What exactly is "Functional Medicine"?
Functional medicine is personalized health care for the individual. A clinical model that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of just the symptoms associated with serious and life-altering chronic diseases. It is a science- based field of health care that is grounded in the following principles:
- Patient-centered health care emphasizes "patient care" rather than "disease care."
- Extensive testing to find out which organ systems are involved in the disease process.
- Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease.
By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of health care to a more patient- centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. We tend to spend much more 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 treatment programs provided by Next Advanced Medicine introduce an individualized treatment plan for the specific causes of that unique individual's disease.

Are you suffering from Type II Diabetes or Hypothyroidism?
Next Advanced Medicine offers the finest alternative, natural approaches for Type II Diabetes and Hypothyroidism. We may be able to help you overcome your condition and start living a happy, healthy life! It is well known that prescription drugs are often necessary. However it is also clear that prescription drugs can lead to side effects. In addition there are times when prescription drugs can lead to a worsening of the condition they intend to treat. A balanced use of prescription medication to keep patients safe should always be used in balance with offering a customized treatment program designed to get to the root issues for each individual. A treatment program that works to eventually get patients off of medications when possible.
In fact many of the diabetic medications carry the risk of serious side effects...some causing weight gain and ultimately perpetuating the disease long term. A drug for every disease or symptom often only 'masks the problem' and allows for the underlying causes to remain untreated. In addition, high levels of insulin in your body can be very dangerous to your health! More than likely it's not that your body is lacking the hormone insulin. The problem for the majority of Type II Diabetics is that insulin resistance has set in ... this means that the body has lost the ability to utilize insulin appropriately.
Why bombard your body with something it no longer recognizes and can no longer process? Extra amounts of insulin may be harmful to your health and can cause your disease to progress or lead to other health problems.

You have pain and you've decided to do something about it! Good for you! Ask yourself this... Is your treatment providing you with before and after xrays showing you the correction of your spine back to a normal position or are you like so many other people getting traditional treatments that only yield temporary relief with no real underlying change.?
Poor posture is very often at the root of the problem:
What kind of health problems can come from poor posture?
- 80-90% of Adults will suffer from spine pain sometime in their life.
- Spine pain is the THIRD leading reason for hospital Admissions
- There are 3 distinct curves of the spine
The Cerebellum is the portion of brain that records muscle memory and memorizes patterns.This is why your muscles hold an injured or repetitive stressed position or posture. One suffering from this may not even realize how far out of alignment their spine is and how much stress is being put on certain muscles and discs as a result.
This is why symptoms and pain seem to ALWAYS come back because the underlying posture (cause) has never been addressed.
