Root Causes Medicine is a functional medicine practice devoted to discovering the underlying causes of complex illness. Put simply, we search for the answers to the question, “Why?”
All of the providers at Root Causes Medicine are certified functional medicine practitioners committed to developing an individualized health plan for each new client searching for answers to these questions.
The good news is that there is often an answer and there is often something that can be done to relieve the symptoms, slow the progression, or reverse the disease process.
The hard news is that the road to healing is often long, arduous, and filled with potholes.
And, healing cannot be accomplished with any number of medications prescribed during a 10 minute office visit, no matter how many times that happens every year. Patients who have been successful have agreed that their improvement is worth the work.
