Why The Functional Perspective?

Too often, people think of “wellness” as something temporary, or worse, unobtainable. Their work with doctors ends up taking short-term steps to improve their life… and “wellness”… but often fall back to their less healthy routines once they are left to fend for themselves and rely on symptom management protocols designed for the masses. After seeing this happen with her own son, Salena Rothenberger, D.PSc, CHC, CFMP wanted to provide an opportunity which not only helped others to improve their gastrointestinal health, autoimmune disease, and overall wellness, but also give them the tools to continue their progress “infinitely”, long after they completed their program.

What Makes Us Different Than Other Health Clinics?

The Functional Perspective was founded with the mindset of revolutionizing the approach to resolving chonic health issues such as: auto-immune diseases, gastrointestinal disorders and hormone imbalances.
