Getting to the Roots


Think of your body as a tree. Your symptoms are the leaves, in plain sight above ground. And it’s easy to name your condition — even if we don’t know what causes it.

But there’s a connected system of roots beneath the surface. Functional and integrative medicine is about treating the underlying issues. It’s about helping you truly identify and finally modify the factors that fuel your symptoms and diseases.
