If the interior walls in your home were developing fine cracks, would you want to know the reason for the condition, or would you just plasterFunctional Medicine over them? Or, if your car were making an odd noise, would you investigate the cause or just use earplugs? Obviously, in both cases, you'd have an expert look over the entire house or car to determine what was going on. The same applies to your body and your health.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine in Lake Wales looks at you as a whole person, not just a set of symptoms. Dr. Anthony Faro of the Alternative Care Wellness Center seeks to uncover the nutritional deficiencies, imbalances or stressors underlying physical conditions such as irritable bowel, arthritis, ear infections, muscle tension, and of course, subluxations, or misalignments of the spine.

As a chiropractic internist, Dr. Faro applies his extensive training and years of expertise to truly understanding the mind-body connection in each and every one of his patients. He and his team are patient-centered and wellness- centered, not an illness- and symptom-centered. In addition, as a Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internist's, he understands how genetics, food, environment and lifestyle interplay to positively or negatively influence mental, emotional and spiritual well-being and the body's own ability to heal itself.
