What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine uses detailed history-taking and advanced laboratory testing to asses root causes. It employs the wisdom of natural healing and therapies other than drugs or surgery. As a result, we are able to restore balance in the human body’s physiological processes. Functional medicine focuses on the individual’s underlying imbalances or dysfunctions to reestablish health. This is in contrast to addressing symptoms as isolated diseases.

As a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Dr. Amy provides hope to her patients. These are people who have often already seen several other practitioners. At The Healing Place, patients receive a fresh view and gain answers to questions about their symptoms. The service centers on the individual and health is viewed as more than the absence of disease.


Why Do We Need Functional Medicine?

The Acute-Care Approach
The conventional (Western) medical model uses an approach oriented toward acute care. An example of when this approach is appropriate is in the diagnosis and treatment of appendicitis or a heart attack with a particular set of drugs or surgery.
Acute-Care Approach in Chronic Illness
We are experiencing a rapid increase in the occurrence of chronic, complex diseases. For example, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and dementia are at all time highs. This is also true for autoimmune diseases such Hashimoto’s, Celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis. The acute-care approach fails when dealing with these chronic, complex illnesses. This is because it does not take into account an individual’s lifestyle, diet, or exposure to toxins, which are often at the root of these conditions. Furthermore, most practitioners in the acute-care model are not adequately equipped to assess the underlying imbalances of these chronic conditions. Unfortunately, neither are they able to apply the appropriate nutritional, supplementation, and lifestyle guidelines to prevent or reverse these illnesses in their patients.


A better quality of life can be your reality, too.

Young Again

As a 52 year old, I struggled with symptoms like migraines, ear ringing, and hand numbness. I used to drop my alarm clock, coffee cup, lunch bag, and other things. Dr. Amy advised me on a new way of eating, educated me on food and inflammation, and motivated me with her passion for healthy living. I weighed 125 lbs and felt like I ate pretty well. I was wrong! Not only did I make the changes, which made my symptoms go away, my eyes have are open to a whole new way of life. I am now 52 years young!

Not Another Pill

For years, I felt depressed, exhausted, constipated, inflamed, and irritable. I experienced skin problems, joint pain, brain fog, weight gain, and visual problems. The exhaustion set in and I was ready to give up as no doctor I saw could help. I went to so many different doctors with varying specialties. They said maybe it’s this, maybe it’s that and wanted me to take another pill. Finally after following a personalized program, I’m already feeling better by the 3rd week and I’m on the road to recovery.

Healthy Living Success

After unsuccessfully trying many different diets, I began working with Dr. Amy. The customized plan didn’t feel restricting like other diets have. She has great compassion and was able to motivate me because she cared, created a non-judgmental setting, and met me where I was. I received the latest information and was able to apply the tools to evolve into a healthier person. I’ve been empowered to succeed in a healthy lifestyle and I have never felt better!
