Conditions

Simply put –

      Treat the underlying cause

       and watch the body heal.

 

Over the past few decades we have moved from a health-care model to a disease-care model. New diseases and new conditions are being recognized every day, while at the same time our population’s health is steadily declining. Now, 25% of  children under the age of 5, and 50% of adults have at least one chronic health problem. Using the unique capabilitites of Functional Medicine, Dr. Petro is able to have a better grasp of the underlying conditions and employ treatment to help reverse the illness or condition. For example, inflammation is widely known to be one of the most destructive conditions in the human body, and is a contributing factor in all disease processes. The question is not ‘What drug should you take to calm the inflammation?’  but rather ‘Why is the inflammation occurring?’  Discovering the answers to the ‘WHY’ questions paves the way for life-changing outcomes.
