Functional Medicine

Chronic degenerative disease is responsible for 80% of the cost of “healthcare” today and the World Health Organization estimates that the great majority is rooted in dysfunctional lifestyles.

Functional Medicine asks how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the actual causes of disease. By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions.

Using the same shovel that we used to dig our way to dysfunction and dis-ease, Functional Medicine helps us to dig our way out. Some conditions recover and heal faster or slower than others, but if we ensure good nutrition, proper vitamin and mineral levels, avoid toxic exposures, handle stress constructively, sleep well, and have a strong purpose to life in terms of God and family, we can restore normal function and health to our lives.

Attend Dr K’s Functional Nutrition class and learn to LIVE your way out of disease usually without drugs or surgery. Class is one of the first steps, after which you meet with Dr K in the office and tailor a plan specific to your life and dysfunctions.
