Tarrytown Functional Medicine brings together the best of traditional and complementary medicine to offer a complete approach to wellness. Whether you're suffering from a specific ailment or are looking to improve your health more generally, we'll concentrate on your overall well being, not just a particular symptom or disease.
In Functional Medicine we look at the whole body as a system in which all the organs depend on each other and are interrelated. We use laboratory and nutritional testing to find out the underlying causes of the symptoms you are experiencing. Then we make an individualized program to correct the imbalances and deficiencies. This might consist of medications, supplements, or weight loss and diet programs, depending on what you need. The power is in the in the accuracy of the testing and the combination of traditional and holistic approaches.
If you have existing health challenges, we look to identify and treat underlying issues that may be contributing to the severity of your condition. These may include:
- Environmental factors (e.g. toxic exposure or heavy metal overload)
- Lifestyle factors (e.g. stress, overweight)
- Hormonal imbalances (e.g. Insulin resistance, menopausal symptoms, adrenal fatigue)
- Dietary factors (e.g. food allergies, nutritional deficiencies, candida or fungal infections, gluten intolerance)
- Other aggravating circumstances (e.g. inflammation, side effects of medications)
- Subclinical infections (e.g. tooth and gum disease, dysbiosis)
These can lead to compromises in the immune system and difficulties eliminating toxic substances from the body. Over time, these deficiencies and imbalances, in association with a person’s own genetic uniqueness, can lead to disease.
If you're essentially healthy, we focus on identifying imbalances that might be preventing you from feeling your best, and spotting risk factors that could cause illness in the future
At Tarrytown Functional Medicine, we believe that anyone can improve their health through the choices they make everyday. There are very few diseases that are purely genetic. There is a genetic component to every disease but most diseases stem from lifestyle and diet choices that do not allow for the optimal expression of your genes. Therefore, there are things you can do to minimize pain and maximize your well being no matter what disease you have.
We're here to help you find the path to better health.
