Functional Medicine Calgary

Functional, Anti-Aging & Regenerative Medicine

Functional medicine seeks to determine the underlying causes of chronic disease, through extensive history taking, examination and lab testing, rather than the palliative treatment of symptoms with medications or herbal products.
Functional Medicine is a scientific- evidence based method of understanding how the web-like, interlocking relationships between genetics, environmental toxicity, nutrition and stress influence the core physiological pathways of our body. These pathways include the gut, immune system, liver detoxification, hormones, neurotransmitters, structural and energy pathways of the body.

Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia Calgary

Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia

Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia are not diseases. They are conditions of being. Multiple stressors (food sensitivities, nutrient depletions, toxins, infections, inflammation, sleep deprivation, lack of exercise, early developmental trauma amongst others) affect the normal homeostatic mechanisms in the body (gut function, immune system, hormones, neurotransmitters, detoxification), leading to decompensation of multiple systems in the body/mind complex. An extensive history taking with time-line stressors needs to be taken, along with extensive laboratory testing. There are no easy short cuts or treatment options.

Autism, Asperger's & ADHD Calgary

Autism, Asperger's & ADHD

Autism is a systemic multisystem disorder that affects the brain. It has been established that certain environmental agents trigger inflammatory signals in the bowel and the brain, resulting in neuroexcitation and neuroinflammation. Approaches to diagnosis involve multiple functional medicine tests to determine underlying causation and the effect of these agents on core physiological pathways. Treatment aims to lower the toxic burden through detoxification, restore nutrient deficiencies, reduce free radical burden, down regulate inflammatory pathways, treat infections and hence down regulate neuroinflammation.

Cancer Treatment Calgary

Cancer

It is important to create the distinction between what services complementary cancer care can provide, versus that of traditional oncology. Traditional cancer care focuses on the characteristics, histopathology and grading of the cancer cells and provides therapeutic inputs to eradicate the cancer cells through surgery, radiation or chemotherapy. A holistic or integrative model focuses on the terrain, milieu or metabolic environment in the body of the patient and its interaction with the cancer cells. The therapies chosen are to boost the innate host resistance and modulate the terrain so as to remove metabolic factors that favour tumour proliferation, progression, angiogenesis or metastasis. This is referred to as the Oncometabolic Milieu. A true integrative approach, providing the best advantage for the patient, combines evidence based strategies from both models.

Cancer Treatment Calgary

Family Constellation

In its simplest terms, the Systemic Family Constellation approach views people as being embedded in, and influenced by larger systems, including but not limited to the family. An unconscious love and loyalty to our family system can cause us to unwittingly carry on the fate, secret agonies, and unresolved traumas of previous generations. These issues can remain energetically present and entangle us, our children, and our grandchildren, until the issue is cleared. This is at the root of many of our current, resistant-to-change issues and is the profound contribution of this model.

Welcome to The Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicine

Searching for unique solutions for complex health problems?

Dr. Bruce Hoffman - Calgary Integrative Medicine The Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicine can provide the steps required to achieve your personal health transformation.

Many of us live with chronic symptoms, pain, illness, or disease. Finding an integrative medical program that offers an approach to the complexity of the multiple causative factors is often challenging, confusing or out of reach.

In addition, many people are concerned their health may not be optimal but have no means of assessing that possibility. Their desire may be to measure their biochemical imbalances or risk factors and address them before they manifest as a disease process.

If you are living with any chronic symptom or disease, or if you wish to optimize the health that you already have, The Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicine can assist you in achieving your health and wellness goals.

7 Stages to Health and Transformation™

Using Dr. Bruce Hoffman's model, 7 Stages to Health and Transformation™ as the template for diagnosis, Dr. Hoffman will investigate the root causes of symptoms or disease origination, and combine traditional medicine with integrative mind/body and anti-aging modalities for the therapeutic interventions. This unique model gives you customized results, and a hands-on, personal approach.
