Our Approach to Functional Medicine

Discovering and Treating the Root Cause

Functional Medicine is a personalized form of health care that places its emphasis on prevention and the discovery of underlying causes rather than merely focusing on symptoms. It is a science-based field of health care that recognizes that the human body functions is an orchestrated network of interconnected systems.

Our examination focuses on core clinical imbalances and a multitude of health factors including:

  • Diet and Nutrition
  • Lifestyle including Exercise, Work and Sleep Patterns
  • Stress Factors
  • Trauma and Injuries
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Neurotransmitter Imbalances
  • Toxicity and Detoxification Pathways
  • Immune Dysfunction
  • Inflammatory Conditions and their Causes
  • Digestive, Absorptive and Microbiological Imbalances
  • Structural Imbalances

To accomplish this, we utilize:

  • A wide palette of cutting edge Laboratory Testing
  • A deep exploration of Patient History
  • Physical Examination including standard Western Examination including Blood Pressure and Heart Rate, Palpation and Observation
  • Chinese Pulse Diagnosis
  • Auricular Diagnosis (Anatomical Ear Examination)
  • Abdominal Palpation
  • Structural Examination including Postural Evaluation

A whole spectrum of other factors can be at the root of our health conditions and must be considered.

These factors (to list only a few) include:

  • Chemical and Heavy Metal Toxicities
  • Unresolved or Chronic Viruses, Bacteria, Fungi and Mold
  • Parasites and Chronic Amoebiasis
  • Gluten Sensitivity
  • Hidden Food Allergies
  • Cranial Misalignments
  • Unresolved Dental Issues
  • Scar Tissue Disturbances
  • Unresolved Psychological Influences

To evaluate these factors properly, we utilize various “non-traditional” diagnostic methods, in addition to Western methods of evaluation. These methods are detailed in other Articles on our site. Please read the articles on Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Structural Therapeutics, Fixing Cranial Misalignments and Muscle Response Testing for more information.

At Healing Partnership, we use both cutting-edge traditional diagnostics and energetic approaches to develop customized treatment plans for each and every patient. We have found this integrative approach to be both highly successful and cost-effective. We are able to identify, at a core level, the real causes of autonomic dysregulation and produce the results we have always felt were possible, for our patients.
