Functional Medicine

What is it? Functional Medicine (FM) is an evidence based physiologic approach to treat underlying causes of chronic disease. It is not a “band aid approach” to treat symptoms. Dr. Lisa uses a “Lifestyle” approach combining food plans, exercise, stress management and supplements to formulate protocols that are designed for your individual history and baseline lab testing.
What are common issues addressed by FM?
- Adrenal Dysfunction (i.e. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Cushings, Addison’s diseases)
- Leaky Gut (GERD, IBS, Constipation, Inflammatory Bowel disorders, etc.)
- Metabolic Issues (DM, Hyperlipidemia, HTN, Liver issues, etc.)
- Sleep Disturbance
- Neurotransmitter Issues (mood swings, anxiety, panic attacks)
- Autoimmune Disease (RA, Eczema, Psoriasis, Lupus, etc.)
- Chronic Pain


Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT)
This service addresses hormonal decline or imbalances. It is commonly used to treat symptoms of menopause (women) or andropause (men)
Symptoms such as: Decreased Libido, Hot Flashes, Decreased Muscle Tone, Bone Density Issues, Night Sweats, Vaginal Dryness, Decreased Stamina, Insomnia, Mood Swings, Anxiety , Weight Gain

Men and Women can experience this hormonal decline at an early age for many reasons or if they have had premature hysterectomy or testicular surgery.

Thyroid Management

Did you know that just checking TSH and T4 levels may be missing some other forms of Thyroid Dysfunction?
Have you ever heard of “low T3 syndrome”?
or “subclinical iodine deficient hypothyroid disease?
Dr. Lisa can do an initial Thyroid consult with a full Nutritional and Thyroid Hormone panel.
She can also manage any deficiencies with recommendations or Thyroid Hormone Prescriptions.

IV Therapy

Is a great, easy way to get a quick Nutritional and Hydration boost with IVs that contain ingredients such as: Vitamin C, B’s , Zinc, Magnesium, and Glutathione (a great detoxifying agent)!
The benefit is these ingredients bypass the gut and work within 24hours to provide a little “boost”.
Times when such a boost may be necessary are:
- Pre marathon
- Pre travel
- After a night out
- Patients with chronic conditions that may need ongoing nutritional and detoxification support.
**For more lasting effects to address chronic issues, a weekly or monthly IV schedule may be needed.
