We employ a personalized style of medicine that approaches chronic medical conditions with a focus on finding the core imbalances or underlying causes rather than just treat the symptoms.
The conditions treated are not limited to these, as the scope of medicine is broad, but these are some of the most common conditions seen and treated by our care team at Functional Medicine:
- Hormonal Imbalances
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Fatigue/Low energy
- Metabolic Imbalance (blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar)
- Insulin resistance
- Thyroid hormone Imbalances
- Testosterone Imbalance
- Estradiol/Progesterone Imbalance
- HPA (Adrenal) Imbalance
- Digestive Disorders (GERD, IBD, IBS)
At Functional Medicine, you’ll be joined by a care team of doctors, health coaches, nutritionists and acupuncturists to ensure the fastest return back to health.
As such, our integrative medicine approach under the guidance of Dr. Rice is based on the following:
- Complementary to and inclusive a variety of treatment modalities
- Holistically oriented, focusing on mind, body and spirit
- Focuses on optimal health – not just the absence of symptoms or dis-ease
- Requires patient to take an active role in health creation
- Acknowledges multi-factorial nature of complex situation, requiring a multi-dimensional approach
- A preference for natural, non-toxic therapies – harnessing the body’s ability to heal itself
