FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE/ NUTRITION

Dr. Cooley of Progressive Chiropractic has over 26 years of clinical experience in functional medicine, integrative health and clinical nutrition.

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?

It represents a new model of health care that focuses on identifying the root causes of disease; not simply managing symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners diagnose and treat the body as an integrated unit. They look to identify imbalances in certain “core systems” of the body that can eventually lead to illness. The approach is Patient centered; not disease centered. It places significant emphasis on nutrition tailored to an individual’s body, highly specialized natural medicine prescription and lifestyle coaching.

Conditions we have helped:

  • Fatigue/Insomnia
  • Weight loss/metabolism
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Migraines/Headache
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Eczema /Psoriasis
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Thyroid/adrenal disorders
  • Digestive disorders(IBD/GERD/IBS/reflux)

  • Seeks to identify the root causes of disease and views the body as one integrated system.
  • Focuses on imbalances such as sleep, toxin stress and inflammation.
  • Your personalized designed protocol includes: lifestyle recommendations, customized nutrition plan , exercise prescript, supplementation and botanical medicine

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Patient’s  complete a series of comprehensive questionnaires that reveal how seven “core” systems in the body are functioning. We evaluate things such as digestion, stress, detoxification, sleep, cognitive function, hormones, energy level, metabolism and body composition (fat vs. muscle mass.)

The questionnaire’s are then studied by Dr. Cooley and interpreted to determine what nutritional; lifestyle and natural medicine protocols should be used for each individual patient.  These customized tailored treatment plans focus on the restoration and maintenance of whole body health; not just to diminish symptoms.

Dr. Cooley is affiliated with numerous functional medicine labs that offer a wide variety of advanced testing resources for the treatment of complex diseases.  Traditional labs focus on diseases or what made you sick. Functional labs identify problems before diseases develop which allows us to focus on prevention of disease and optimal health.
