Functional Medicine and Functional Neurology
Finally, a way to receive clarity about the root causes of medical and neurological conditions — and return to a healthy, vital life.
Sometimes, what you need most from a doctor isn’t a prescription, but an answer.
When traditional medicine focuses only on suppressing symptoms, patients are the ones left feeling helpless.
It’s natural to seek help for troublesome symptoms, but if medications and treatments are prescribed without understanding why symptoms are surfacing, relief is often limited and temporary at best. This leaves patients feeling betrayed by their bodies and abandoned by their care providers, believing that better outcomes either don’t exist or that they must find an alternative solution on their own. Additionally, poor physical health can compound over time, leading to larger neurological and psychological issues that create dysfunction and contribute to years of unresolved pain and illness. These factors combined are enough to make any individual feel hopeless and resolved to a life of poor health with no solution in sight. Without answers, even minor medical conditions can feel devastating as they interfere with daily living.

Understanding Functional Medicine and Functional Neurology
In contrast to the symptom-centered traditional model, functional medicine is patient-centered medical healing. Instead of treating health problems as isolated diseases, it considers each individual medically, physically, neurologically, and psychologically.
Beginning with the relationship between physician and patient, functional medicine aims to achieve optimal health, best found when a patient is fully invested in their health transformation, including changes in diet, lifestyle, and physical activity. First, your doctor will obtain a comprehensive history detailing all facets of your lifestyle, medical background, and miscellaneous relevant information. Using scientific principles, diagnostic tests, and personal data, your doctor will then form a collaborative treatment plan with you that will seek to find and treat the underlying cause of any present conditions.
Similarly, Functional Neurology considers the neurological and psychological aspects of a given condition while using the same patient-centered principles. Many individuals are surprised to find the brain-body connection is a significant factor in the treatment of what society labels a physical ailment.
At Michigan Health & Wellness Center, we use both Functional Medicine and Functional Neurology to not only restore health and relieve pain, but to set each individual on the path to a lifetime of good health, empowering patients as active participants in their treatment and long-term vitality.
Functional Medicine: The Answers (& Solutions!) You’ve Been Looking For
Restore Health, Receive Clarity, and Relieve Pain without Prescriptions
There’s a growing dissatisfaction with the traditional treatment of illness, and rightfully so. Patients deserve to understand why symptoms manifest in their body. They — and YOU — deserve to feel like an equal decision-maker in the care of both body and mind, without relying on invasive treatments and surgeries or intense prescription drugs and the consequences they come with as the first or only option.
Longevity and living life healthfully, to the fullest, should be the ultimate goal. The beauty of Functional Medicine and Functional Neurology is its unique ability to remove clinical loads and integrate diet, lifestyle, and alternative therapies to promote healing without these drugs and medical treatments. Once the root causes of a condition is identified, the patient and doctor work as a team to devise a treatment plan that may involve nutrition, supplementation, lifestyle changes, alternative therapies, and more based on the diagnosis.
Functional Medicine is a different thinking process. It’s a step beyond alternative medicine in it’s patient-centered approach, getting to the root cause and ultimately to a treatment that will actually produce results, offering resolution in more than 60% of cases and a slowed progression of disease in others.
If you’ve felt frustrated with the limitations of traditional treatment; defeated by a growing problem that affects your quality of life and several unsuccessful attempts to relieve its symptoms; disheartened that no one can seem to tell you WHY; or simply been told there are no better options available for you…
We want you to know there IS hope and healing with Functional Medicine.
