The Pillars of Dr. Krystosik’s Functional Medicine Approach

Patient-Doctor Partnership

A visit with Dr. Krystosik starts off by developing a healthy doctor patient relationship—a therapeutic partnership between the doctor and the patient. By listening to each patient’s story, drawn from a time-line of their health history, Dr. Krystosik then creates a personalized treatment plan addressing each patient’s unique needs. Patients are encouraged to take an active role in their health care by asking questions, learning how the body functions to heal itself and embracing lifestyle changes. The doctor’s role is to educate, investigate, guide, direct, encourage and protect the patient’s well-being.

Common Sense, Science and Nature Intersect

The foundation of Dr. Krystosik’s healthcare is based on three important core principles; common sense, science and cooperation with nature. Dr. Krystosik looks upstream to identify the cause of ill- ness, instead of merely treating symptoms. Rather than guess, Dr. Krystosik tests the weakest body systems with functional medicine tests. Next, he identifies imbalances in the body systems, and a strategy to restore their integrity. After he interprets the test results, Dr. Krystosik provides the patient with a GPS system—and the best treatment options to help guide them through the maze of illness and back to optimal health.

The Body Heals Itself

Dr. Krystosik relies on what the ancient Greeks referred to as “Vis Medicatrex Naturae,” (the healing power of nature). He cooperates with nature to restore his patients back to health with nutrition, a personalized diet, herbs, vitamins, minerals, detox programs, exercise and stress-management tools. Dr. Krystosik’s ultimate goal is to help his patient become independently healthy and able to enjoy a healthy, drug free, long life—relying on their “doctor within.” Dr. Krystosik’s patient cen-tered approach allows each person to be in control of their health and wellness.

Just a Few Of Many Patient Testimonials

After consulting with Dr. Krystosik and going over my test results, I have renewed hope I will regain a normal, healthy body.

Susan R.

Dr. Krystosik understands how all the systems of the body work together as a whole. I don’t feel like I’m in a conventional doctor’s office where each part is treated separately.

Melony H.

Dr. Krystosik spent an hour with me, listening, taking notes, and urging me to ask questions and to take notes as well. He’s the first doctor who told me he wants to figure out the cause of my illness rather than just writing another prescription.

Debbie K.

I had a very pleasant experience at Dr. Krystosik’s office. The view at the office is unusually beautiful. The 20 acre lake, the Canadian geese, and the warm and friendly care Dr. Krystosik and his staff provided was refreshing. Dr. Krystosik spent a considerable amount of time getting to know me, the root cause of my health problems and my health goals. It’s encouraging to find a doctor that is not just treating my symptoms!

Mary L.

Telling my story with all the details was a big revelation to me. Dr. Krystosik used my story and my health issues to figure out a game plan that made me feel confident his treatment plan was going to work.

Joeseph D.

I just had my initial consultation with Dr. Krystosik and am very pleased. He spent over an hour with me talking and questioning me about my history and explaining the underlying cause of my illness. No other doctor has done that. I felt that he really listened and analyzed everything I was saying. Dr. Krystosik is not your average doctor.
