Functional Medicine – a game changer.
Functional Medicine is an evolution in the way doctors address the healthcare needs of our time. Underlying imbalances are recognized by looking ‘upstream’ at the complex web of interactions between our individual nervous, hormonal and immune systems, our genetics, the surrounding environment and personal lifestyle factors. All of which influence both health and chronic disease.
Dr. Lori Hamilton has been our functional medicine doctor for two years. My son was struggling in every area of his world. He was 11 years old and we felt like we had to get to the bottom of his issues. The ADD med’s, the eating nothing and then large amounts, the mood swings, the inability to concentrate, obesity, processing disorder were making us all upset. Our lives felt scattered and honestly didn’t know what to do with his situation. A friend highly recommended Dr. Lori Hamilton. So we started his journey with her. We cannot say enough good things about her process. It is thorough and very focused on your individual health needs. After lots of background, a few tests, we were on our way to a new regiment with easy supplements with no side effects. We found out that half of the battle was food allergies that were interfering with his body’s process of thinking, growing and feeling well. After eliminating many poisons from his body, he started to change in all aspects of life. He was happier, talked more and beamed with conﬁdence. He lost 25 pounds in the ﬁrst few months. He no longer took prescriptions for ADD, and describe feeling “FREE”. This not only changed his world, but also changed our family dynamics. Since then, I have used Dr. Lori for my health concerns, and referred her to many others who have been battling one or another condition that nobody could put their ﬁngers on. She gets to the bottom of it and that’s priceless.
Dr. Lori has changed my life and that of our entire family. Diagnosed over 30 years ago with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, I have annually seen a doctor for checkups and blood work. No medical doctor or specialist ever suggested anything beyond increasing my prescription medications. Frustrated with multiple annoying symptoms, I sought out Dr. Lori for her expertise in Functional Medicine. She ordered many tests to analyze my body function. I am incredibly impressed with her in-depth research of my autoimmune disease and understanding of the human body. Because of her determination, I have successfully reduced prescription medication amounts and have eliminated virtually all of my symptoms. I feel better now than I have in decades. She is a beloved miracle worker in our household.
