Core Integrated Health of Inland Empire

Functional Medicine is a science-based field of health care that is focused on patient-centered health care, rather than disease care. It is a personalized health care clinical model that is dealing with prevention and underlying cause rather than the symptoms of the disease. Utilizing the most comprehensive laboratory testing to find out which organ or systems are involved in the disease process and providing a customized individualized treatment plan.
What many refer to as “Functional Medicine”, is personalized health care for each patient that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of just symptom-based care (sick care) for serious chronic disease.

It is a science-based field of health care that is grounded in the following philosophies:

Patient-centered health care is geared towards “patient care” vs “disease care.”
Extensive testing to find out which organ systems are involved in the disease processes.
Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease or symptoms.

By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of mainstream health care to a more patient-centered approach, “functional medicine” addresses the whole person, not just your symptoms.

We spend time with our patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. The successful care provided by our Center is driven by individualized treatment plans that address the specific underlying causes of that unique individual’s condition.

Diabetes

Discover a fresh clinical approach for patients suffering from Type 2 Diabetes. You may be able to overcome your condition and start living the happy, healthy life of your dreams! What if you could Reverse your Type 2 Diabetes? What if what you have been told was completely wrong? Expensive and side-effect-laden prescription drugs and insulin injections may not be the best treatments for treating Type 2 Diabetes long term.

In fact, many if not all of the diabetic medications carry the risk of serious side effect, some causing weight gain and ultimately perpetuating the disease long term. In the end, a drug for every disease or symptom is commonly only masking the problem and not treating root causes. In addition, having high levels of insulin floating around in your body can be very dangerous to your health! You see more than likely it’s not that your body is lacking the hormone insulin. The problem for the majority of Type 2 Diabetics is that insulin resistance has set in. This basically means that your body has lost the ability to utilize insulin appropriately.

What sense then does it make to continue to bombard your body with something it no longer recognizes and can no longer process? Especially when that substance (insulin) may be harmful to your health and may cause your disease to progress. Did you know that insulin at high levels can shorten your life expectancy, can cause you to gain weight at an alarming rate, can cause more insulin resistance, therefore, perpetuating your diabetes, can cause your blood pressure to increase, can cause cardiovascular disease and can increase your risk of developing certain forms of cancer? Well, it can do all of the above. Diabetes is a nasty disease that ruins the lives of millions of people. You can lose a leg … you can lose an arm … you can lose your “zeal” for life … and in serious cases, you can even lose your life.

But help is available. Our clinical approach to supporting type 2 diabetics is quite different – AND OFTEN MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE. You see, where most health care providers test for blood sugar levels and A1C levels and not much else, We have designed an integrative testing approach that goes into much more depth. We then use your detailed findings to tailor and customize a plan for each patient based on his or her own underlying causative factors

Thyroid

Do you continue to suffer with hypothyroid symptoms, despite thyroid hormones being “normal”, labs and other health care professionals telling you “everything seems fine”?

Many people suffering from an underactive thyroid condition continue to suffer the frustrations of persistent symptoms like:

Depression
Fatigue
Anxiety
Hair Loss
Inability to lose weight even with low-calorie diets and exercise
Constipation
Infertility, Etc.

Many hypothyroid sufferers continue to suffer and get worse with time seemingly with no explanation. Many are convinced that something is being missed! And they are actually right much of the time.

The reasons for continued suffering and frustration are often related to less than thorough evaluation by health care practitioners, which ultimately leads to an incomplete or inadequate diagnosis. An incomplete diagnosis for many patients leads to inadequate and/or less than thorough care.

This scenario commonly leads to the frustration many hypothyroid patients experience.

Our clinical model works to identify the underlying causes of persistent hypothyroid symptoms. We then customize care plans for each individual patient based on those causes.
