What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is devoted to discovering the underlying causes of chronic medical conditions.

Viewing your body as an integrated system, functional medicine uses a systems-oriented approach to a patient-centered care.

Some of the tools we use very effectively not used by conventional medicine are: Hormone Replacement Therapy, Thyroid Optimization, TAAT-tageted amino acid therapy, I.V. infusions of Vitamins, Minerals, I.V. Ketamine, Chelation Therapy, PRP-platelet Rich Plasma, Vampire Facelift, Botox for aesthetics and headache syndromes, Trigger Point Injections, HCG diet, along with the most effective traditional modalities.

How is Functional Medicine Different from Conventional Medicine?

Unlike conventional medicine, Functional Medicine addresses the patient as a whole - not as an isolated set of systems and symptoms. Imagine combining the above mentioned treatment modalities with some of the effective tradional therapies that have helped you to some degree but feel you could and should feel better.

Functional Medicine looks at both external (environmental) and internal (lifestyle) factors to determine the best course of patient care. And you get the benefit of 2 experts, Tim and Kim Blend, providing a comprehensive approach to your individualized care.
