Functional medicine refers to the idea that if the various organ systems are performing and interacting with each other properly then you have a healthy, vigorously functioning mind and body. However, if any one system is overburdened and unable to maintain its regulatory action (homeostasis) within the body, then every other system becomes affected in an attempt to compensate.
Physical symptoms and pathology are a result of eventual decompensation in the organ systems. This is the basis for statements like “treat the whole body” and “treat the cause”. This also explains the concept of “preventive” medicine. Through a process of rational and systematic treatment of the effected organ systems, not only do the current symptoms go away but further dis-ease is prevented.
For over three decades I have utilized the science of testing a man or woman’s hormones in order to study the delicate balance of each individuals glandular system. What I have learned is that the entire glandular system is responsible for a smooth transition into menopause. The interplay of the thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, pituitary and hypothalamus is examined in all my patients complaining of hormone issues.
I prescribe bioidentical hormones to correct the initial imbalance. However, after fortifying the rest of the glandular system, focusing on nutritional and lifestyle issues, and utilizing the many therapies that stimulate bodies ability to heal itself, often my patients are weaned off their exogenous (from outside the body) hormones.

Thanks for reviewing our information about high power laser treatment for natural, holistic pain relief.
Chronic pain is one of the most prevalent, debilitating conditions in the world, a effecting 100 million adults in the US, according to the Institute of Medicine, costing the nation up to $635 billion each year in medical treatment and lost productivity. Unfortunately, the primary treatment options for chronic pain are surgery or heavy (and addictive) medications. Fortunately, there is now another option—natural pain relief that also promotes healing. What is this miracle treatment? It’s K-Laser, Class IV laser therapy that uses red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect at a cellular level.

In 1916, Einstein suggested that lasers could provide benefits to the human body. He was right. In 1967, lasers were first used in medicine, with good success. Laser treatment was approved in Europe in the 1970s and in the US in 2002. Now, K-Laser is the preferred choice for thousands of practitioners worldwide. High power laser therapy can stimulate all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc., so a number of conditions can be treated by high power laser therapy.
Some of conditions that may typically be treated by high power laser therapy include:
• Peripheral Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia
• Back and Neck Pain
• Sciatic Pain
• Arthritis pain, Degenerative Discs/Joints
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Knee Problems
• Tendinitis, Trigger Fingers
• Bunion Pains, Plantar Fasciitis
• Sprains and/or Strains
• Athletic Injuries
• Bruises, Contusions
• Headaches, TMJ, Sinus Trouble

I also work extensively with food allergy identification and elimination. Food allergies can cause obvious problems or they can be much more subtle. If you have a health issue (asthma, eczema, migraines, A.D.D./A.D.H.D.), food allergies will almost always worsen the overlying condition by increasing inflammation, preventing the natural healing response.
Allergy testing is generally done via elimination and challenge diets or through a laboratory generated blood test known as an ELISA panel.

Mineral, Vitamin and Nutraceutical Supplements
Mineral and vitamin supplements are used widely in our practice. For people who are relatively healthy and just want to stay that way, we can make general recommendations for vitamins and dosage. Then there are those people who may have specific health issues, for which we may prescribe a therapeutic, high dose, usage of particular substances.
Minerals and vitamins when depleted, contribute to the development of illness. This can occur due to poor diet or poor absorption, or they may become deficient as a consequence of the disease process itself (heavy metal toxicity, cancer, infection, etc.), contributing to an exacerbation of the illness. Genetics plays a role in a persons ability to synthesize and utilize certain nutrients. An example is the inability to use folic acid for

Trained in Classical Homeopathy with some of the world’s best prescribers, I have discovered that when we find the right remedy a case can completely transform. Matching something in nature to assist the body to finish its healing process is a skill and an art, and one that I enjoy tremendously.
Because homeopathic remedies use such small amounts of naturally occurring elements, homeopathy is a very safe, non-toxic form of treatment that is especially well suited to the treatment of children and anyone in a debilitated condition.
As a physician, I will frequently incorporate homeopathic medicines as part of treatment, recognizing that any curative process involves some form of energetic intervention.
