My Mission Is to Provide a Professional & Honest Approach to Health Care
In this traditional medicine setting, I was a trusted advocate for innovative thinking and quality care. However, I slowly evolved my philosophy towards a more holistic functional medicine approach. I realized that traditional treatments were valuable, but did not really get to the root cause of conditions.
The Future Has Arrived
The landscape of healthcare is undergoing dramatic change due to the need and demand for addressing chronic conditions associated with lifestyle factors.
In the past, a healthy person was defined as someone free from disease or illness. This would make sense when the leading cause of death was an infectious disease caused by bacteria and viruses. However, as medicine advanced, contagious diseases have been mostly eradicated, and now we also define health based on lifestyle habits.
From the foods we choose to eat to the habits we keep, our everyday choices dramatically affect the way our bodies work and respond to distress. Functional medicine goes beyond the symptom treatment model of conventional medicine and systemically examines the body and lifestyle factors when addressing illness. This is why it’s been coined, “the medicine of the future.”

Every 20 minutes another child in the US is diagnosed with autism. It is estimated that 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder, an increase from 1 in 88 over just a two year period, while some sources report numbers even higher than these.
While these numbers are staggering, they do little to reflect how these disorders affect families.
Supporting autistic children typically involves a multi-faceted, complex treatment program. For many families and providers alike, the missing piece has been genetic testing. Through identification and treatment of genetic defects these children may greatly improve their symptoms and overall quality of life.

• Understand the higher occurrence of MTHFR in symptomatic patients
• Understand the mechanism of action of how MTHFR affects the pathogenesis of autism and ADHD

Functional medicine is ideal for helping individuals with ASD as the body is viewed as one integrated system rather than a collection of independent organs. By understanding and treating the body as a whole, functional medicine can help various ranges of abnormalities such as gut imbalances and detoxification issues common in individuals with autism. (Such anomalies often cause the behavioral and mood symptoms of autism.)
We are driven to share the many holistic techniques and benefits functional medicine has to offer as the integrated approach of functional medicine looks at diet, exercise, detoxification, and supplementation as means to reducing symptoms of autism.
There is no reason you or your family should endure any additional stress. We understand autism comes with enough complications and trying times, and now settling for mediocrity does not have to be your future.
Health Concerns Addressed
Since the scope of functional medicine is broad, we address a wide variety of health concerns.
Some of the most common include:
- Brain Health
