Functional Medicine is the medical practice or treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs. It is the future of conventional medicine - but available now through Bliss Medicine. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms. “You don’t have to have a disease to benefit from functional medicine.”

    Here lies the clear distinction and definition of Functional Medicine. Instead of asking, “What drug matches up with this disease?” Functional Medicine asks the vital questions that very few conventional doctors ask: “Why do you have this problem in the first place?” and “Why has function been lost?” and “What can we do to restore function?”

    Food sensitivities, vitamin deficiencies, toxins, hormone imbalances, any many other causes can all interrupt your overall well-being. When you work with Dr. Anand Thakkar and his team, you’ll have investigative and experienced partners who will help you get to the root of your symptoms. Through his functional health and wellness approach, learn why you’re tired or exhausted, why your stomach doesn’t feel right, you can’t lose weight, and your labs all “normal” but you still don’t feel your best. We can help.


    As a new interest of health and wellness practitioners, functional medicine is a broad-ranging term with the overall goal of improving or restoring functional sexual, physical, and cognitive abilities to patients.

    Aging is a natural process that results in physiological changes, some of which are unwanted. Disability or disease can also compromise function. Anything that diminishes the individual’s ability to move and interact with the world is an area of concern for functional medicine.

    Getting older is not just a matter of having difficulty moving, dealing with pain or having problems in the bedroom. Functional medicine for men’s health can also help men avoid serious health problems such as heart disease and prostate cancer, giving them a better shot at living healthy lives and a better long-term prognosis.


    Allergies often heat up in the summer, when allergens such as grass, mold and ragweed pollen bring on symptoms like watery eyes and sneezing. Outdoor picnics and activities can pose more serious dangers for people who are allergic to certain foods or stinging insects.

    It may seem that discovering what you are allergic to is a guessing game. However, testing performed by an expert can diagnose what does and what does not trigger your symptoms. For example, you don’t have to get rid of your cat if it is actually mold that is causing your itchy eyes and throat.

    Once you know exactly what you are allergic to, you and your doctor will be able to develop a treatment plan to reduce or eliminate your allergy symptoms.


    The general practitioner is a doctor who provides personal, primary and continuing medical care to individuals and families. His diagnoses will be composed in physical, psychological and social terms. He will intervene educationally, preventively and therapeutically to promote his patient’s health.

    It is therefore our responsibility to provide appropriate education for patients and their family members and significant others regarding their disease or illness and the skills or behaviors needed to promote recovery and improve function and self-care.

    We will care for you when you are sick and when you are well.
