Functional Medicine: An Operating System for Integrative Medicine

The functional medicine model moves away from a histopathological definition of disease that results in a classification of a patient’s dysfunction into a limited number of descriptors to that of a postgenomic definition of disease that is based on the unique nature of how the person’s genome interacts with their environment and lifestyle in their expression of function.

The Nuts and Bolts of Low-Level Laser (Light) Therapy

Soon after the discovery of lasers in the 1960s, it was realized that laser therapy had the potential to improve wound healing and reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. In recent years the field sometimes known as photobiomodulation has broadened to include light-emitting diodes and other light sources, and the range of wavelengths used now includes many in the red and near-infrared.

Visceral and Somatic Disorders: Tissue Softening with Frequency-Specific Microcurrent

Frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) is an emerging technique for treating many health conditions. Pairs of frequencies of microampere-level electrical stimulation are applied to particular places on the skin of a patient via combinations of conductive graphite gloves, moistened towels, or gel electrode patches. A consistent finding is a profound and palpable tissue softening and warming within seconds of applying frequencies appropriate for treating particular conditions. Read more.
