What Is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a rapidly growing field establishing itself into the mainstream of natural healthcare. It offers major advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of many of modern society’s chronic illnesses. These illnesses are largely instigated by stress, environmental toxicity, and nutritional deficiencies.
Doctors trained in Functional Medicine are able to identify the root causes of various health conditions through the use of several different scientifically documented lab tests.
Unlike standard medical tests, functional medicine lab testing goes to the next level, uncovering the biochemical and metabolic imbalances, which contribute to specific disease processes.
Based on the results of these tests, a treatment plan and healthy life style counseling that is specific to the needs of each individual will be developed. Patient specific treatment protocols will be designed to stop, reverse, and prevent the foundational health dysfunctions that lead to chronic illness and it’s symptoms.
Functional Medicine has been called “The Future of Healthcare”. The Functional Medicine approach is to gradually restore a person to the highest state of health by optimizing biological, biochemical, and psychological function. As regeneration and rejuvenation occur in an individual, they will begin to experience a renewed sense of well being and a significant increase in health and vitality.
We begin the journey to wellness with an in-depth consultation with the doctor and the filling out of the four-page Symptom Survey Questionnaire. The doctor will want to thoroughly discuss your health history as well as assess your history of significant stressors in your life that have contributed to downturns in your health. Please be encouraged! There is hope!
Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 24:14
What Our Clients Say
I went to Dr. Dave as I was having sporadic, sharp (sciatic) pinches during the sixth month of my pregnancy that were keeping me from my daily routine and work out regimen. By my fourth appointment with laser therapy and adjustments I no longer experienced the shooting pain and only required monthly adjustments!
Dr. Dave's knowledge and experience was completely reassuring and his gentle demeanor made me feel quite comfortable. I was able to schedule all four of my appointments within a two weeks span, so my pain was not drug out. I'd highly recommend his practice to anyone; pregnant or not!
I was referred to Dr. Ramsey by a co-worker after complaining to her about my neck pain. I went for a consultation and was very impressed on well he listened to me describe my issues. (I had quite a lot pain in different parts of my body). We discussed my health history and he recommended an ex-ray so he could see where the pain was coming from. From there he came up with a treatment plan. If a treatment isn't working on me he tries a different treatment. I have had a great improvement. He is also helping me with my overall health. I would highly recommend Dr. Ramsey
I went to Dave because my brother had a heart attack and I was worried about my own blood flow and possibility of a heart attack. I knew of Dave and he suggested that I come in and he could run some tests. He used a endocardiograph and used clinical nutrition to improve my cardiovascular health. His spinal adjustments were right on too. It's nice to work with someone who's at the top of his game, educated, genuinely cares about my health and took the time to explain the process and results. He's a great guy and we had some good laughs too. I highly recommend Dave and his services.
