Our full intent and our passion that drives us is to genuinely help people to reclaim the lives they once loved by uncovering the root cause of their symptoms and teach them how to modify their lifestyle.

Functional Medicine Institute is opening practice July 2, 2018 in the Chicago suburb of Wheaton, IL to provide an in demand program with an intense focus on a whole-body clinical model that offers treatment for those suffering from type 2 diabetes and hypothyroidism, two conditions that plague the lives of millions of Americans today - a statistic that has reached epidemic proportions.

As part of the specialized focus on hypothyroidism and type 2 diabetes treatment, Functional Medicine Institute will host a series of condition-specific events, allowing individuals affected by these chronic and debilitating conditions to meet with Dr. Helwig and explore comprehensive, whole-body treatment options that extend far beyond what prescription medication therapy alone can provide. These events have the potential to completely transform the health of the communities in and surrounding Chicago, restoring a lost sense of hope that has been perpetuated by the mainstream approach to treatment. The events are expected to receive a rapid response, and anyone interested in attending is encouraged to register as soon as registration is made available.

“These chronic conditions are preventing thousands of people from living the life they deserve. Most people that I’ve treated in the past come to my office when they are at the end of their rope, skeptical but willing to give anything a shot as they’ve been led to believe that all hope is lost and they’ll never be able to restore life as it once was,” comments Dr. Gerald Helwig, DC of Functional Medicine Institute. “Our full intent and our passion that drives us is to genuinely help people to reclaim the lives they once loved by uncovering the root cause of their symptoms and teach them how to modify their lifestyle so that they can grow into active participants throughout their individual healing journey.”

Functional Medicine Institute is a health care clinic, opening July 2, 2018, led by Dr. Gerald Helwig, DC, a practitioner who has extensive training and experience in functional medicine and clinical nutrition.

Contrary to a solely traditional mainstream medicine, Dr, Helwig seeks to support patients by uncovering the unique root cause of their disease process so that they can be supported and treated using a customized treatment program that targets the unique triggers that are contributing to their poor and declining health.
