Simply stated, functional medicine describes a medical approach focused on the optimal functioning of the body and its organs. Often, this means correcting an imbalance of natural substances within the body. This is where the wellness professionals at Between the Bridges Healing Center come in.
How Functional Medicine Works
Orthomolecular medicine utilizes optimal doses of natural nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to ensure that your body is getting the proper amount of these organic substances. In fact, the Between the Bridges Healing Center store offers a wide variety of these supplements, including medical foods.
To determine if you are a candidate for orthomolecular medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Kotulski will conduct a comprehensive health history, a thorough exam, and a series of highly specialized tests to determine your body’s nutrient levels. Then, a customized plan is created to correct the particular imbalance.
In conjunction with this natural supplementation, Dr. Kotulski will also help you create a healthier diet to maintain your nutritional balance.
What It Treats
This alternative therapy can optimize your health and wellness. It can also be used to prevent, treat, or slow the progression of many degenerative conditions throughout the body, including the:
- Digestive system
- Immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis and chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms
- Musculoskeletal system (joint pain)
- Nervous system
- Reproductive organs
- Respiratory system
- Vascular system (blood vessels and circulation)
