Functional Medicine* and Integrative Wellness requires Doctors to engage in further education outside of their core training and within their scope of practice.

If you have ever had stiff, achy, or swollen joints then you’ve experienced arthritis symptoms. You’re painfully aware of how it prevents you if you suffer from arthritis. We provide arthritis care and create a personalized treatment plan centered around wellness. Our process includes detailed laboratory testing, a deep history, nutritional wellness, evaluating harmful environmental toxins you may have been exposed to, intestinal microbes, hormone disbalance and more.

Regrettably, at least 50 million Americans suffer from arthritis and two-thirds of those affected are under the age of 65.

Nearly half will also have one other health condition such as obesity, diabetes, anxiety, depression, gout, or cardiovascular disease. These conditions have a lot of things in common — most notably that they are inflammatory in character. Conventional responses to this condition stay concentrated on masking the pain with an analgesic, or painkilling medication — and finally operation. These remedies never restore joint function and eliminate or don’t addresses the actual cause of arthritic inflammation.

There are arthritis subtypes that have qualities and unique symptoms. These subtypes are broken up Degenerative/Inflammatory and Autoimmune Degenerative/Inflammatory

Kinds of Arthritis contains:

  • Osteoarthritis (most common type)
  • Gout
  • Pseudogout

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Psoriatic arthritis (associated with Psoriasis of Skin or Nails)
