in his Topanga Canyon clinic. Functional Medicine
is a health care philosophy that gives a unique understanding of the
many complex inter-relationships within the miracle of the human body. These
connections explain why, for example, a simple digestive disorder, when
improperly treated, can lead to something like arthritis. With the
philosophy and practical tools provided by Functional Medicine, Dr. Grossman can help

can be helped with proper care).
- The emotional/energetic background from gestation and early childhood (can
be healed with energetic medicine.
- Quality and type of diet (easy to change with the
right tools and some determination).
- Foundation Nutrition. Is there a sufficient
quantity and quality of macro and micro-nutrients
- The external environment (more difficult to change, but can be manipulated
with the right tools)
- Oxidative Stress
- The ability and health of the digestive process
(vastly more important for many aspects of health than you might think)
- The ability of your liver to detoxify
- A persons energetic balance (treatable with
acupuncture and other energetic treatments)
- Level of stress and ability to really relax..
- And if course, exercise habits and quality.
