Customized Comprehensive & Natural Approach

What are functional medicine lab ranges and how are they different from conventional medical lab ranges?

When traditional medical doctors analyze blood work they use what are called disease parameters (what all the sick people in my geographical area are like). Therefore these pathological lab ranges are different from north to south or east to west. Functional ranges are smaller and used to access risk for disease before the disease develops. This way there is a chance of reversing the imbalance before it becomes disease. Conventional medical care is set up for when a disease has already manifested itself. Also, if lab values are not quite pathological yet, they are considered normal even if you feel bad.

By using these functional lab values, it is easier keeping patients well as opposed to having to work back through a disease state. Plus, it is easier to reverse. Some pathological conditions cannot be reversed but then must managed.

In repairing your body we strive to use natural means such as: dietary and nutritional lifestyle changes, supplements, acupuncture, chiropractic and therapeutic massage.
