Dr. Justin practices a new model of medicine, sometimes referred to as “functional” or “systems” medicine. Functional medicine is neither conventional nor alternative medicine. It’s a combination of the best elements of both, and it represents the future of medicine. That’s why I call it “medicine for the 21st century.”
Functional Medicine Is…
Investigative: It treats symptoms by addressing underlying cause of the problem, which leads to more profound and longer lasting results.
Holistic: Treats the body as an interconnected whole, and recognizes the importance of these connections in health and disease.
Safe: Treatments have mild or no side effects, and other unrelated complaints often improve spontaneously.
Patient-centered: Treats the patient, not the disease. Treatments are highly individualized based on patient needs.
Participatory: Patient is respected, empowered, educated and encouraged to play active role in healing process.
Integrative: Combines the best of both modern and traditional medicines and emphasizes importance of diet and lifestyle.
Restorative: Tests and treatments designed to promote optimal function, prevent and reverse disease, and improve quality of life.
Preventative: Guided by the ancient Chinese saying, “The superb physician treats disease before it occurs.”
Evidence-based: Based on the latest research from peer-reviewed medical journals, and uncorrupted by corporate and political interests.
Natural Support: Dr. Justin helps nutritionally support many conditions including hypothyroidism, female hormone issues, and digestive issues. Dr. Justin does not treat any diseases directly. Please consult your medical doctor for this type of support.
