Functional Medicine in Bridgeport, WV
Your body is an amazing self healing organism. You are meant to be energetic, vibrant and full of life. With proper nutrition, energy input and removal of toxins, your body can operate the way it is designed. Long term untreated disease states rob you of your well-being, health and enjoyment of life.
Functional medicine addresses the underlying cause of your disease; it is not the practice of symptom treatment. Dr. James Leonette use a systematic and science based approach to identify where your body systems are working too hard or inappropriately. The holistic approach allows us to study and address many areas of your health. We look at your body, blood chemistry, meridians, diet and much more.
We work to identify what the culprit is! In many cases it may be an unknown autoimmune disease, low utilization of energy, viral infection or heavy metal toxicity. When the body is under high level of stress, it simply does not have the energy resources needed to handle it. When your energy levels are depleted, the body in not able to properly handle many day-to-day activities from excreting toxins to breaking down unneeded antibodies. Inability to handle these routine stresses leads to many chronic disease states including:
- Autoimmune disorders
- Hashimoto's thyroid
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Hormone Imbalance
- Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia
- Digestive issues
- Biotoxic Illness
- Epstein Barr - Mono
"We don't treat the disease, we evaluate the person looking for each co-cause and treat each of those" - Dr. Robert DeMartino
