PUREHEALTH FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

Shortly into practice, Dr. Dan Stock decided that Family Medicine, to him, wasn’t being a jack-of-all-trades but being the master of common disease. Even his medical school colleagues called him a “science geek” as he wanted to able to discuss high blood pressure in the same depth as a cardiologist. But he began finding he was spending more and more time doing things that had nothing to do with biochemistry and anatomy: things employers, insurers, governments and hospitals wanted but didn’t improve how his patients felt.
WHAT I'VE DONE
Traditional medicine teaches doctors to alleviate symptoms, even if the underlying process that caused the symptoms goes unchecked or gets made worse.
The problem is that underlying process almost always causes something else to go wrong, eventually. Holistic or alternative medicine teaches doctors to treat disease using only products and ideas that aren’t patentable (owned by one person or corporation); But nature didn’t provide a way to solve some of those underlying processes, and some patented products are useful until or if the patient can’t be cured.
Functional medicine teaches doctors to find the biochemical difference between you when you’re healthy and you when you’re sick, and then use all tools available to return you to your healthy state. In Functional Medicine, cure is the goal, not disease maintenance. I’ll provide whatever depth of care you want, but I want to offer that Functional depth of care.
