Functional medicine is a different approach to managing health and wellness. Functional medicine works by assessing many factors that can affect a person’s health and addressing each individual’s unique circumstances to achieve optimal wellness.

Functional medicine is a holistic approach that sees the entire person, lifestyle, and life stress factors as part of the medical picture. Multiple medical practitioners work together to find the source of a patient’s illness and craft a wellness plan that can help a person’s overall health.

What You Need to Know About Functional Medicine

  • This type of medical practice evaluates the patient’s unique genetics, biochemical makeup, lifestyle, and environmental factors—like toxic exposures. A functional medical doctor takes the time to talk to the patient, rather than rushing into the examination room in a whirlwind (like many traditional medicine doctors) and leaving before the patient gets a chance to ask questions.

  • Functional medicine uses an integrative methodology that centers on the individual’s cellular physiology, biochemistry, and genetics. The restoration of health through regenerative medicine focuses on therapies like these:

  • Functional Medicine

  • Physiotherapy

  • Chiropractic medicine

  • Stem cell injections

  • IV infusion therapy

  • Vitamin/mineral injections

  • PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

  • Chelation Therapy

  • The anti-aging aspect uses advanced hormone replacement therapy, as well as nutrition and lifestyle modifications.


At Anti-Aging and Associates, we believe in a holistic approach to healthcare that addresses the root causes of illness and promotes optimal wellness. Our functional medicine program is designed to uncover the underlying imbalances in the body and provide personalized treatment plans tailored to each individual's unique needs.

This comprehensive approach allows us to identify underlying issues that may be contributing to your symptoms.

  3. Lifestyle Modifications: In addition to addressing medical concerns, we focus on empowering you to make positive lifestyle changes that support long-term health and vitality. This may include recommendations for nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep optimization, and other lifestyle factors.

  4. Integrative Therapies: Our functional medicine approach incorporates a range of evidence-based therapies, including dietary supplements, botanical medicine, acupuncture, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy, and other integrative modalities to support your body's natural healing mechanisms.

  5. Collaborative Care: We believe in a collaborative approach to healthcare, working closely with other healthcare providers and specialists as needed to ensure comprehensive and coordinated care for our patients.

After open heart surgery in 2020 I decided to seek out a new doctor who was knowledgeable and could help me monitor all my risk factors. moving forward.
Dr Schortel is absolutely the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever met and gives me advise on supplements I need to avoid issues and keep my blood work where it needs to be. The regular blood tests he orders are the most extensive I have ever had and he tests for more than just the regular things that other doctors do. I am very happy with the service and patient care and would highly recommend anti aging and regenerative associates to anyone serious about their health
