Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness. Functional medicine focuses on the etiology of diseases assessing the functions that create diseases. It includes testing for gut health, heavy metal exposure, brain gut connections, adrenal fatigue, mold exposure, lyme disease, viral overload, thyroid dysfunction, food sensitivities and more. Dr. Turzo has been studying functional integrative medicine since 1995 and is presently in a mentorship program with Dr. Neil Nathan MD a national expert in the field of functional medicine.
