Brian Lum is an integrative and functional medicine specialist. He is licensed and board-certified as a Doctor of Chiropractic. His post-graduate training includes diagnosis, preventative medicine, and nutritional medicine, as part of the Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internist program (DABCI). He is also trained in functional medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM).
His passion for chronic disease began as he witnessed his mother’s 15 year struggle with Crohn’s disease. This debilitating illness often caused her to be bed-ridden, and experience chronic abdominal pain and digestive problems. She was told that her condition was life-long with no hope of improvement. At the time there were no options for effective treatment, except symptom management. Times have changed and the vast amount of medical research has given us hope for successful outcomes. Dr. Lum is determined to implement research into treatment strategies that address the underlying causes of disease so that the whole person may be healed.
