Michael Bertonatti is been in practice for ten years helping patients attain optimal health without using conventional medicine. Holistic being what it is, he utilize his background in the areas of nutrition, exercise,  Ayurvedic and Functional remedies. In Functional Medicine, we don’t just manage symptoms using natural products but apply the principles of “systems biology”. In other words , we focus on finding and correcting the underlying cause of imbalances within the system. If there is a problem, downstream we look upstream to find what he refers to as the lowest common denominator.


Working with patients, he will create an algorithm to demonstrate the underlying health issue and where it all commenced. He will then come up with a protocol based on lifestyle modification that includes a variety alternative for the patient. One man’s meat is another man’s poison. That also holds true for personal lifestyle choices and habits.
