Patients come to me for a wide variety of issues after they have seen many other specialists. Unlike traditional doctors, as a Functional Medicine Practitioner I go directly to the underlying route cause of their health concerns.

So many people know that chiropractic could really help them, but are often fearful of the adjustment. They might have been told by a medical doctor “never get your neck adjusted or you could get injured.” I have seen this many times. Even my own mother was fearful of getting her neck manipulated.  She would say, “Not my neck!”

dr scott banks functional medicine solutionsMethylation is a process that occurs in the body millions of time per day. In this process, a single carbon plus three hydrogens known as a methyl group is applied to facilitate many crucial functions in the body. 

Methylation is critical in repairing DNA, removal of environmental and metabolic toxins plus boosting your immune system just to name a few.

Methylation defects are associated with estrogen related cancers (breast, ovarian, prostate etc.), stroke, cardiovascular events, depression, anxiety, Alzheimer’s, autism and many autoimmune disorders. Defects in methylation reduce your ability to detoxify.

In patients’ search to get well they have often gone the traditional route with little results and a prescription for an acid blocker. This is not going to fix the problem and often will contribute to the patient’s downward spiral over time. Conventional testing looking at IgE food allergies fails to pick up foods that the patient has a delayed sensitivity to. IgG testing looks at these delayed sensitivities and can often be discovered and then removed from the diet with a positive outcome in the patient’s health. 

As a certified gluten practitioner I have the ability to offer my patients a more sensitive and sophisticated type test. Cyrex labs is a premier functional assessment lab that offers testing that I can not get from any other lab.

I have added the BEMER Vascular Therapy to my array of specialized processes to accelerate patients’ wellbeing and continued optimal health.

Effective blood circulation is a prerequisite for a healthy mind/body condition. It is necessary for healing and regeneration of the body. Blood is the vehicle for the supply of nutrients and oxygen as well as for the removal of metabolic end products and toxins.

The choices you make at meal time can trigger your immune system to induce systemic inflammation. Twenty years ago when we talked about “leaky gut” at a conventional medical seminar it was considered an artifact. However, if you do a published medical search on it today, many high profile publications will appear.


An abundance of unhealthy fats and sugar can set the stage for inflammation by prompting an immune response. It is now evident that obesity and Type II Diabetes are associated with a low grade inflammatory tone.

We now know that the gut is very important and the interplay of the diet with alterations of the food supply can have profound implications in overall long term health relationships.


We also know that the diet that interacts with our microbiome affects our systemic health.

Heart disease has been called the Silent Killer because it often has no noticeable symptoms. It's more deadly than all forms of cancer combined and it’s not just "an old man’s disease."


Since the first National Wear Red Day in 2003, we've made tremendous strides in the fight against heart disease in women. Through research and education on healthy lifestyle changes, we’re proud that:

LOCAL CLINICIAN RECOGNIZED AS a graduate of The Institute for Functional Medicine’s Certification Program

Dr. Scott J. Banks, DC, IFMCP, PC Joins Elite Group of IFM Certified Practitioners



Federal Way, WA; February 3, 2014 – Of total healthcare costs in the United States, more than 75% is due to chronic conditions.

The key to reversing the rapidly spreading epidemic of chronic disease is to address the underlying causes and solutions for chronic disease, which are primarily driven by the lifelong, daily interaction among an individual’s genetics, environment, and lifestyle choices. Functional medicine not only incorporates the latest in genetic science and systems biology, but it also enables health care practitioners to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine while empowering patients to take an active role in their own health.


The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in providing clinical education in functional medicine, is pleased to announce Dr. Scott J. Banks as a member of the first graduating class of certified functional medicine practitioners.

dr scott banks functional medicineEverywhere we go we hear the term "GMOs." Here is a brief explanation:


GMOs are organisms that have been created through the gene-splicing techniques of the biotech industry. GMOs are also know as genetically engineered, or GE. This new science became available in the mid-nineties. This science allows DNA from one species to be injected into another species in a laboratory, creating combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur in nature.


In the US,  the FDA approved commercial production of GMO's based on studies conducted by the companies that created them and profit from their sale. I call this tobacco-science. Many enlightened people find the lack of rigorous,...

As many of you know I have a tremendous passion for helping patients reverse or prevent chronic disease of aging. I have been a practicing Chiropractor since 1982 and in 1995 I first heard Dr. Jeffrey Bland speak at a conference. From that moment on I knew that my education and direction of my practice would go in the direction of Functional Medicine. I recently completed and passed the rigorous certification program and can now use the title: Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner (IFMCP).


In order to sit for the exam and become certified I completed...

I have had the opportunity of listening to Dr. Houston many times over the last decade. He has helped increased my knowledge in the field of Cardiology. He is a good friend. Dr. Houston states that there is a strong relationship between gluten and metabolic syndrome. This will include vascular problems, endothelial dysfunction, coronary heart disease, etc.


The blood vessel has a infinite number of insults, but only three finite responses to the insults. The three finite responses are inflammation, oxidative stress, and vascular autoimmune dysfunction. Idiopathic cardio myopathy= swelling of the heart. This can reverse on a gluten free diet in gluten sensitive people.


In my practice for years I have always done the Advanced...

There was a recent article that created a media surge regarding the effects of fish oil supplementation on prostate cancer. This is not true. The subjects in this study were not supplemented with fish oil or on a high fish diet. This in itself means it is completely inappropriate to suggest that such would cause prostate cancer.

brain healthA few nights ago, we held a small lecture on about brain health, which has A LOT to do with overall health. 

For those of you who missed it, we've put together some of the most important points from the night, along with some of the most recommended supplements to kick start your brain health into high gear!

Alzheimer's is a preventable disease of old age for which there is no cure! Alzheimer's isn't all genetics. It's about epigenetics: all the environmental effects expressed on your genetics. British journal of health found that cholinesterase inhibitors used to treat Alzheimer's have been found ineffective. Reduce inflammation. Inflammation causes heart, brain, digestive, and other diseases. Oxidative stress is damage to lipids, proteins, DNA & RNA. This causes the brain to deteriorate. Vitamin C and E are antioxidants that help reverse oxidative stress and reduce prevalence of Alzheimer's....

 Functional medicine treats the person (patient) and not the “problem” (disease/issue). In addition, it provides a framework for the practice of medicine that uses all the tools of healing, both conventional and alternative, to address the whole person rather than an isolated set of symptoms.
