the fork functional medicine

Welcome to a place of discovery and wellness that has little in common with your typical doctor's office. At TheFork Functional Medicine we are a clinic specializing in FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE. Our providers are committed to your highest best.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE: Chyrl has a passion for functional medicine and started this clinic to meet the needs of people suffering from conditions that keep them from living their best life.  Chyrl and Emily both are committed to root cause medicine and helping people change their lives through a personalized approach to their health.

Our niche is seeing patients with hormone, thyroid, weight loss, gastrointestinal concerns, autoimmune and inflammatory conditions.  Autoimmunity and inflammatory conditions, weight issues, hormone imbalance and thyroid dysfunction often go hand in hand. I tell patients all the time, “it's never one thing”. The body is a group of complex biological systems working together and interconnected. When one thing is off, it will cascade over into other systems and create a multitude of accompanying issues.  One system affects all the others.  

We work with women to manage hormone imbalance with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and to restore optimal function of the thyroid in those with hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Graves disease, and Hashimoto’s.  

We address autoimmunity and inflammatory conditions daily at the clinic. Whether alone or in the company of other co-conditions, autoimmunity, adds a higher level of complexity and requires careful assessment and treatment to see improvements. We feel this requires a special kind of focus.  

We have a very exciting peptide practice treating a wide variety of situations. Our peptide weight loss program is very successful and unlike other weight loss programs we offer a very comprehensive approach to weight loss that addresses more than just the weight. Obesity and resistance to weight loss is typically a symptom of other conditions or dysfunction in the body and requires a holistic and comprehensive approach with a solid long term plan for success.

We also have a terrific program using cutting edge peptide therapy for inflammatory conditions including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune diseases. Additionally we can address wound healing by stimulating cellular regrowth systems within the body. We have great success with cardiovascular health, metabolic dysfunction, and gastrointestinal conditions. Science has given us incredible evidence and guidance in the use of peptides for neurocognitive support, such as anxiety, depression, brain injury, cognitive decline, and stroke. Peptides are being used for pain management, weight management, hair growth, anti-aging, treatment of conditions like Lymes, EBV, and others. We feel that peptide therapy is the cutting edge of medicine. Learn more bout peptides here..

We assess for and treat conditions together with a whole body holistic approach when they are present in conjunction.  

We are excited to practice functional medicine and embrace its application in more complex cases; these are patients who have been unable to resolve ongoing complex health issues and achieve the level of wellness they desire. Often times these issues may have been ongoing for years and remain a heavy burden on the patient's ability to enjoy life and be healthy.

Our clinic is open on Mondays through Thursdays, Chyrl  sees patients by appointment only. Chyrl also does deep dives into more complex issues. At The Fork work as a team to get to the root cause of underlying issues. You can find out more HERE.  

At The Fork we specialize in personalized health care, integrative and alternative medicine with appointments lasting anywhere from 15 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the patient's needs and the time it takes to get to the root of a patient’s physical discomfort or health challenges. Please call ahead for an appointment. 

what is functional medicine?

An integrative, science-based healthcare approach. As a functional medicine practitioner we look “upstream” to consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning. ~ Dr. Mark Hyman
