Functional Health where the root cause of your health issue is uncovered
HTLAEH..turn yours around!  Find out what your regular checkup doesn't tell you....
  • Have you been told by your health care provider that all your tests are NORMAL, yet you know that something is WRONG?  Have you been told not to worry about it, or that it is just a normal part of aging or worse, that it is all in your head?
  • Are you feeling overwhelmed by all the conflicting health information available?
  • Do you feel lost in the healthcare system and not sure what to do?

At Functional Health, we don't believe that being frustrated, confused or ignored is an acceptable way to manage your health. So we offer a different approach.  Instead of focusing on your symptoms, we utilize a Functional Medicine approach to help uncover the root cause of your health concerns.

Our bodies are complex...
The body consists of highly integrated systems just like the strands that make up a web. If a problem occurs in one area, it may affect the physiology in another area causing seemingly "unrelated" symptoms. If we just focus on a label or symptoms alone, we may miss the true source of the problem.

We are each so different...
Even though our bodies are designed to work the same, we are unique. It is important to understand that each person can have the same symptoms for completely different reasons.  Our goal is to find and correct your specific physiological and biochemical imbalances

For example, maybe you experience fatigue. What if it wasn't due to lack of sleep?  Could it be problems with dietary intake, food sensitivies, anemic patterns, endocrine system imbalances such as the adrenals or hormones, detoxification, immune or maybe gut issues? As you can see, there may be multiple reasons for the same set of symptoms.

After determining probable cause, we then design a protocol to meet your specific needs. For example, for many people, diet changes are required. Other times, supplements might be necessary. For some, a detoxification protocol is called for. For others, exercise is the key. We just don't subscribe to a "one size fits all" solution.

We help with many common health issues...

We specialize in thyroid and endocrine health (adrenals, hormones, etc). But since these systems are interconnected, all systems in the body must be evaluated. Therefore, we address health concerns throughout the body.
  • Weight gain
  • Digestion issues
  • Fatigue
  • Thyroid problems
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Food addictions, intolerances, and sensitivities
  • Chemical sensitivity
  • Inflammation
  • Autoimmune issues
  • and more...

Our assessment is extremely thorough...
We consider your signs and symptoms, medical history, diet and lifestyle choices,
blood test results, bioimpedance analysis, advanced functional diagnostic testing, food sensitivity testing, and in-office and at home testing to try to determine where metabolic dysfunction may be occurring. We then base your individualized program on your lifestyle, genetics, and environmental factors utilizing the latest advances found in the scientific literature. 

Complete laboratory test services...
We offer
standard blood testing and advanced functional diagnostic testing including organic acids to determine metabolic imbalances, DNA complete stool analysis for digestion issues, salivary sex hormone and adrenal stress index testing, autoimmune testing as well as a host of others in order to get a better understanding of possible obstacles to your health.

In-office and remote assessments...
Since many of our tests can be performed in the comfort of your own home or at a local laboratory draw station, we are able to offer phone, private VoIP/video meeting, Skype or Google Video consultations to help those outside of the San Diego area.
