The human body is a finely tuned integrated system. As with any system if one part breaks down there are many ramifications down the line. If your car (another system) doesn't start a mechanic will test the possibilities until they find (mal)-function and repair it. In functional medicine we identify the how and why illness occurs and develop a treatment plan by addressing root cause, rather than symptoms approach.
Functional medicine targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been practiced for thousands of years and in many was is the most sophisticated medicine in history. It is the original functional medicine model.
TCM is a complete medical system of energetics that has been used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness. It is centered around acupuncture, cupping, herbal medicine, tu ina, qi gong, nutrition, meditation, and lifestyle. The treatments in TCM encompass balance within both the body and the environment around the body.
Acupuncture is a modality that falls under the umbrella of Chinese Medicine. People often ask, how does acupuncture work, what does it do? Chinese Medicine would say, fundamentally acupuncture regulates Qi. What does this mean? As we know the brain controls everything in the body. It is the CEO of the body. These communication pathways are facilitated by a large assessment of messenger molecules. The needling of specific acupuncture points activates these molecules to facilitate the proper change that is needed. Studies have been done that show different brain regions that are activated by specific acupuncture points. This is an important insight as it supports the ancient Chinese model of regulation of the bodies systems.
What is it, and why does it matter?
Functional nutrition is about finding the right way for each of us to eat. Using food to maximize the potential for health and revers dysfunction of disease. There is no single "right diet" that applies to everyone. We have different genetic backgrounds, different preferences, and different lives. We all want to be healthy, but many of us haven't figured out exactly how to make food and dietary patterns serve that goal. Functional nutrition offers the concepts, strategies and tools to make that happen

Millions of people suffer from chronic skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Excema, Sebborhea, Acne, and others. Conventional Dermatology seeks to relieve the patient of the symptomatology such as itching, redness, as well as changes in skin texture and appearance. The more recent introduction of Biologic medications has brought more continuous relief but often at a cost of a compromised immune system.
