(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 24, 2015 ) Folsom, CA -- Functional Medicine University has awarded a graduation certificate to Dr. James Barger, signifying his completion of a rigorous course of study in a new science-based system of holistic diagnosis and treatment. Functional Medicine is especially helpful for patients suffering from chronic conditions or symptoms that have baffled a succession of doctors. Dr. Barger continues to treat patients at his Folsom office, specializing in typical head, neck and back pain complaints, as well as certain lifestyle disorders
"The Standard American Diet (SAD) of coffee and donuts for breakfast, a salt and fat saturated hamburger with french fried potatoes for lunch and as much comfort food as one can eat for dinner is a prescription for heart disease and diabetes" says Dr. Jim Barger. "Through the use of a comprehensive functional nutrition questionnaire and history, as well as in-depth review of medical history, a plan of action can be formulated to bring back the health and vitality of people willing to make the necessary changes."
The Functional Medicine University curriculum includes coursework on blood chemistry, advanced diagnostic tests, gastrointestinal dysfunctions, immune imbalances, metabolic problems, inflammation, detoxification, hormone dysregulation, psychological functioning, biomechanical difficulties and more. Functional medicine practitioners hunt for the causes underlying a person's symptoms, and then recommends scientifically sound natural treatments that return the individual to optimum functional health.
"It is like being a medical detective, searching for clues left in my patient's previous and current medical files. Up to this time, I have consulted with my patient's primary care doctors whenever appropriate on their neck and back pain complaints" adds Folsom Chiropractor James Barger, "and now I look forward to teaming up with them to hopefully help solve some of their difficult medical cases."
The new Functional Medicine credential builds on Dr. Jim Barger's previous degree in Chiropractic Medicine from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, now known as Southern California University of Health Sciences. Dr. Barger has been seeing patients in Folsom since 1995.
