Your Gateway to Vibrant Health

Practical Health Tips and Perspectives from Dr. Ron Grisanti, a Leading Advocate of Functional Medicine

Learn about the real causes of illness, instead of learning how to live with an illness

Don't let anyone tell you that you must just accept that you have an illness and learn to live with it. Instead, join the thousands of health care consumers who are eager to know the true cause of diseases.

Discover how to get healthy again and stay healthy without drugs, which often have side effects and limited effectiveness (stop taking them, and the problem comes back).

Dr. Ron Grisanti, D.C., D.A.B.C.O.,D.A.C.B.N., M.S.

My name is Dr. Ron Grisanti. I am a Board Certified Chiropractic Orthopedist with a Masters degree in Nutritional Science. I also hold a Diplomate with the American Clinical Board of Nutrition and have a passionate interest in helping you get well and stay well in the least harmful and most long-lasting way possible.

As medical director of Functional Medicine University, I teach chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopaths and medical doctors how to implement the exciting, science-based paradigm of Functional Medicine. Here at Your Medical Detective we share Functional Medicine perspectives on health problems in plain language with consumers like you.
