We address health problems instead of covering them up.
Welcome to Core Health! We are a functional medicine practice located in St. Louis, MO. Functional medicine is an alternative approach to healthcare. We strive to enrich our patients’ lives by helping them unveil the true causes of their chronic diseases and other health issues, and then helping them reach their optimal health. We do this by digging to find the root of the problems you are experiencing, and not merely treating the symptoms. Using a bandaid approach to your health doesn’t solve your problems, or fix your health issues.
Functional medicine by definition means, “medical practice or treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs, usually involving systems of holistic or alternative medicine.”
In order for a doctor to truly correct your health, they need to understand a multitude of factors that contribute to who you are, and how you reached this place with your health. Spending 10 minutes with a doctor (if you’re lucky), and then the doctor writing a prescription and running to his next patient, isn’t going to solve your health concerns! At Core Health in St. Louis, Dr. Gerlach is committed to the recovery of your health, and that reflects in the time he spends with you. When you first arrive at the office you will be given an extensive Functional Medicine Evaluation to determine what is best for you; you will not be diagnosed with a cookie cutter health issue, written a prescription, and sent off without a glimmer of hope for recovery.
Empowering and Educating
Core Health is committed to empowering and educating people about their health. Through a natural health and functional medicine lens, the cause of health problems are addressed, rather than prescribing medications to cover up symptoms. Through individualized lifestyle programs, our end goal is lifetime health independence for you.
Seeking out help through functional medicine at Core Health in St. Louis, will prove astoundingly invaluable to the rest of your life! Be well!
Core Health is committed to breaking the mold of conventional medicine by finding and fixing root cause ailments for people suffering with chronic disease.
