About Our Virtual Nutrition & Wellness Programs
At Nashville Regenerative Orthopedics, we apply the principles of functional medicine through our Virtual Nutrition and Wellness Programs. In this program, the patient and doctor form a therapeutic partnership to determine and address underlying causes of disease using a systems-oriented approach. This partnership empowers the patient to take ownership of their own health.
Comprehensive lab work (blood panels, testing hormones, and testing for food sensitivities) helps uncover deficiencies that can be treated with lifestyle interventions, including:
- Nutrition counseling
- Fitness programming
- Stress reduction
- Sleep quality improvement
- Strengthening of positive, supportive social connections

The Core Principals of Functional Medicine
Two of the core principals that inform functional medicine are
- Understanding the biochemical individuality of each person, based on genetics and environmental uniqueness.
- Identification of health as a positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease.
We employ these principles in our Nashville peptide therapy program for weight loss and maintenance treatments and anti-aging treatments.
The Benefits of Functional Medicine
Epidemiological studies show that when patients optimize nutrition, fitness, stress reduction, sleep quality, and emotional support, longevity increases. And the incidence of chronic, debilitating medical conditions decreases.
