What is Functional Medicine?

 

Recognizing that the human body must be treated as a group of integrated physiological systems, Dr. Bemis incorporated the practice of Functional Medicine with his chiropractic services in 2006.  Functional medicine recognizes that each body part and system plays a role in maintaining health.  Functional medicine not only offers patients a "big picture" look at how and why they have health problems, but also provides an action plan for treating those health problems in an effort to restore optimal health. Dr. Bemis utilizes tests that evaluate the following components of human physiology -

 

Adrenal function
Blood sugar levels
Fatty acid metabolism
Food sensitivities
Gastrointestinal function
Hormone levels
Liver function
Metabolism
Structural alterations
Thyroid function
