Functional Medicine

At Baku Chiropractic & Functional Medicine, we have a particular focus on helping patients with different types of autoimmune diseases, particularly autoimmune thyroid disorders (Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Graves Disease).

We also see patients with chronic fatigue, digestive disturbances, nausea, headaches and sleeping issues. Some people also have what we call “mystery illness.” These patients have random symptoms that don’t seem make sense. Often, they’ve already been to many doctors but have not gotten any answers and continue to suffer with their illness.

What to Expect

When it comes to patients’ health, we never guess, but instead test. Here are the ways we determine what’s going on with a patient’s health.

Assessing stress and brain function

We use Heart Rate Variability (HRV) computerized technology, which is the gold standard for measuring stress and brain function. It helps us determine if you are headed towards health and wellness or if you are headed towards sickness and disease. HRV includes some biofeedback that targets organs and parts of the body that are under stress.

Offering several types of evaluations


We will evaluate the body for toxins, such as molds, viruses, bacteria, fungus and heavy metals.


Many people don’t get enough vitamin D, for example. We will evaluate for nutritional imbalances and recommend additional supplementation if needed. We also perform food allergy testing, which typically consists of kinesiology muscle testing. If we need a deeper test will order bloodwork or take urine samples to check for pH acid/alkalinity levels.


These physical and neurological tests are used to assess the brain and the nerves using muscle testing and functional neurology testing in the office.

Our Therapies

The treatment protocol for most patients typically includes supplementation and a combination of therapies, including detoxification, energizing, and anti-inflammatory modalities.

Here’s a look at the various tools Dr. Baku has in his toolbox to get optimal results for patients:

Infrared light therapy

This therapy stimulates healing by increasing energy production in the cells, which leads to better circulation and faster healing.

Ionic cleanse detox foot bath therapy

This therapy pulls toxins out of the body through the feet. It also pumps hydrogen, which is pure energy, into the body. Anytime we can take the toxic load off the body that will increase energy, allowing the body to return to healing.

Pulse electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF)

This device increases energy voltage over every cell of your body. It duplicates the earth’s natural electromagnetic frequencies—recharging every cell and mitochondria in the body and increasing circulation and energy production. We use Pulsed Harmonix.

Frequency specific microcurrent

This therapy is similar to PEMF as there are pulsing charges into the body. You can be highly specific with it and direct that charge to lower inflammation, to improve liver function, activate parts of your brain, bones and muscles. Frequency specific microcurrent is programmed to target the specific ailments we are trying to heal.

Multi-step oxygen therapy

We use what’s called Live02™, a type of oxygen therapy that can help to optimize the immune system, lower inflammation, improve circulation, increase detoxification and help people recover from fatigue. Every cell and organ require oxygen to heal and function properly.

Some Patient Success Stories

We’ve been privileged to see many patient success stories at the practice. Here are a few memorable ones:

Thyroid conditions

We had two patients diagnosed with autoimmune thyroid issues: one had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which causes hypothyroidism and the other had Graves’ disease, which causes hyperthyroidism. After treating them, Dr. Baku was able to get all of their bloodwork normalized.

If someone retook their bloodwork it would reveal they didn’t have an autoimmune disease anymore. While we can’t say that functional medicine cured the patients, their bodies were able to heal naturally. The patients experienced an improvement in their energy and moods and how they felt and functioned every day. They truly regained their lives.

Lung weakness

Another patient had severe lung weakness. After receiving care, 3-4 months later, she’s feeling so much better. The patient is able to breathe easier and isn’t having any digestive issues. She’s able to enjoy her favorite foods again.


How is your approach to functional medicine different from other practices?

The type of functional medicine we offer is based on European biological medicine. The biological European functional medicine focuses on identifying multiple underlying causes of disease. As most westernized functional medicine approaches only focus on diet and supplementation, we aim to restore the body as a whole by giving it energy/voltage, with the above mentioned therapies, along with the right nutrients. Every single cell depends on maintaining a certain level of voltage to work properly. For example, a healthy cell should be around -50 to -70 millivolts. A cancerous cell loses voltage and becomes +35 millivolts. Increasing cell voltage creates new healthy stem cells and as a result increases the body’s ability to heal as a whole and function as a whole better.

How will you put me at ease?

With functional medicine, there’s no need to be nervous. The tests we use are completely painless, quick and inexpensive. No poking, prodding or needles are used. Instead, we use simple, noninvasive testing.

Are there extra fees for functional medicine testing?

No, currently we don’t charge additional fees for it. However, if blood work is ordered, that is an additional fee charged by the lab.

Does insurance cover functional medicine?

No, it does not.
