Why I believe in applying the principles of functional medicine

Because I believe it is right
Because I believe in honoring the inborn potential of everyone to be truly healthy
Because I believe in helping those without hope
Because I believe in caring for the patient with the disease, not the disease
Because I believe in assisting rather than intruding, in freeing rather than controlling
Because I believe in correcting the cause, not its effect
Because I believe doctors don’t heal the body, only the body heals itself
Because I believe I have been called to serve others
Because I believe I can make a difference
Because every day I get to witness miracles
