Douglas Husbands DC IFMCP CCN Joins Elite Group of IFM Certified Practitioners

November 8, 2018 Federal Way, WA – The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in Functional Medicine, is pleased to announce Dr. Douglas Husbands as an IFM Certified Practitioner.

As an IFM Certified Practitioner of The Institute for Functional Medicine’s Certification Program (IFMCP), Dr. Husbands is uniquely trained in the Functional Medicine model to identify and treat the root causes of chronic disease. In order to achieve the designation of IFM Certified Practitioner, Dr. Husbands has completed seven training seminars and passed stringent written and case study evaluations.

Of total healthcare costs in the United States, more than 75% are due to chronic conditions. The current healthcare system is designed to treat urgent medical problems, also known as “acute” conditions. However, chronic, lifestyle-related diseases cannot be treated successfully using the same approach. What works is an individualized approach to patients—with an emphasis on the ways our environment and lifestyle choices interact with our genes. Functional Medicine is an innovative approach to medical care. It uses the latest medical research to develop personalized care for each patient, based on his or her unique environment, lifestyle, and genes. The result is a dynamic, effective way to address chronic disease.

Dr. Husbands joins an elite group of approximately 600 practitioners who are certified through IFM’s Certification Program.

Dr. Husbands is a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Certified Clinical Nutritionist who specializes in gut health, autoimmune disorders and mold illness. He is also an expert in the Cox Technic, a non-surgical treatment for herniated disc and sciatica with a high success rate. He obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Cleveland Chiropractic College. Dr. Husbands has been in practice for over 27 years.
