FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE
Dr Lisa Ballehr is an Osteopathic Physician and Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner. With over 16 years of experience, her science based approach leads to the evolutionary personalized medicine that works with the patient.
“In essence, functional medicine is a move away from the drug-based model of fighting infectious diseases that worked so well in the 20th century to a systems-oriented, patient-focused model designed to reverse the chronic-disease epidemic. Today’s most prevalent health issues are mostly caused by the interactions between genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental exposures, and treating them requires both understanding these interactions and designing appropriate treatments that are personalized to each individual.”

Our Clients Say
I decided to see Dr. Ballehr after years of mis-diagnosis and pain suffering. The chronic illness I’ve been dealing with has been unbearable, but thanks to the Functional Medicine approach and methodical assessment and treatment of Dr. Ballehr I can honestly say I feel better than I have in years. The nutrition and behavioral changes were detailed out in an easy to understand reasoning with an explanation of the targeted results. Thank you Dr. Ballehr for helping me take control of my life again.
Dr. Ballehr’s expert grasp of the science, genetics, and interrelationship of all body systems has allowed her to make dynamic improvements in my day-to-day overall health after I experienced a flare up of genetic issues. Her ability to listen, without judgment, put me at ease, and allowed us to form a strong partnership. She is tenacious professional and I trust her completely. She has also helped me realign my long-term view and understand that my body can balance itself and maintain good health, despite genetic predispositions. I recommend her wholeheartedly, especially to those who have felt they are not being listened to by the medical community or worse, led to believe it’s all in your head.
Dr. Ballehr clearly communicates the relationship between genetic predisposition, stress, nutritional and environmental factors causing my autoimmune disease. I appreciate her no-nonsense and step-by-step approach to my treatment. Since implementing her dietary plan, supplements and lifestyle changes, I have not experienced a flare-up, and I feel 100% better. Prior to making these changes, I had not been able to consistently exercise, manage house hold chores or work due to pain. I am now participating in 3-4x/weekly yoga, and 2x/weekly weight training and I am keeping up with 3 dogs, 2 kids, and a live-in MIL with Alzheimer’s. My Rheumatologist is shocked by my improved blood work – inflammatory markers are now within normal limits, and he has decreased my medications. For the first time in years I believe that I am able to stop the progression of the joint damage, and will be it into my senior years without being crippled. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Ballehr to anyone suffering from any autoimmune disease.
