Published by: janean strong on 08-20-2017

Understanding how toxins play a role in the development of chronic conditions.
Pharmaceuticals do not heal, they can address symptoms but your bodies immune system heals you... you can support the innate wisdom of your body to heal itself.

This is part 1 of a 3 part series on understanding the dynamics of chronic conditions.

As a doctor practicing Functional Medicine, Dr. Matthew Flory’s specialty is treating inflammation and sustained chronic inflammation-related conditions. He’s dedicated the remainder of his days to this endeavor due to the fact he’s “Been there … done that.” Dr. Flory is very candid about this fact and as you get to know him you’ll undoubtedly hear about his fight with Hashimoto’s Auto-Immune Hypothyroidism, Depression, Liver Dysfunction, Severe Toxicity, Reactive Hypoglycemia, Chronic Fatigue … all of this resulting from hidden infections, such as Candida.
In fact, his Candida infection was worse than any other client he has personally ever tested, and that’s hundreds, if not thousands, of people. He is now very happy to share a story of encouragement and empowerment when supporting his clients, as his fatigue, depression, anxiety, allergies, routine “sickness”, auto-immunity and thyroid symptoms are now resolved. He admits being sick sucked and was very hard on his personal energy, emotions and beliefs about himself … as much or more than his physical body. That is why, as the founder and architect of Functional Health Team, he is breaking new ground for you in the field of medicine. In developing the philosophy and mission and assembling the step-by-step progressive programs, he has included cutting edge support systems for your physical, chemical, financial and emotional Return to Health.
Inflammation is associated with and sometimes results in conditions such as Auto-Immune Disorders (and other Immune dysfunction), Thyroid dysfunction, Cardiovascular & Kidney Disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Diabetes, Neurologic symptoms (Vertigo, Pain, Numbness/Tingling), Bowel and GI dysfunction, Chronic Illness, Sinus Infection and Allergies, Neurotransmitter imbalances with related anxiety and depression symptoms. These are merely a few of the people he can assist. Functional Medicine’s unique philosophy and holistic methods allows Dr. Flory to become the ‘health-detective’ you might wish your family doctor could be. The Institute for Functional Medicine on their webpage defines Funcitonal Medicine as,
“Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.” -
