Our Functional Medicine Approach

Functional Medicine is the future of medicine, available now

It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.

Functional Medicine offers new hope by providing results and restoration of health & wellness.

By being more patient-centered in our approach, we are able to reverse the traditional, disease-centered focus of conventional medicine.

We do not blindly address isolated symptoms, instead we focus on seeing our patients as a whole person.

Our practitioners spend a significant amount of time with our patients, listening to their story and developing a timeline that incorporates an individual’s interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that have contributed to long-term complex, chronic conditions. As we uncover these ties, we can identify how to progress towards wellness.

The efficacy of Functional Medicine is rooted in a relationship between our providers and their patients. This relationship allows for the exchange of information, understanding of illness or disease, education of causes and treatments and empowerment to our patients.

We Always Ask "Why?"

We ask "why" because we want to look past the symptoms you’re experiencing and
discover the underlying forces driving those symptoms.

There is no "one size fits all" approach within Functional Medicine

Our practitioners are passionate about crafting a personalized,
systems-oriented theraputic plan for each unique patient,
using evidence and insight.

It's both an art and a science

Our Approach To Functional Medicine in Springfield Missouri Lobby


We value your health story and want to meet you right where you are on your journey. We listen to your story, learn about your life, and look at  interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence chronic disease and long-term health.

Conventional medicine all too often dismisses a patient’s story or rarely even takes the time to actually listen, leaving patients stranded in the system without answers. By knowing and understanding a patients past fully, we are able to create a personalized wellness plan to help achieve results.



In Functional Medicine, holistic and natural approaches to treatment and prevention are utilized to provide a healthier outcome. It combines the best of conventional medicine with proven and effective integrative and holistic approaches.

We view our patient as a whole person without isolating symptoms from individual systems. Conventional medicine often misses the root cause because they are focused on individual systems and do not take the time to consider the whole body as one integrated system.
