What is Functional Medicine?
The Institute for Functional Medicine defines functional medicine as “addressing the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.
By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.”

Jeff purchased the Piqua Compounding Pharmacy (now part of the IHC & Pharmacy in Centerville since July 2018) in 2006. The pharmacy is best known for specializing in HBT (Hormone Balancing Therapy) for both men and women and has thousands of success stories. Over the past three years, Jeff has invested over $300,000 in renovations to the lab including new automation software and bar code scanning to improve both accuracy and efficiency.
In 2012, the pharmacy was the first compounding lab in the world to utilize the Resodyn acoustic mixer in the preparation of compounds. Notably, this mixer improves the accuracy 30-50 times over traditional compounding methods as well as significantly speeding up the compounding process. Our state-of-the-art compounding facility and staff rivals any compounding pharmacy in the Country. Additionally, Suzanne Sommer’s frequently mentions us in her books as the compounding pharmacy of choice in Ohio.
Jeff began his BioMale Center (now known as IHC for Men) in the spring of 2015 to help men feel their best and ultimately prevent disease. Jeff focuses on reducing cardiac risk through lifestyle changes, proper supplementation, and reducing inflammation. Generally, we recommend Testosterone as needed, after reviewing innovative lab panels.
