What Is Functional Medicine?
While there are many alternatives to conventional medicine, such as alternative medicine, holistic medicine, and natural (or naturopathic) medicine, Functional Medicine looks at the entire patient, searching for their source(s) of their health challenges and then seeks to eliminate the underlying causes of their disease. Functional Medicine is a dynamic approach to assessing, preventing and treating complex chronic disease, helping clinicians identify dysfunctions in the physiology and biochemistry of the human body as a primary method of improving patient health.
Diseases and Health Challenges
The misery of disease, physical injury and other health challenges, if left untreated (or treated incorrectly) can become the focus of your entire life. Dr. Macari looks at the underlying issues that are causing your disease or other health problem and leads you through the process of healing through proper nutrition, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and the use of nutraceutical supplements. There are a number of underlying conditions that can exist in the human body that bring about disease. By testing for the existence of these conditions, Dr. Macari can locate the true source of your disease(s) and set you on a path to healing. No more masking your symptoms with drugs
... Functional Medicine seeks to discover and eradicate the underlying causes of disease.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
HBOT (or hyperbaric oxygen therapy) is done using a hyperbaric chamber which uses pure oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressures to "infuse" the body's tissue with healing oxygen.
