Functional Nutrition

Functional Nutrition Holds the Answer

Are you tired of taking drugs?

Here’s a classic example of what we see on a daily basis in our practice. A patient comes in complaining of some combination of the below symptoms:

  • sore joints and back pain
  • fatigue
  • headaches
  • weight gain
  • depression or anxiety
  • autoimmune disease
  • trouble sleeping
  • seasonal allergies

The patient is taking several medications to treat the discomfort associated with their symptoms. We know that drugs offer only temporary results and come with many, often dangerous, side effects.

But what should one do when drugs are the only treatment offered? It can be a predicament, but it doesn’t have to be when you know a Functional Medicine practitioner specializing in Root Cause Medicine.

We Treat The Root Cause Naturally

Would you ever think that a long list of complaints such as the one listed above could have a common root cause? The beauty of root cause medicine as practiced by our nutritionists, is it’s designed to find and treat the underlying root cause of health problems naturally. No drugs are typically required and the increased feeling of well-being is dramatic.

Do You Need a Functional Nutritionist?

If it makes sense to you that symptoms are NOT normal and masking them is just a temporary measure, then functional nutrition, practiced by licensed doctors, is a powerful method of optimizing the body’s function and regaining your health.

Too often we become numb or resigned to suffering with our symptoms, simply because the traditional medical model of taking a pill has not been successful.

Your body is designed to function optimally with great energy, vitality and mental clarity. If it’s not doing so, it needs help. We help the  world’s busiest people regain, retain and reclaim their health, energy and resilience.

What about the “Quick Fix” Drugs Offer?

Research tells us much of the health problems Americans suffer from are a direct result of poor diet and lifestyle. Changing diet and lifestyle is not difficult and it requires no drugs or surgery – that’s the good news.

The bad news is it doesn’t involve the ‘quick fix’ of simply swallowing a pill. Feeling good again through nutrition is a slower process it’s true, but at least it isn’t temporary nor does it have dangerous side effects.

Our certified functional nutritionists are licensed doctors trained to discover the underlying root cause of the problem and, typically, are able to treat it with natural methods.

What’s exciting is a single root cause often underlies more than one symptom, meaning just because you suffer with many different symptoms does not mean you will require many different treatments. Typically one or two root causes underlie a lifetime of health complaints.

We have a Medical Doctor and Functional Nutritionists working together as a Team

Here at Root Cause Medical Clinic the Functional Nutrition department is composed of a medical doctor, a registered nurse, and certified nutritionists who are also certified Functional Medicine practitioners. These doctors work together as a team to determine the best approach to resolve your health problems. After an in-depth examination and state-of-the-art laboratory testing, a diagnosis is made and a tailor made treatment plan is created.

Treatment Results Aren’t Temporary

Conditions ranging from digestive problems and overweight, to autoimmune disease and headaches, to fatigue and depression, all are treated successfully. Treatment does not involve a quick, temporary change that drugs afford, but rather, a permanent lasting change will occur because your condition is being resolved from its underlying root cause. Not only will your results not be temporary, but, most importantly, you will understand how to keep it that way.

We like to say that you leave with “The Care and Feeding Manual” for your body at the completion of your program. You not only have regained your health but you know how to retain it.

What Patients Say

I felt more energy, less fatigue, and even a lot less moodiness!

Within days of going on a modified elimination diet, I felt more energy, less fatigue, and even a lot less moodiness! I didn’t know exactly what the key was until my lab tests came back, but I knew they’d hit on something important. I never would have guessed at my intolerance for gluten without them. Now, gluten-free for over 4 months, I have lost weight and I’m able to start reintroducing lactose into my diet. – N.E.


My symptoms have disappeared after 2 months of treatment!

Before coming to Root Cause Medical I was fatigued all the time no matter how much I slept the day before. My energy level was horribly low and unnatural for my age (33). In addition to the fatigue I also had problems with insomnia and neck and back pain. Even though I had these symptoms for many years, they have disappeared after 2 months of treatment! – T.H.


I lost 16 pounds

I lost 16 pounds and look REMARKABLE for my age!

In the past six months, I have lost 16 pounds without trying to diet. My routine medical tests have gone from “normal” to “remarkable for a person of my age.” I am taking no medications. Life is worth living again. I do my best to spread the word. I could have saved years of pain and a good deal of medical expense if I had only known about the Root Cause Medical sooner. – N.H.


No more fatigue and moodiness!

Within days of going on a modified elimination diet, I felt more energy, less fatigue, and even a lot less moodiness! I didn’t know exactly what the key was until my lab tests came back, but I knew they’d hit on something important. I am, literally, a new woman. – N.E.


I’ve discovered the secret to life!

In the first 7 weeks of my program I lost 33 pounds and my body mass index category dropped from “obese” to merely “overweight”. This weight loss caused my pant size to drop from a 46 waist to a 38 waist and even my neck size dropped an inch and a half. I’m beyond thrilled with these results; it feels like I’ve discovered the secret to life! – E.G.


Regained my zest for life!

It has been 8 weeks since my first appointment where I sought help for my diabetes, and now I feel unbelievable. I’m eating better than I ever have. I feel like I’m 20 years younger, my body is waking up, starting to feel well on a regular basis, and is happy! 

The best part – spiritually I feel like someone has lifted a pair of 300 pound boulders from my shoulders. I’ve regained my zest for life and I’m so excited as its only going to get better! – T.H.


no more fatigue and moodinessA true lifesaver!

I have been suffering for many years with illness, having been diagnosed with autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, Hypothyroidism, Asthma, and Osteoporosis. . Since visiting the clinic a month ago, I am showing marked improvement, and I consider Root Cause Medical to be a true lifesaver!


Future free of suffering!

I am 37 years old and have been chronically ill, bedridden and on prescription steroids for nearly 20 years. I have suffered from disabling chronic fatigue, muscle and joint pain, chronic infections, insomnia, allergies, asthma and irritable bowel syndrome. Thanks to Root Cause Medical, I am now nearly OFF my steroids and feel incredible. I feel like I have a future to live into now – a future full of new found happiness and vigor, the possibility of children and a future free of suffering! – E.M.
