What's Functional Medicine

Functional medicine builds on the orthomolecular foundation.

These practitioners specialize in understanding how nutrient imbalances and dietary and environmental toxins affect disease processes in the body and how to correct that through lifestyle and diet with guided supplementation. They focus on understanding the roots of disease and use a variety of tests to determine exact imbalances in patients. They are at the forefront of pushing nutritional medicine forward because they use evidence based data to objectively validate clinical assessments and outcomes.

Clearly, aside from epidemiologists, they are the most boring people you will ever meet.

They will take a mind numbing 2 hour long patient history from you then send you to special labs or have you give samples to send to special labs, then bore you to brainsnot with their medical terminology when you finally get the results. At which point they will guide you around which supplements (yes, it’s the expensive ones) are best indicated to improve your health, usually with long reports to validate their fees and make sure everything is super scientifical.

Then they promptly send you to the nutritionist to figure out how to actually implement their recommendations and be beaten into submission with – you guessed it – vegetables.

Of course, this is part of my practice. I will try not to bore you to brainsnot with my geekspeak and do my best to keep it real and relevant.

I spoke to Miss Nonie here and she suggested a natural treatment and they (bedbugs) were gone after 2 treatments within a week. It was unbelievable! She also treated my niece's panic attacks when the doctors couldn't. I can't thank her enough!" (Read full review)

My teen son was suicidal. Nonie was the only person who cured Ryan! Nonie told me he needed regular protein and specific supplements in quantities she recommended. Within 6 weeks he was totally well again! A year later he is still fine. I am so grateful. (Read full review)

Nonie was able to figure out what I’ve been struggling with since as early as I can remember. Something that doctors haven’t been able to do my whole life. No doctor I've seen thought to look at diet. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. (Read full review)
