As in the video above, Dr. Steven Wasserman, RN, DC, CFMP (Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner) practice goal is to promotes functional wellness care and incorporates a "3 STEP WELLNESS STRATEGY." This strategy focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of an underlining systems dysfunction or illness and one that restores balance in the body's primary physiological processes. Dr. Steven will guide you, not only to get well, but to stay well, live in optimal wellness, and understand importance of prevention...

3. All Systems are interconnected to all other systems and that dis-ease is simply a malfunction in or between the different body systems. (Thank you Functional Medicine University for the guidance into Functional Medicine and the Mindmap model of interrelations of systems and treatment option strategies!)
