My name is Dr. Brooke Jordan and I'm a family medicine physician by training and a functional medicine physician by divine intervention. I attended medical school here in Fort Worth at UNT’s Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, graduating in 2013. I stayed in Fort Worth for my family medicine residency at JPS and graduated as a board-certified family medicine physician in 2016.
What We Believe
Here at Fort Worth Functional Medicine, we believe that we are all created by God with bodies that have everything necessary to heal and maintain health. We believe that what we call disease is a lack of homeostasis or equilibrium in our body systems. Most often these imbalances are created by our lifestyles and the environments we ask our bodies to function in. We wholeheartedly agree with my mentor, Ben Edwards, who founded Veritas Clinic in Lubbock, that there are 4 pillars which are the foundation to wellness: Nutrition, Hydration, Movement, and Peace. We believe that our job is to educate, inspire, and empower each patient to reclaim control over their health and return to a state of balance, where their body is again able to heal itself. Our goal is for each patient to reach this state of homeostasis and then only need to see us once a year for a wellness visit!
What is Functional Medicine?
An Evolution in the
Practice of Medicine
By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time
with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
