What Folks Are Saying About Us
I found Valhalla Wellness with Dr. Yamane about a year ago now. Before that I was running into issues where I couldn’t get a hold of my weight or my cholesterol or triglycerides numbers.
Since then I’ve lost about 50 pounds, my numbers have gone cholesterol has gone from 240 to 170, my triglyceride from 300 to 107, even the HDL went up to 43.
It’s interesting, with this new way of thinking, which is no sugar, under 50 carbs, large amount of good fats and a large amount of good proteins. A couple of friends of mine are following the same kind of process. The husband and wife, one of them has lost 40 pounds and the other one has lost 35 pounds.
I’ve been doing well and I really appreciate it. I would highly recommend anybody coming into Valhalla and seeing Dr. Yamane.

What Exactly IS Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine helps patients achieve better overall health. Instead of focusing only on the specific symptoms making you feel bad, a functional approach to medicine places a priority on understanding why and how an illness started, as well as the optimal ways to treat and prevent it.
Your primary care doctor might medicate you to ease your symptoms and help you maintain your quality of life. Functional medicine, however, is about patient-centered care that improves your overall well-being.
Optimal health is more than just the absence of disease. Functional medicine features an integrated approach that utilizes science, genetics, internal and external factors to improve the body’s ability to overcome even chronic diseases.
There’s no one right answer to most health issues. That’s why functional medicine incorporates many different treatment types. We combine complementary medicine with traditional Western medical practices. Everything from the latest in lab testing technology to comprehensive supplements and botanical medicines plays a part in helping patients achieve optimal health.
The tools of functional medicine practitioners include enhanced nutrition and therapeutic lifestyle practices. Diet, exercise, stress-management techniques and detoxification programs are also integral parts of our approach.
The methods vary but the goal is simple: give you, our patients, the improved quality of life you deserve.
The Functional Medicine Services Valhalla Wellness Offers
We provide a multidisciplinary approach, geared toward healing on a cellular level. Our resources include a traditional family medical doctor, a naturopathic physician and a chiropractic physician. Whether you’re suffering from a chronic illness or you wish to lose weight and just feel better, we can help you resolve your problems by strengthening your body’s ability to heal.
We begin by incorporating a “quick fix” to reduce your symptoms in the short term. This relies on prescribed medications and/or herbal formulations, but that is only one part of our approach. We then deploy a functional approach to figure out the underlying cause of your health problems.
No two patients are the same, which is why we will take an in-depth look at your specific situation. We examine lab work and assess your diet and lifestyle to formulate the ideal program for you.
Our functional approach to medicine means we don’t focus on chasing your symptoms. Instead, we elevate your overall health by finding long-term resolutions to your underlying issues. Using our multifaceted methods, we can increase your wellness while optimizing your body’s ability to heal itself. Some of the approaches we use include:
There is a great deal of variety in the ways we can address your issues, but the steps taken are dependent on your needs and progress. Once we discover the underlying cause of your pain, we will take steps to resolve it, adjusting our approach whenever necessary.
At the heart of our functional approach to healing is one constant: A patient cannot achieve improved health without the necessary changes in diet and lifestyle. Furthermore, the most important trait a patient of functional medicine can have is the desire to get better.
Is Functional Medicine Right for You?
Not everyone is a match for functional medicine. That’s why we don’t take every patient who comes to us. The people we help must be willing to adhere to our program, which requires a great deal of commitment. At Valhalla Wellness, we offer resources that can improve your health as well as your quality of life. Still, we can’t help you if you’re not willing to do what’s necessary to help yourself.
If you’re committed to the program, however long it might be, we can help you achieve a level of wellness you might not have believed possible for yourself. It won’t always be easy to make these changes, which can include taking a lot of supplements and avoiding certain foods and habits. However, if you’re willing to do whatever it takes to solve your problems, we can help you discover a better, healthier you.
Ready to Take the First Step toward Feeling Better?
Whether you’re coming to us for relief from an illness or for weight loss, we will sit down with you and discuss the right programs for your needs upon your first visit. If we both decide you’re the right fit for our clinic, we’ll start you on a program geared toward the results you want to achieve.
If you find you’re interested in only certain aspects of the program we suggest, you’re free to pick and choose the components you want. We can accommodate your preferences, so long as you’re willing to commit to achieving better health on a cellular level.
