About Discover Health Functional Medicine Center
Everything we do at Discover Health Functional Medicine Center is centered around you, the patient – because you hold the keys to so many aspects shaping your health. And without your active participation in your journey to health, none of our wisdom will create long term health.
Our Core Values Of Care
An Integrative Approach
Rooted in our focus on participatory patient care, it’s our mission to empower you with the knowledge and collective wisdom to create health yourself, no matter where you are right now.
Guided by our care team, you will embark on an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the best of both Eastern and Western medicine – including smart lifestyle modifications that will significantly improve your health and symptoms.
You’ll receive dedicated attention from our care team of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses and medical assistant.
During your exploratory consultation, you will meet with one of our medical providers to chart the course for your package of care.
The subsequent treatment will be largely handled by our care team based on your individual needs, supervised by your physician.
No patient is exactly the same, and there are many factors that affect your health. Guided by our team, we will get to the root cause of your disease, using diagnostic tests that your current doctor may not even know about.
We’ll explore your situation holistically, uncovering mediators in your home, at work, and your mental state to arrive at a “lifestyle prescription” that puts you back on the road to health.
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into the standard of care? At Discover Health Functional Medicine Center, our entire team is deeply committed to shortening that lag.
All our staff are life-long learners, continuously upgrading their wisdom through sharing best practices and seeking out innovative, out-of-the-box ideas to help our patients achieve their health goals.
Root Cause Resolution
Unlike traditional doctors, our care team always focuses on root cause resolution – isolating the key imbalance that is responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.
Also known as functional medicine, we seek to give you solutions, not more bandaids to cover up the symptoms (or treating side effects of drugs with even more drugs).
Just like your gut bacteria thrive on symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationships, your desired health outcome is much easier to achieve through the power of community.
We leverage group structures for patient education, peer-to-peer support, and accountability – with both your care team and your fellow patients rooting for your success.
The Philosophy That Drives Us
The philosophy that motivates everyone on our care teams at Discover Health Functional Medicine Center is pretty simple:
“Do whatever it takes to effectively, comfortably, and safely treat your patient. Whatever that ‘whatever’ is.”
Dr. Murray founded Discover Health Functional Medicine Center on the belief of participatory care where the patient is an instrumental partner in returning their body back to health (or keeping it healthy). And that it’s not about pre-determined ideas about a diagnosis without a full understanding of a patient’s situation.
That’s why the care team at Discover Health will leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting to the root cause of your inflammation and autoimmunity. In fact, the medical community finally realizes that all disease starts in the gut, and without taking the gut into account, no inflammation or autoimmune processes can be addressed at the root cause.
We will integrate findings from the most recent research along with literally decades of knowledge that our team has accumulated. As it is stated in our Core Values of Care, you will always be first in line for innovative, integrative treatment methods that combine the best of Western and Eastern medicine.

“I Love the Discover Health Program because….”
It was what I needed to have a sense of community because there are a lot of ways I was thinking about my own health, medical care, nutrition and lifestyle that weren’t shared by people I know, my family or others that I knew in town, so it is a great opportunity to interact with other like minded individuals. I’ve been able to share concerns or ask questions of others that I wouldn’t have otherwise.
“The results were amazing!”
My primary care physician was Astounded by the difference between May and August, I think if she could have done cartwheels she would have.
“Within 3 days I felt like a new person”
At the end of 4 months I feel as though I have totally transformed and have my life and health back.
