According to the Institute for Functional Medicine, it is “personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease.”

Functional Medicine looks at the body as an inter-connected whole, rather than the aggregate of various systems. Instead seeing each patient as a collection of diseases or complaints, it seeks to restore the “whole patient” to their natural state: optimal health and performance.

You don’t need to be sick to benefit from Functional Medicine. The preventive aspect of this method not only can help you avoid sickness and disease, but may also help you get to that next level of health and performance.

At Holistic Specialists, we develop your treatment plan in 4 stages:


1. Identify

We identify the root cause of the problem through a physical examination, reviewing your health history and prescribing the appropriate blood analysis and
functional medicine tests.


2. Evaluate

We evaluate the core imbalances that lead to disease and loss of performance. Whether they come from dysfunctions in the digestive, hormonal, detoxification, immune, or intestinal barrier systems, these imbalances are addressed through the interpretation of advanced laboratory analysis which look at function, not disease.


3. Restore

We restore the body’s systems to normal function, allowing our patients to be on the road to vibrant health and vitality.


4. Heal

Addressing the body’s imbalances and adopting lifestyle changes such as sleep, exercise, medicinal/sports supplements and proper nutrition based on the patient individual needs and test results, the body is put in the optimal position to heal.
