We want you to gain knowledge and understanding of the gifts that new scientific advances have to offer. You will acquire the tools necessary to support your health decades before the average physician will be incorporating them into his or her practice.
You will gain access to a wealth of information, education, resources and products that support you on your journey toward health. You will be able to take advantage of the medicine of the future, today. Visit our section on Achieving UltraWellness to find out more about the future of medicine.
The UltraWellness Center and DrHyman.com were created to help facilitate the transformation of health care by empowering the health care consumer to learn the tools necessary to create and maintain optimal health and well-being.
Our Commitment is to be a trusted source of education and information about the radical transformation occurring in our health care system, and provide the tools for people to take advantage of the medicine of the future, today.
Our Desire is to break down the barriers between alternative, complementary, integrative and conventional medicine and to create just good medicine. We can do this by having all health care practitioners utilize the appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic tools that match the problem, not just those applied by a particular discipline such as conventional medicine, herbal medicine, Chinese medicine or energy medicine.
Our Goal is to provide a road map to help you navigate through health problems within an entirely new frame of reference, one that allows you to understand and address the causes of disease and ill health rather than just treating symptoms.
Our Wish is to have everyone say, “I didn’t know I could feel this good.”
We are committed to making this new science of health available to both physicians and health care consumers as quickly as possible so that no one will have to suffer for lack of knowledge or access.
Dr. Hyman’s wish is for all people to experience what Dr. Lester Breslow refers to as the third public health revolution:
“Individuals can aim for more than freedom from those physical and mental disturbances that are listed in the disease nomenclature. With equal emphasis, the energy and reserves of health that permit a buoyant life, full of zest and the eager ability to meet life’s challenges, should be sought.”–Lester Breslow, MD, MDH, “From Disease Prevention to Health Promotion, JAMA, 1999; 281:1030-1033
The UltraWellness Center
THE ULTRAWELLNESS CENTER was opened in 2004 by Dr. Mark Hyman after nearly 10 years as the co-medical director of nearby Canyon Ranch. At Canyon Ranch, he pioneered the principles of Functional Medicine and helped thousands achieve relief from treatment-resistant chronic health problems, and discover optimal health and vitality–in a word, UltraWellness.
The UltraWellness Center was opened with two key goals in mind:
- First and foremost, to create a place where people could come to regain their health and find access to and benefit from medical science and information that has not yet been incorporated into conventional medical care; to experience the medicine of the future, today.
- Second to become part of a collaborative research and practice network in Functional Medicine. If medicine is to change, three things must occur. First, physicians must be re-educated in a new model of care. Then, a reproducible clinical model must be developed so that other physicians can practice Functional Medicine. Lastly, leading clinical centers of Functional Medicine must participate in research to advance the science and demonstrate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of this model so it can become widespread.
The UltraWellness Center was created as a place where all of this can happen.
