What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors in order to create a personalized treatment plan that leads to improved patient outcomes.
By focusing on the cause, rather than any symptoms, providers become oriented to identifying the complexity of the disease. Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
What can Functional Medicine do for you?
Functional Medicine can help treat and potentially minimize your chronic health issues, such as obesity, diabetes, aches and pains, and many other health issues. For more information, schedule a phone consultation today!
Contour Light Therapy
The Contour Light system uses LED and near-infrared light in proven clinical therapeutic wavelengths of 635nm and 880nm. This increases ATP production (cellular energy) within the mitochondria (a powerhouse of energy) in our cells. This allows the mitochondria to carry out their purpose of cleaning, detoxifying, and energizing cells from start to natural finish.
Red Light Therapy Benefits:
Asking for help can be tough. You may feel as though you’ll be seen as weak or needy. It can also be hard to give up control when seeking help. Challenging yourself to become the best possible YOU is one of the strongest, most courageous things you can do.
