Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

"The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes"

Struggling With Chronic Migraines & Not Sure Where To Turn Next?
Cleveland, OH Migraines

Migraine headaches are becoming more and more common. Every week we see patients for migraines, and the typical treatment is prescription medications. After the MRI, CT scan etc all come back "normal", and you don't have the worst of the worst, then it's a medication covering up the symptom. 

The big question is this...

Did previous doctors DIG to look for the root cause? 

We are Dr. Daniel Duffy and Dr. Deborah Johnson, and for over 25 years we've been helping patients all across Northeast Ohio. What we do is different! What makes us unique is that we approach things from a natural perspective. Chances are that your migraines are not an Imitrex deficiency.

In meeting with new patients all throughout the week...this is what I hear...
  • "These headaches make me feel like my head is going to explode!"
  • "My eyes hurt so bad I have to lay down!"
  • "I can't stand bright lights or loud noises...I just need a dark quiet room."
  •  "I feel like my head is in a vice."
Don't Waste Another Day Feeling Lousy!
Common Migraine Symptoms
These are the most common symptoms associated with a migraine: 
  • Head Pain
  •  Sensitivity To Light
  •  Sensitivity To Sound
  •  Difficult Concentrating
  •  Sensitivity To Smell
  •  Fatigue 
  •  Neck Pain 
  •  Brain Fog
  •  Stick Neck 
  •  Moderate / Severe Nausea 
  •  Dizzyness
  •  Eye Pain
What's The Solution?
We take an in depth look at patients from a "wholistic" perspective. We'll do a thorough health history to determine what you've tried in the past...what's working, what's not working etc. We need to know what tests you've done in the past (i.e. MRI, Xrays etc.). 

But please understand, we approach patients from a NATURAL perspective. We're not going to simply throw another medication your way. 

We'll look at diet and do specific food testing. 

We'll looking at nutrient status and look for any underlying deficiencies. 

We may look into doing a cellular detox to de-flame your body. 

Below Is A Sample Food Testing Report!
We Don't Guess...We TEST!
We'll look at foods & determine what foods you should NOT be eating. We know that migraines can have an underlying INFLAMMATORY root cause (i.e. too much inflammation). We also know that eating the wrong foods over an extended period of time can spike inflammation in the body. 
What About Nutrients?
Another important aspect of what we do is that we test for nutrient deficiencies as well. Nutrient deficiencies are epidemic in the U.S. Everything from Vitamin D (lack of sunlight) to B-Vitamins (too much stress). In addition to testing how you react to foods, we also test to determine if you have any nutrient deficiencies.

Watch this now...

Did you know that roughly 40% of the U.S. is gluten intolerant? 

We will let you know if you are via the food testing, however, if you ARE one of the 40% who is gluten intolerant, guess what happens? The gluten destroys your small intestine.
The gluten (i.e. GLUE) is like sandpaper coming through your digestive system and it literally carves off the villi in your small intestine! 

Your small intestine is where you ABSORB MOST OF YOUR NUTRIENTS! Then what happens is you become nutrient deficient. And the research shows that it's the DEFICIENCIES that can lead to over 200 different conditions. 

Digestive Challenges - MIGRAINES - Chronic Fatigue - Autoimmune Conditions - Hormone Problems - ADHD - Infertility 

ALL linking back to GLUTEN! 👎
Sensitivities Deficiencies Toxicities
This is our focus & our starting point to find & FIX the underlying root cause!

You Have Questions...We Have Answers!
Q: Is Your Treatment Safe?
ABSOLUTELY! It is an extremely healthy protocol. We wouldn't offer something that was harmful. We are a natural clinic but again, a lot of our protocols stem from the initial testing we do. Therefore each and every patient is different and has a unique protocol to them. 
Q: Does Insurance Pay For Your Treatment?
Unfortunately no insurance company pays for functional medicine type services. You CAN use HSA or flex dollars if you have that available but our testing & corresponding protocols are not billable to insurance. 
Q: Will I Have To Swallow A Lot Of Pills? 
This will determine on your testing. Some people need more, some people need less, it simply depends on your lab work and what you NEED to be on. 
Q: Do I Have To Keep Coming Back To Your Clinic?
We do like to see patients at least once a month for follow up visits. Our goal is to help you ELIMINATE migraines once and for all. So we'd like you to check in and let us know of your progress. Sometimes we need to make changes to the protocol and dig a little deeper etc. The reason why we have such a high success rate is we keep digging IF we need to. There is a REASON why you have migraines and our job is to find it and fix it.
