Regaining Your Health with Functional Medicine

Root Cause Medical Clinic specializes in the natural treatment of many chronic conditions WITHOUT the use of surgery or drugs

Functional Medicine is very different from conventional medicine

If you are looking to reclaim your health and dislike the idea of taking drugs which have dangerous side effects, then Functional Medicine is for you.

Have you ever wondered:

  • WHY your body developed the condition and symptoms bothering you?
  • WHAT you can do to heal your problem?
  • HOW to regain your health completely and stably without relying on drugs?


Success Rate

Functional Medicine treats your body as a whole. Conventional Medicine masks symptoms with a drug.

No part of your body functions alone; each organ and system works in coordination. This statement is the cornerstone of Functional Medicine. It explains our high success rate. We respect your body and its ability to heal itself when given the proper assistance.

Consider the common skin condition called eczema. Conventional medicine treats the skin topically with a steroid: this provides temporary relief... but long-term negative side effects. Functional Medicine addresses your diet and gut health, yielding a solution for eczema.

We do a comprehensive examination and use state-of-the-art laboratory testing to diagnose the root cause of your problem and treat it. We have decades of diagnostic and treatment experience. In combination with standard and specialized laboratory tests, we design a treatment program tailored to your needs.

Patient Success Story of Mark

It just reached a point in my life where I felt horrific.

I'm not the type of person that goes to Doctors. I came in and it was amazing. It was.... human.

Within the first week I felt 100x better than I felt when I first came in.

I have more color in my skin, more skip in my step and this is the way you're supposed to feel.

Anyone that has a set of ears, I tell them Root Cause, you gotta go.

Patient Success Story of
Kimberly D.

Last September, after mentioning that I was struggling with headaches that appeared to be seasonal. They squeezed me in that SAME day and after 15 minutes with Dr. Rupa,
I was shocked to realize that the TMJ I had was not only more than likely the cause of my headaches
About one month into my PT and chiropractic care with Dr. Sterling, headaches were gone and my jaw clicking reduced dramatically.
I’m so grateful for the entire Root Cause team!

Alice C.

Not only has my health improved significantly in 4 months, but my perspective on functional medicine has changed my life.

For years I could not find a doctor who took the time to really know “my” body from a holistic view.

If you are someone who wants to dig deeper and know what is causing your unpleasant symptoms, please do yourself a favor and call them for a consultation. It is worth your time. The entire staff is friendly and efficient to ensure you’re well being.

Patient Success Story of
Stella B.

I was in an exercise class and I nearly passed out. I wasn’t able to eat. I was vomiting almost nightly and aspirating.

Nothing has worked and every time I’ve gone back to the doctor, just more pills... 34 plus pills a day.

I came here, it was amazing from day one. Then within, I would say the first week, I didn’t have acid reflux in the middle of the night. I wasn’t vomiting and I would say I didn’t throw up anymore at night. We started the elimination diet and I could eat again, and I actually wanted to eat again.

I feel amazing and I feel like I have my life back. It has just been absolutely amazing.

Are you frustrated with your regular physician not listening to you and prescribing more drugs?

  • Has your conventional doctor ever told you that the ONLY treatment for your problem is a drug?
  • Has your conventional doctor ever told you that, despite your list of complaints, that you are “fine”?
  • Has your conventional doctor ever told you that your problem is stress related or “all in your head”?

Sadly, this happens often; you are not alone. Unfortunately, it can make you feel that you are “stuck” and destined to continue suffering with your symptoms.

Your body is designed to function optimally with great energy, vitality, and mental clarity.

Symptoms are NOT normal; they are your body’s cry for help

Your body gives you symptoms for a reason; it is telling you it is overwhelmed.  Removing the source of overwhelm allows your body’s healing abilities to engage, eliminating the need for drugs.

Temporary relief from drugs is NOT the answer when complete healing is available to you.

Our Functional Medicine team pursues relentlessly the underlying cause of your symptoms, and provides the targeted, personalized help you need to restore your well-being. We have decades of diagnostic and treatment experience which, combined with the use of standard and specialized laboratory tests, allows us to design a treatment program tailored to your needs.

Your body is designed to function with great energy, vitality, and mental clarity. With proper assistance, your body has an incredible ability to heal.
