What is root cause medicine?

Root cause medicine is a method of treatment that seeks to identify and resolve the cause (the root) of symptoms (the branches). Chronic inflammatory conditions usually have a lifestyle & nutrition component as well as overlooked causes that agitate the immune system, hormones, and nervous system. These inflammatory triggers (like chronic infections, stress, and digestive dysfunction to name a few) are different for each person. That’s why we use a careful history, physical exam, and advanced lab testing to eliminate blindspots and create personalized plans for YOUR root cause(s).
