Functional Medicine Blacksburg, VA

The goal of functional medicine in our Blacksburg office is to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms - to get to the 'root' cause. We do not treat a diagnosis that you may have received from your physician. A diagnosis is a label that in functional medicine is not as important as the health of your critical biological functions.   

We provide our patients with a personalized wellness plan that is specific for each individual patient. Utilizing genomic testing as well as metabolomic and microbiome testing,  we create an individualized wellness plan for each patient understanding their unique lifestyle and stage in life. 

Nutrition, genetics, aging, stress, lifestyle habits, toxins and environment can all increase your risk for disease and influence the hormones and brain chemicals that determine your physical and emotional health. We work with patients to prevent Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, autoimmune and other chronic complex diseases.

You have one life … one body.  Why not choose healthcare that’s designed especially for you

Functional.   Integrative.   Holistic
