Dr. Daniel Falor, D.C.

Dr. Wood

Dr. Daniel Falor is a Doctor of Chiropractic, has a Master's Degree in Clinical Nutrition and Herbal Medicine, and specializes in Functional Endocrinology. His areas of expertise include metabolic disorders, such as obesity, Type II Diabetes, Hypo-Thyroid and Metabolic Syndrome.

What Is Functional Endocrinology?
Functional Endocrinology is a specialized segment of Functional Medicine. The term “endocrinology” in its classic definition means the study of the endocrine system, which is the body's hormone system. Where the "traditional" endocrinologist focuses on hormone replacement, surgery, and medications, Functional Endocrinology uses the body's normal response to dietary modifications, nutritional supplementation and exercise in order to balance hormone activity.

How Is Functional Medicine Different?
Functional Medicine looks at people as a whole system, as opposed to individual areas looked at separately. Using advanced diagnostic testing; blood work, urine, and saliva among others, Dr. Falor can identify the underlying cause of a patient’s health problem. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just a set of symptoms.

This is a revolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.

It has been said “Your Health Is Your Greatest Wealth”. Getting your body to achieve normal FUNCTION will have a dramatic impact on how you look as well as how you feel. Dr. Falor's patients report that they find renewed energy, loss of weight, improved biological function, and an overall better outlook by simply feeling better.
