
