"I treat my patients as if they are a part of my own family, giving them respect and helping them make informed health care decisions."Jill Konfrst
We are all different and genetically and biochemically unique and have to be treated as such.
Everything in our body is inter-connected. Understanding this allows us to see deep into the functioning of the body.
Your body has the capacity for self-regulation, expressing itself through a dynamic balance of your body systems.
We have the capacity to enhance and optimize our organ reserve and prevent nearly all the disease of aging.
Functional medicine treats the person who has the disease, not the disease that the person has.
It uses the latest scientific understanding about how our genetics, environment, and lifestyle interact as a whole system to diagnose and treat diseases based on patterns of imbalance and dysfunction.
Functional medicine is deeply science-based. It has emerged from new discoveries in what we call systems biology — the understanding of the deep interconnections of the basic systems of the body. Systems biology is so important that it’s a key part of the agenda of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and their New Roadmap Initiative.
