What We Do

Functional Medicine

What is Functional Medicine? 

"Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership." "By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual."

Much of Functional Medicine involves using lab tests to discern organic function, followed by recommendation in environmental management, lifestyle, including stress management, exercise, rest, diet, use of herbal medicine, and nutritional supplementation.

Robert Murdoch, A.P. has been practicing Functional Medicine since 1992. He has used Functional Medicine to help patients of all ages with Autoimmune disorders such as Crohn's disease, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, as well as cancer, hepatitis, asthma, and many others. He is also an expert in detoxification. Check out his books:

Neurolinguistic Programming

A system of using sensory cues to optimize and reeducate our experience of life and events, as well as our behaviors and performance. We'll often use this in coaching for lifestyle changes.
 

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is was founded in the early 1800's by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. He recognized that instead of large doses of natural substances, very small doses still had an effect.

Homeopathy is the second largest therapeutic system in the world.

Remedies are extracted, made into a liquid, then mixed with a delivery medium such as little sublingual tablets, skin ointments, gels, drops, injectable liquid or creams.

Homeopathic remedies are easy to take, enjoyed by children, and extremely safe.

We usually use homeopathy for acute applications: coughs, runny nose, diarrhea, excessively high fevers, rashes, insomnia, fear, irritability, and for many other problems.

We often prescribe homeopathic remedies for chronic problems too.
