How can Functional Medicine help me get better?
Functional Medicine is a collaborative, evidence driven approach to your health and wellness...
If you are one of over 50 million Americans suffering from chronic disease, Functional Medicine has much to offer you. While it is a generalized, holistic approach to wellness, even specialists such as allergists, dermatologists, ENTs, gynecologists, urologists, orthopedists, opthamologists, accident and trauma surgeons, internists, sports medicine, dentists, and even veterinarians have started using it in their practices because of its proven effectiveness.
Functional Medicine offers a new paradigm in healthcare, based on the belief that diseases don't exist. What we know as diseases are really an expression of a breakdown in our interconnected biological systems. Functional Medicine looks at the big picture, focusing on the individual instead of the ailment and symptoms. Functional Medicine Practitioners build partnerships with our patients, empowering them to take control of their own health and make sustainable, positive lifestyle changes. You deserve more than temporary relief. Functional Medicine offers long-term recovery, so that you can go on to live a healthy life.

David – Morristown, NJ
I had joint problems, overall lack of energy and lots of aches and pains. I thought that this was what aging at 60 was all about, until I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. After working with Dr. Shair, I got my health and energy back! Today I feel younger and more energetic than ever!
Andrea – Colonia, NJ
Since working with Dr. Shair my life has improved tremendously because I was terrified, lost and frustrated that I couldn't get better. After I met Dr. Shair, I feel that there are answers, and the certainty of getting better permanently. I don't feel scared anymore because I can always turn to him and he'll have the solutions.

Robin – Bridgewater, NJ
I was diagnosed with Lyme in 2014 by an infectious disease doctor who despite my negative lab results, LISTENED to me and treated with a round of Doxycycline. The catch? Because there was no medical proof, I could not be treated again. The anxiety of waiting for the other shoe to drop stole the peace of daily living. Was I CURED?...when might I have a relapse? Could I ever enjoy the outdoors again? I was introduced to Dr. Shair, who through his personal Lyme experience and extensive knowledge, confirmed that I indeed still had Lyme AND 4 co infections. But the most important piece he confirmed was that there was a cure, and peace to come with immune treatments. I have been following his protocol for 6 months, with concrete confirmation that the infections are being irradiated. I have my energy and health restored, and HOPE for the future. Thank you Doctor Alan, for my LIFE.
Herb – Mendham, NJ
In 2010 I was medically diagnosed by my cardiologist with pericardial and peripleural effusion. My heart rate was 150 beats per minute and I had a collapsed lung. I was admitted to the emergency room and a surgeon removed the fluid from my heart and pleura. My heart rate returned to normal. Six weeks later it went back up to 125 beats per minute. My cardiologist advised me to take beta blockers to regulate the electrical conducting system of my heart. Instead, I decided to try an alternative treatment and went to Dr. Alan Shair who recommended herbs and other remedies. Since then my heart rate has been in the low sixties. I have been examined many times over the last 1½ years and my pulse has been slow and strong. I suffered from Lyme Disease, which Dr. Shair addressed. I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Dr. Alan Shair. He really saved my life!
