Functional medicine for optimal health

Correcting natural substance imbalances for optimal health with orthomolecular and functional medicine is just part of what we do at Between the Bridges. Ortho-molecular medicine, part of functional medicine, was developed in 1968 by Dr. Abram Hoffer and Linus Pauling, PhD, a two-time winner of the world-renowned Nobel Prize. Today, this alternative therapy can help you reach optimal health and wellness by correcting imbalances or deficiencies in your body’s own natural substances.

Dr. Jeffrey J. Kotulski at Between the Bridges Healing Center is the only doctor in and around Mankato who offers orthomolecular medicine, and he has made it a key area of his practice. While the number-one goal of ortho-molecular medicine is to help you reach and maintain optimal health and wellness, it can also be used to prevent, treat or slow the progress of many degenerative conditions in many areas of the body, including:

  • Nervous system
  • Digestive system (digestive problems, gastrointestinal disorders, leaky gut syndrome)
  • Respiratory system
  • Musculoskeletal system (joint pain)
  • Vascular system
  • Reproductive organs
  • Immune system (rheumatoid arthrits symptoms, chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms
  • Skin

To determine if you are a candidate for orthomolecular medicine, Dr. Kotulski will conduct a comprehensive health history, thorough exam and a series of highly specialized tests to determine your body’s nutrient levels.

A customized balancing plan

If you lack sufficient natural substances, a customized plan will be created to bring them into balance. Ortho-molecular medicine works using megadoses of natural nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants) to ensure that your body is getting the proper amount of organic substances. Dr. Kotulski will also help you create a healthier diet to keep your nutrition balance on track.

Here are some of the things our patients are saying...

In 2006 I was faced with the news everyone dreads. “You have grade 4 lung cancer – the non smoking kind and have 4-6 months to live.” The bottom dropped out of my world! Everyone I love suffered with me, it was apparent on their faces and in their eyes. I could hear their hearts breaking as they rallied to care for me in order to meet my needs.
