Functional medicine, an overall system approach to dis-ease, looks for the root of a problem by evaluating nutrition and environmental exposure to toxins and utilizing appropriate functional laboratory assessments. Metametrix Clinical Laboratory is one of the best in the field and is conveniently located in Atlanta for my patients.

Functional medicine practitioners center individualized care around the patient to deliver integrative, researched-based healthcare management. Read more here.

Functional assessment may help with a number of dis-ease processes, such as:

  • Inflammation
    • Systemic – in the whole body, not only one organ system
  • Autoimmune diseases
    • i.e. Celiac/Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid ar
      thritis, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, Graves’/Addison’s/thyroid disease, Type-1 diabetes, lupus, endometriosis, and many, many more
  • Food sensitivities
    • IgE – immediate reaction, sometimes anaphylactic
    • IgG – delayed reaction, up to 4 days
  • Chronic diseases
    • i.e. diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease, and many more

Functional medicine compliments the holistic approach of chiropractic profoundly and allows for the optimal balance of the whole body toward health and wellness.
