This article describes an approach that’s worth a try. Note, in particular, his definition of “functional medicine” – coined in the modern age as if it’s a new concept, it isn’t. A study of the cause of health and a discipline dedicated to promoting health is the basis for Chiropractic care, for over 125 years, for example.
This doctor’s approach is consistent with all the currently effective approaches to weight loss and rejuvenation. It includes the following elements in comment with, for example The Ultra Lite Weight Loss System (a system that we recommend): a detox diet, a diet that excludes all the allergy causing suspects, a whole food diet of super foods, and enough water to facilitate the work getting done.

The drug companies allegedly used multiple means to get non-cancer patients to request opiods. This concerted effort to expand their market increased sales dramatically.
“In 2010, 254 million prescriptions for opioids were filled in the U.S. – enough to medicate every adult in America around the clock for a month. Twenty percent of all doctor’s visits result in the prescription of an opioid (nearly double the rate in 2000). Opioids – once a niche drug – are now the most prescribed class of drugs – more than blood pressure, cholesterol, or anxiety drug.”

I could not agree more. The Functional Movement Screen testing, rehabilitation and thought process are the state of the art in performance training.
