As a doctor practicing Functional Medicine, Dr. 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.

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 Functional 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.”

Dr. Flory has committed the last 18 years of his life to identifying and implementing natural methods, nutritional remedies and lifestyle modifications that offer safe, effective and clinically-proven ways of regaining health, function and quality of life. Dr. Flory has created in The Functional Health Team to assist you in your healing journey!
