DR. BRIAN LUM, DC, IFMCP

"My passion for healing chronic illness began when I witnessed my mother's 15-year battle with Crohn's disease.   

 

She, like many of my patients, was told that there was nothing she could do to heal. Nothing could have been further from the truth."

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?

Functional medicine addresses the care gap that exists between modern medicine and the individual. Patients frequently suffer due to inadequate testing, too brief appointments, poor diagnostics, and limited treatment options.  

While routine testing by your general practitioner is done in hospitals to detect severe problems or to get a diagnosis - functional medicine testing and interventions are intended to get you out of long term symptoms and get you into an optimal range of function.

Functional medicine testing signals the beginning, not the end, of a proper medical investigation.

 

Even if you do not have a diagnosis, functional medicine is well suited to identify the underlying factors perpetuating symptoms. Knowing the factors contributing to your symptoms is often just as important as a diagnosis because it gives us the direction needed to help your body heal.  

Prevention is also a key feature of functional medicine. Recently, science has confirmed what the medical traditions of the world have already known - that our genetics are merely the blueprint of our biological landscape; we develop that landscape through our thoughts, behaviors, environment, and actions. 

 

We are not on an inevitable march toward disability or degenerative disease; there are hundreds of ways you can change your behavior that can lead to significant overall changes to your health trajectory.

SYMPTOMS AND CONDITIONS

We have experience with a wide range of conditions and symptoms that benefit from the application of functional medicine. 

 

Many of our patients come to us with 'mysterious' or complex symptoms that do not fit neatly into a diagnosis or multiple conditions with limited treatment options.

 

Some have been alarmed to find they have a 'bad' gene that raises their chances of developing a degenerative disease in the future. Others are searching for natural ways to alleviate symptoms and enjoy optimal health for as long as possible without the use of pharmaceuticals. 

Functional medicine can simultaneously work to optimize the health of the individual while conducting a thorough investigation into symptoms and conditions. 

These are a few conditions we see very often.

While many patients are adamant about not using pharmaceuticals because of their potential side effects, it is important to know that poor quality supplementation or supplements in the wrong form or taken at the wrong time can cause significant side effects as well. 

 

This is why any recommendations are carefully chosen from trusted suppliers.  

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS
Rhiannon Customer Review

Rhiannon Birdsall

"Working with him long distance, he's helped introduce herbal and mineral treatments that have been gentle enough to work with my already highly sensitive auto-immune system. I owe much to Dr. Lum and am honestly not sure if I would have survived had I not had his help during my particular health crisis. . ."

Kandi Patient Review

Kandi Steinle

"I can not recommend Dr. Lum enough. He has helped me so much in so many ways. He uses natural treatments to help your body in both healing itself and realignment. He is a most important part of keeping my body and soul together. He is my go to person when I start feeling bad."

"Dr. Lum is awesome! I am a boxer and he has helped me with a number of physical injuries and systemic issues the past 2 years. Recently I've been receiving treatment from him remotely and it has been a game changer."

QIGONG HEALING

Dr. Lum now offers External Qigong Healing.  Qigong is a moving meditation, like yoga and tai chi, but is designed specifically for those facing health challenges.

 

This form of meditation aims to move energy throughout the body through gentle movements and simple visualizations, removing blockages and facilitating healing.  

Learn how this millennia-old practice can help you heal faster and more completely.

SPECIALIZED TESTING

Science moves quickly. We offer revolutionary testing, some of which were unavailable even last year. Testing can be ordered through the mail or arranged at a hospital or a testing location near you. Many tests can be shipped worldwide.

These tests differ from the routine testing you receive at your annual exam. While those tests are important, we can dig deeper to try to discover why you have certain symptoms or have developed a specific condition.  

We do not require you to order testing, nor do we recommend a standard set of testing for every patient.

 

Dr. Lum can also review previous testing you have had during your new patient appointment.

ONLINE FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CONSULTATIONS

Our New Patient appointments are an hour long, during which Dr. Lum will take a detailed medical history and can interpret past testing.  You can ask questions and convey your health goals during this time. 

Follow-up appointments are thirty minutes each, during which treatment plans will be adjusted to optimize your healing trajectory.

 

Functional Medicine follow-up appointments are different from conventional medicine follow-up appointments - which you usually only schedule to confirm that a problem is gone or to get more medication.

 

Functional medicine follow-ups are designed to accommodate your healing trajectory, cycle out treatments you no longer need, and address emerging priorities.  

This is why functional medicine appointments can accommodate those with complicated medical histories and multiple symptoms and conditions.  As you heal, your health priorities will rapidly change as your big symptoms disappear.

LONG COVID RECOVERY

Dr. Lum has extensive experience in helping Long Covid patients recover fully. 

While COVID-19 may be relatively new, 'long' symptoms after a viral or bacterial infection are not.

While the symptoms of Long Covid can be complex and severe in nature - ranging from neurological issues, impaired breathing, metabolic and heart symptoms, scar tissue accumulation, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, brain fog, and histamine intolerance - targeted yet gentle interventions can be very effective.
