It’s the ordinary things we do on a daily basis that have an extraordinary healing effect.

I believe that we all have the ability to live a healthy and vital life. As a leader in Functional Medicine, I practice what I call Good Medicine; an appropriate blend of cutting-edge, modern medicine with age-old healing techniques from the East so that together we can create your own personal health care plan. My method is simple – remove what is harmful and add what is beneficial. This integrative approach takes into account your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing.

For almost 40 years, I have guided and helped thousands of patients feel healthier, look great, and increase energy and resiliency to better deal with life’s stresses. Passionate about helping others, my mission is to provide trusted guidance and information to make Good Medicine more accessible and attainable to all.

Dr. Jeffrey Bland – Father of Functional Medicine

Dr. Frank Lipman talks with Dr. Jeffrey Bland, an internationally recognized leader in the nutritional medicine field for over 35 years and the father of functional medicine. Dr. Lipman deems Jeffery Bland as the person who has brought the most change to how we practice medicine today. Dr. Bland was also the instigator of an ah-ha moment Dr. Lipman had in 1988 – by presenting a model (that would become “functional medicine”) of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine that finally made sense. Tune in as they chat about the gut, autoimmunity, the microbiome and much more.
