Effective Help With Many Conditions in Santa Cruz, CA
Functional medicine is a personalized method for getting to the root of symptoms and restoring balance. Functional medicine is not simply about improving diet or getting more exercise or managing stress or reducing exposure to environmental toxins, all of which are critical foundations for creating a healthy human. Above all, functional medicine is the science of creating health and eliminating disease as a side effect.
