Abstract (Summary)

Chronic disease plagues nearly 133 million Americans, approximately 45% of the population. Several techniques have arise to address this issue other than traditional medicine and alternative medicine is making substantial strides. With the gaining popularity of functional medicine (a subset), the growing need for alternative methods is apparent, especially in the city of Long Beach, California. Mint Health Functional Medicine Clinic aims to treat the source of chronic diseases within the adult population of Long Beach, rather than simply relieving symptoms. Institute of Functional Medicine board certified physicians will do so through a monthly membership, so patients may have a quality consultation and constant access to their providers and support staff for progress follow-up and questions. The mission is to help eliminate chronic disease incidence within the residents of Long Beach, in a non-traditional way.
