What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is an integrative approach that looks at your diet, lifestyle, genetics, and environment to address the underlying cause of your health issues, instead of treating your symptoms with antibiotics, drugs, or surgery. Dr. Julie Martin applies her clinical expertise to personalize your treatment through an enhanced physical exam, an overview of your health history, and any lab testing recommended for your individual needs.

Don't Guess. Test.

Physical Exam using an enhanced form of muscle testing called Autonomic Response Testing (ART) to detect problems in the autonomic nervous system (ANS), where healing and regeneration take place. When the ANS is stressed, your body’s natural ability to heal is compromised.

MTHFR/Genetic Testing to look at your unique genetic DNA blueprint. Because MTHFR and other common genetic mutations are linked to depression, anxiety, heart disease, infertility, and other chronic conditions, it’s important to know if certain genes are compromised when creating your treatment protocol.

Lab Tests may include a comprehensive stool analysis or small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) test to check for any parasites or bacterial infections in the intestines, and/or a urine analysis to test for hormonal and adrenal issues and other physiological functions.

Blood work including cholesterol and lipoprotein levels, thyroid function, viral stress, and any nutritional deficiencies, along with other important markers.

Chiropractic care through gentle adjustments and soft tissue work for longer lasting results. Dr. Martin’s chiropractic skills give her important information about your body and organ systems like how your muscles and spinal areas are holding stress and pain.
