What is Functional Medicine?

Traditional medicine focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Once the diagnosis is established, the diagnosis is cross-checked with the list of medications used to treat that particular disorder. Often times, the medications chosen are merely treating symptoms, rather than the root cause of the problem. This is often referred to as the “disease-drug” model. 

The integrative or functional medicine approach focuses on prevention and, when problems present themselves, seeks to find the underlying cause. This approach is relatively simple and consists of identifying those things that might be making you sick and eliminating them, while at the same time replacing any identified deficiencies, be they hormonal or nutritional.

Who We Are.

Sign-up for The Care Group  e-newsletter and receive a free copy of Dr. Guillory's Guide to Optimal Wellness - Getting Started

Dr. Gerard Guillory is a board certified internal medicine specialist who has been practicing in Aurora, Colorado since 1985.  He is a nationally recognized speaker and writer on irritable bowel syndrome.  He strongly believes, as Hippocrates stated some 2000 years ago, that “all disease begins in the gut”.

His clinical focus utilizes a functional/integrative medicine approach which seeks to discover the root cause of the problem.  Unlike the traditional "drug-disease" model which automatically resorts to medication, we attempt to discover why someone is feeling ill and not just the diagnosis.

With each patient a customized evaluation and treatment plan is developed to help achieve optimal wellness.  This approach is patient-centered rather than disease-centered.

Sensitivity to monosodium glutamate and aspartame (abdominal pains, bloating)

For 15 years, Neil Wiese regularly experienced abdominal pains and bloating that lasted all day, nearly every day.

"I went through many, many doctors," Wiese says. "I even went as far as the Mayo Clinic. Nobody could figure out what it was."

In 2004, he attended a seminar by Dr. Guillory and, afterward, went to visit the doctor. After conducting tests and ruling out a number of potential causes, Dr. Guillory focused on the possibility that Wiese's digestive problems were related to monosodium glutamate (MSG), a widely used food additive.

Dr. Guillory recommended that Wiese avoid foods containing MSG. In addition, he recommended that Wiese steer clear of the artificial sweetener aspartame as well as high fructose corn syrup, also used as a sweetener.

"I went on the diet and watched everything I ate," Wiese says. "I also kept a diary. And in the course of a month or so, I was better. I have slowly continued getting better for the last couple of years. My life has changed dramatically. It's a miracle for me."
