My Ozark and Springfield Functional Medicine Clinic


ormally, when you see the doctor you are prescribed medication to treat your brain or nervous system condition, but it only works for as long as you take the medicine. What I discovered through my education and years of experience in functional medicine is when an illness is addressed at the root cause level the result can be resilient health. Are you ready for a dramatic change in your health’s trajectory?

How We Can Help You If You Have A Neurological Disease

If you’re affected by neurological disease, you got to think about what traditionally happens. You go to the doctor, the doctor makes a diagnosis after taking a good history and physical, and generally recommends a treatment. And that treatment by and large is a medication. Sometimes it’s a surgery, sometimes it’s some therapy, but generally it’s a medication. But the problem is that the medication is going to be prescribed generally for the rest of your life.

The benefit of my Springfield functional medicine clinic is to come to a physician to get help addressing the root causes of your condition. I can use medication in my clinic to treat you if we need to because I’m a medical doctor. But if you want to address the root causes of your condition, what I can offer you is the possibility of helping you to change that trajectory so that you are not on medication in the long run, or the dosing of that medication is kept to a minimum.
