Functional Medicine

Naturopathic doctors believe in the healing power of nature and that by supporting the body naturally, it can heal itself. Functional medicine treats each person as an individual and offers primary holistic prevention while treating the root cause of illnesses or serious chronic disease. At Dragonfly 360 Wellness in Indianapolis, Dr. Melanie MacLaren utilizes functional medicine and naturopathic solutions to help clients manage their health.
