ABOUT

“Drugless Functional Medicine is defined as returning normal, expected functionality back to the human organism by reestablishing natural human biochemistry. We do not attempt to circumvent or ‘bypass’ natural chemistry with a pharmaceutical approach, but rather reintroduce those chemicals (nutrients) that are missing or lacking, while removing those things that obstruct natural biochemical pathways.”

“No Healing Can Happen In The Presence of Deficiency”

“We are 100% drug and Cannabis free”

ABOUT THE DOCTOR:


Since 2002, Dr Michael Joseph has worked with 1000s of patients with health concerns like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, interstitial cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome, skin problems, anxiety, depression, cancer, eye health, emotional eating, and food allergies. Dr Joseph has a dynamic skill set that covers all of the aspects of nutrition, from food to emotional eating to supplementation and beyond. He understands “Bio-Chemical Individuality”, which means that everyone is biologically unique with unique, individual nutritional needs. He focuses a great deal on nutrient deficiencies and gut flora integrity, using his vast knowledge of human nutritional biochemistry to aid patients in healing their bodies by using the right nutrients in the right amounts at the right times. He is skilled at digestive repair and understands the benefit and use of probiotic repopulation therapy for common GI conditions, including Candida overgrowth and chronic constipation. Dr Joseph is an authority on food allergies and intolerance and he recognizes the impact that food allergies have on each person’s health. He is an expert in the transition to a non-allergic lifestyle and allergy-free cooking. He also has a deep understanding of both men’s and women’s health, and works exceptionally well with each to achieve their health goals. Dr Michael merges Functional, Orthomolecular, and Natural Medicine concepts to create a comprehensive, drugless approach that is rivalled by few in the health care world. By re-establishing natural, normal human biochemistry, he is able to help patients reach peak health without the use of drugs. His Deficiency-based medicine methodology is a new take on the tried-and-true Orthomolecular Medicine methods of the likes of Pauling, Hoffer, and Klenner.

Functional Microbiology


“Dr Joseph has done extensive work with what he calls Functional Microbiology, which is an approach to microbiology that focuses on understanding how and why microbes interact with one another and their environment. The purpose of Functional Microbiology is to return the natural function of the internal ecosystem of the host and bring it back to a balanced state. By returning the organisms that are missing and controlling renegade and rogue overgrowths, Functional Microbiology can help to reestablish one’s natural microbiome and achieve a vastly improved health status. With his extensive knowledge of probiotics and how they behave, Dr Joseph is able to apply Functional Microbiology concepts to anyone with any health condition with excellent results.”

What is “Functional Microbiology”?

Functional Microbiology is an approach to microbiology that focuses on understanding how and why microbes interact with one another and their environment. The purpose of Functional Microbiology is to return the natural function of the internal ecosystem of the host and bring it back to a balanced state. By returning the organisms that are missing and controlling renegade and rogue overgrowths, Functional Microbiology can help to reestablish one’s natural microbiome and achieve a vastly improved health status. This methodology utilizes the principles from both germ and terrain theories for a more comprehensive perspective on how and why microbial overgrowth happens.

What is “Drugless Functional Medicine”?

Drugless Functional Medicine is an approach to health care that aims to restore normal functionality back to the human organism by reestablishing natural human biochemistry, without the use of drugs or substances alien to human chemistry. Adverse health conditions are really forms of malfunction of the human organism. These malfunctions are, in turn, the result of deficiency, whether it be an essential nutrient or other biomolecule essential to human chemistry. Adverse health conditions are not the result of “drug deficiency”. Granted, certain drugs may be needed for some acute or life threatening situations, and we understand that. But that is not what we do here. We focus on the long term healing of the human organism and the only way to do that is to restore functionality by quelling deficiencies of vital chemicals of life.

What is “Deficiency-based Medicine”?

Deficiency-based Medicine, or DBM for short, is the methodology of focusing on and correcting biochemical deficiencies in the human host that would cause biological malfunction. It is based on three principles researched, engineered, and created by Dr Joseph:

1) Find the Deficiency First
2) The Cure Denotes the Cause
and 3) No Healing Can Happen in the Presence of Deficiency

These principles are guide stones in the foundation of Drugless Functional Medicine. By focusing on what is missing, we are able to achieve true healing of human tissue, and in turn, improvement to one’s overall life experience.
