About Dr Michael Joseph DFM, DNM, DOM, PHD, Ms

Doctor of Drugless Functional Medicine
PhD Orthomolecular Medicine
PhD Natural Medicine
Masters in Clinical Nutrition

“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.”

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 preparation 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 Michael 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.
