What is Functional Integrative Medicine?

Functional Integrative Medicine, or “Functional Medicine” serves as a bridge between conventional, allopathic Medicine, and alternative healthcare.  We take an “integrative” approach to your healthcare by utilizing science-based investigation tools such as comprehensive clinical lab testing in order to determine the actual biochemical cause of a patients’ problem; we then use natural and alternative means help stabilize and correct it.

Not to be confused with the practice of conventional “Medicine” as defined by Texas Law; Chiropractic-based Functional Medicine does not seek to diagnose or treat any diseases or medical conditions, other than those of the human musculoskeletal system…only a licensed Medical or Osteopathic Doctor is allowed to do that in Texas.  What Functional Medicine does hope to accomplish, is to investigate and determine the etiology of any structural or functional pathology or other abnormality of the biomechanical system; stabilize and correct any aberrant pathology or abnormality, and manage the state of the underlying biochemical physiology, without the use of incisive procedures or drug therapy.

Regardless of the system, organ, or tissue, the entire human is ultimately broken down into biochemical reactions and processes on a cellular level. By detecting, correcting, and removing interference, and maintaining proper biochemistry on such a deep level, the entirety of the human physiological condition including the system of muscles and tendons and ligaments and bones and joints and associated tissues and nerves that move the body and maintain its form may be managed, and improved with much success utilizing advanced nutritional concepts such as homeopathic and botanical medicines, dietary & lifestyle modification, Chiropractic Manipulation, and complementary therapies such as Acupuncture. In this regard, we may render an opinion on the overall state of a patients’ health, and provide appropriate care options. Referrals to other qualified healthcare professionals are made whenever necessary.
