Functional Medicine Solutions for Carthage Residents

We utilize functional medicine solutions as a proactive, holistic, and natural approach to preventing and minimizing pain.

Known for her intuitive investigative skills, Salena Rothenberger, DPSc, CFMP, CHC, and her team combine functional health and wellness with natural medicine methods to obtain optimal health. Their unique approach to discovering imbalances and investigating health recognizes that a life full of vitality depends on resolving the root causes of dis-ease.

Our functional medicine solutions open the door to better health by tapping into the body’s innate healing system plus the five pillars of exceptional long-term health and vitality. Conventional medical doctors or general practitioners focus on managing the disease and suppressing the symptoms by relying almost exclusively on pharmaceuticals and surgery.

Stop Guessing!

Demystify Your Health, It's Much Easier Than You Think!

  • Proactive: focuses on resolving root causes of illness
  • Restorative: restores proper function of the body
  • Individual centered: treats & modifies strategies for each person
  • Unlimited options: combines the best of conventional & natural medicine
  • Evidence-based: on the latest research & clinical observation

Health & Vitality in Carthage

We help Carthage residents tap into the natural healing system using strategies that effectively support the body’s innate ability to heal and restore health.

In addition to utilizing strategies that support the core body functions, Salena Rothenberger and her team teach the five pillars of healthy living that, when properly managed, can lead to long-term health and provide relief for a wide variety of chronic ailments with natural healing methods:

  • Environment thru harmonious relationships & a peaceful atmosphere
  • Diet: ensure your body has high-quality fuel
  • Activity level: a plan to support restoration, rejuvenation & vitality
  • Sleeping Habits: get quality rest every night
  • Managing stress: reduce stress levels because stress kills
