What Is Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care that is grounded in the principles of biochemical individuality, the web-like interaction of physiological factors, and health as vitality, not simply as lack of disease.

Dr. Mark Hyman: Innovative, empowering, a catalyst, advocate, the experts' expert, healer...Dr. Mark Hyman is re-defining health, re-defining disease, re-defining medicine so that we can feel as good as we've ever felt. Indeed, he is the Ultra-Wellness Doc! An internationally respected physician, researcher, educator, activist, and author of numerous New York Times best-selling books, including The UltraMind Solution (also a PBS special), The UltraSimple Diet, UltraMetabolism, and UltraPrevention (winner of the Books for a Better Life Award), Dr. Hyman has dedicated his life and career to ensuring optimal health - UltraWellness - for all individuals. His new book and PBS special, The Blood Sugar Solution, will be released March 2012 to address the global epidemic of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular and other related diseases.

Susan Blum: As the fatigue expert, Dr. Blum will discuss fatigue and thyroid health - There are many causes of fatigue, and low thyroid hormones can be one of them.  On the Dr. Oz Show, we focused on T3, a very important hormone that most doctors often ignore.  All your other tests can look okay, but if you have low Free T3, you can feel tired, sluggish and experience weight gain.  Dr. Blum talked about ways to increase your T3 and suggests specific minerals to improve thyroid health.'

Dr. Wendy Warner: In addition to being Board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Wendy Warner is also Board certified in Holistic Medicine. Dr. Warner received her medical training at a time when few in the conventional medical community knew about holistic medicine. Her interest in holistic practices resulted from her desire to search out better methods of treating chronic conditions and healing herself and her patients.

Dr. David Perlmutter The longtime Naples resident will discuss the important role of lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise, in reducing a person’s risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
