Functional Medicine

Chronic disease is defined as a condition that lasts for a year or more and requires ongoing medical care. While traditional medicine can help you manage a disease by treating the symptoms, Functional Medicine works to effect chronic disease by treating the cause.

If you suffer from a chronic disease, our Functional Medicine team can help you regain your health.

Symptoms of Chronic Disease

Symptoms are your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. The 3 deadliest chronic diseases in the United States are cancer, heart disease and stroke, and in our current healthcare system you do not go to the doctor until you have a symptom. By the time you are diagnosed with chronic disease it is too late to do anything to prevent it. Traditional medical treatments will only focus on medication for the symptom and not the removal of the actual cause. This is a reactionary approach to healthcare and it is not intended to prevent illness and disease from happening.

We often see these symptoms, and more:


Loss of Function or Mobility




Joint Pain


Stomach Ache


Leaky Gut/IBS


Autoimmune Issues

Treat The Cause, Not The Symptom

Most health care regimens are designed to cover up symptoms and involve treatments that suppress the body’s natural mechanisms. They typically involve the administration of pharmaceutical drugs, or when things get really bad, cutting and removing parts (in the form of surgery) when all else has failed.

When you treat only the symptom and not the underlying cause of a problem, you will never truly heal. Because when you stop taking the medication or treatment, the problem returns. Without addressing the root cause, you will forever be dependent on medication or therapies to make you feel better.

We Take The Functional Medicine Approach

At Vitality Medical Group, we treat chronic illness using a Functional Medicine approach. Our focus is on successfully reducing or eliminating symptoms for the patient, not the management of symptoms. We work to address why your body is not functioning correctly, not just what is not working. We want to keep you from being dependent on endless doctor visits and prescription drugs.

All causes are considered In addressing the root cause of an illness, because the issue in question with one organ or disease may be caused by an underlying problem in another area. Our approach also includes developing strategies to prevent illness from happening in the first place.

Treatment Custom-Tailored to Your Needs

Functional Medicine involves a deep understanding of genetics, biochemistry, lifestyle factors, and health and wellness concepts. When it comes to developing a care plan, there is no one size fits all, even when 2 patients have the exact set of symptoms. The cause can be very different for both.

If you are exhibiting signs of a chronic illness, we will address the core imbalances to determine what is causing it. There are many tools available to our Functional Medicine team; your doctor will access the correct tools and assemble a plan to get the best outcome for you in the quickest way possible.

At Vitality Medical Group, we practice Functional Medicine because we believe that the body is capable of self-healing. Our goal is to maximize your body’s ability to heal. We are not looking for quick fixes and temporary cover-ups.

Functional Medicine is a partnership between doctor and patient with the patient learning to control the outcome of his/her health. Health is a journey and not a destination. Functional Medicine will help guide you on your path back to health.
