Many people do not feel good, but standard medical tests show little or nothing. X-rays, MRI's, standard blood and urine tests only show pathological changes. They are static in nature. Functional Medicine aims to determine what kinds of internal or external stressors cause the abnormal function, which in turn causes the often very deceptive symptoms.
The functional approach recognizes that unique factors may affect a person's state of wellness. This approach focuses on the entire body and its balance of all the organ systems.
Desert Sierra employs a systematic, patient centered approach to find the cause or root of a problem. We examine the underlying physiological factors and effects that influence the progression of disorders associated with chronic disease.
