Neurologic disease or dysfunction does not start or end in the brain. Whether the concern is Autism Spectrum, ADHD or Alzheimer’s, achieving Neurologic Health requires a healthy system. The brain cannot function well in an inflamed, toxic, metabolically deranged environment. At Functional Medicine Specialists, we focus on evaluating our patient’s overall system and create specific plans to remedy any imbalances. There are very effective customizable ways to optimize your individual genetic expression and create the chemistry necessary for improved brain health.​

Scary Facts:

* Over 250,000 people die every year from "Medical Errors"
* Medical Errors is the 3rd leading cause of death in America

Do you trust the recommendations from your doctors and specialists?
Have they completely analyzed your medical history to make the best decision for you?

Once Upon a Time

People had family doctors. The family doctor was someone who knew you well, and who helped you make choices through illness and old age. They were aware of your medical history and often that of your family. They were our medical quarterbacks if outside specialists were needed.

Not so Anymore

Now we have specialist clinics, huge hospitals, and 60-page insurance policies. You need a PhD to read your billing statement. Getting an actual human being on the phone can eat up hours of your day.

Cambria and Mike helped me overcome a bad stomach issue, which was hindering my basic daily responsibilities and activities for almost a full year. I was nervous I'd be stuck on a prescription for the rest of my life but Cambria and Mike set out to find the root of my problem rather than putting a band-aid on the issue with a prescription.

After many tests, we were able to unveil the cause of my issue and I was able to focus on healing as I was no longer blind to what was causing me to feel unhealthy. Cambria and Mike do a great job in balancing holistic medicine with conventional medicine as I believe both are equally beneficial and have their time and place.

Thank you to Cambria and Mike for helping with getting me back to a healthy state to where I can finally get the most out of life again!

Illness in and of itself is exhausting, made all the more tiring by trying to find the right doctor. Just anyone is never ok, but if you’ve had cancer, as I have, or heart disease as my partner has, the right fit is crucial. Beyond all the important and necessary credentials, you want someone who you feel is partnering with you on your path of health, who can give you insight, informed support and most importantly, a road to prevention.

Cambria Demarco is what they call a godsend. The one you recommend to friends with a kind of of awe, “I found a good one.” She is all that I mentioned above and more. As a cancer survivor twice over, I have seen my share of doctors and I know when I get the right fit. Dependable, wise and intelligent, my experience of Cambria is what one would hope all of health care might one day be – personal and in-depth.

When I learned that Cambria was no longer at the office where I had been seeing her, I immediately set out to become a patient wherever she would now be practicing. I have a number of friends who are planning to do the same. I have no doubt that wherever she ends up, Cambria will have a following and will certainly be an asset to her clients.

With all my best,
