Functional Medicine

Has the following attributes… Certification in the Practice of Functional Medicine

Dr. Justin practices a new model of natural healthcare, sometimes referred to as “Functional” or “Systems” medicine. Functional medicine is not what you know as conventional or allopathic medicine. Functional medicine offers a holistic approach where the underlying physical, chemical and emotional stressors are supported to help the body reduce inflammation so the body can start to heal itself.

Functional medicine does not involve treating diseases or prescribing medications; rather we utilize homeopathic and botanical medicines, including vitamin supplements, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, nutraceuticals and glandular extracts, as well as diet modification and weight control to address the root cause of poor health and to support our patient’s overall wellness.

Investigative: It treats the underlying cause of the problem, which leads to more profound and longer lasting results instead of treating disease.

Holistic: Treats the body as an interconnected whole, and recognizes the importance of these connections in health and disease.

Safe: Programs have very little side effects, and other unrelated complaints often improve spontaneously as inflammation improves.

Patient-centered: We support the patient, not the disease. Programs are highly individualized based on patient needs.

Participatory: The patient is respected, empowered, educated and encouraged to play an active role in the healing process.

Integrative: Combines the best of both natural and holistic healthcare and emphasizes the importance of diet and lifestyle.

Restorative: To promote optimal function, with the goal of promoting wellness.

Preventative: The old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Our goal is to support underlying stressors before issues ever occur.

Evidence-based: Based on the latest research from peer-reviewed medical journals, and uncorrupted by corporate and political interests.

Natural Support: Dr. Justin helps naturally support many conditions including hypothyroidism, female hormone issues, and digestive issues through diet, lifestyle modifications, supplementation, and nutritional support. Dr. Justin does not treat any diseases directly, he supports physical, chemical and emotional stressors with the goal of promoting wellness. Please consult your medical doctor if you are looking for specific disease treatment.
