We Practice



Functional medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of a disease. Each symptom may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.


At Venice Beach HRT of Des Moines, we offer a cutting-edge alternative to traditional medical practices. Instead of just managing symptoms, our team at Venice Beach HRT prioritizes identifying and addressing the foundational causes of health challenges. By investigating the subtle imbalances within the body, we aim to re-establish peak health and guarantee long-term vitality for our Des Moines clientele.

What sets Venice Beach HRT apart in the Des Moines healthcare scene is our unwavering commitment to a personalized, patient-centric philosophy. Recognizing that every individual has distinct health needs, our specialists craft treatments designed uniquely for them. These strategies consider a person’s genetics, environment, lifestyle, hormonal levels, and emotional health, ensuring a well-rounded health plan for our patients.

Furthermore, prevention is a cornerstone of Venice Beach HRT. Through education and lifestyle recommendations, we empower our clients to make lasting changes that can preempt potential health issues.
