An Introduction to Functional Medicine & Weight Loss
At our Weight Loss Medical Center in Sorrento Valley my approach to how we help patients lose weight, gain strength and manage pain is Functional.
Functional Medicine is…
“Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.”

How Functional Medicine Works
By taking the time to learn more about the medical, emotional and familial history of our patients we can custom-create roadmaps to weight loss success that continually progresses. Not just lose weight quick schemes or diets that may help to “jump-start” a weight loss trajectory but not necessarily prove successful in the long run.
We’re often harping about coming in for a Free Consultation.
It’s not just a means to get you in and pump you for other services. It’s truly the only way to help you and us prescribe the best weight loss plan for your body, mind and spirit.
Functional Medicine allows us to…
- We can help you beat the underlying obstacles your weight loss is facing.
- Address, specifically, challenges like depression, stress and fatigue.
- Treat chronic pain, or thyroid issues that halt your weight loss progress.
- Provide meal plans, supplement suggestions, and toxin cleanses that will actually help you.
Ultimately, our medical weight loss center’s mission is to provide every patient with a roadmap to a healthy body for life.
