Philosophy and Goal:
Dr. Harry's approach to any dysregulation or imbalance found in the body is simple and two-fold. First, he believes that the underlying or root cause of the problem needs to be addressed in order to give a patient permanent relief. Focusing solely on masking the signs and symptoms the patient is experiencing is not a correct or prudent approach. Second, any intervention should be gentle, specific, and consistent for it to be effective.
Dr. Harry focuses in providing patients with the opportunity to take control of their own unique health needs through the science of nutrition, herbal support, and lifestyle recommendations. He uses the concepts and principals of functional medicine to help analyze the body for any imbalances.
What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is a science-based field of healthcare that examines the core clinical imbalances that underlie various disease conditions. Some of the tools used to uncover these imbalances include lab work, family history, lifestyle assessment, and a physical exam. Functional medicine along with herbal and nutritional support seek to shift the traditional disease centered approach to a more patient centered approach. It is dedicated to improving the management of imbalances by intervening at multiple levels and restoring each patient’s functionality and health.
