Do you live in the Redondo Beach area and are looking for a more personalized medical experience? Functional medicine may be a fantastic fit for you! This practice encompasses the mind, body, and spirit, looking at the person as a whole person, rather than just an illness. Dr. Jamie has been practicing since 2004, working through science and Christ to achieve the shared goal of healing in a new way and a deeper level. Together, you will work to find out why the illness has occurred rather than what can be done to treat the symptoms.

We use our connection with you to help benefit your care. Dr. Jamie believes that an intimate connection with the patient will improve patient care and help create a plan that is attuned to your individual life and needs. During your first consultation, you and Dr. Jamie will create the perfect plan to fit you. Our practice provides you with lifestyle coaching, nutritional coaching and talk therapy. Even some holistic methods, such as aromatherapy and acupuncture, can be worked into your individualized plan. If necessary, your plan can be tweaked until it is most beneficial for you.

Employing New Methods of Treating Chronic Illness
Often treated with medication, chronic illnesses can take a large toll on a person’s physical and mental wellbeing. We work to improve your illness by investigating the cause of it, not just on the hunt for an answer to a symptom. Oftentimes, traditional medicine will ask “what can be done to fix the symptom,” whereas functional medicine askes “why is this symptom and illness happening.” Our body functions as one unit, when one piece of the unit isn’t up to par, the entire system can fail.
Our mental and emotional health has a direct link to our physical health. The body remembers events, such as trauma, and when triggered, we remember and react as if the trauma has just occurred. The physical symptoms of these triggers can mimic the symptoms of chronic illness, such as headache, stomachache, dizziness and fatigue. Looking for the “why” will indicate what part of the body (i.e. spirit, mind, body) to begin with.
Questions You May Have
What is the difference between a functional medicine and naturopathy doctor?
Functional medicine takes into account the entire body for pieces that attribute to the illness of disease. Naturopathy medicine takes the “self-healing” and natural approach. Naturopathy came over to the United states from Germany in the 1800’s, introducing doctors to a new approach that taught used elements that were easily accessible, with only a nod to scientific medicine. Functional medicine, on the other hand, keeps scientific medicine at the wheel while incorporating other health practices in mind.
What Diseases Does Functional Medicine Treat?
The practice of functional medicine can be used to treat a variety of illnesses, including but not limited to diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and asthma. Some patients with alzheimer’s have even shown improvement using the interpersonal treatment.
