Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.
The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.
It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing the root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of the disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.

Dr. Kathy Veon Wants You To Learn About Eustis Florida
Eustis is a town of 20,000 people about 30 miles northwest of Orlando. Along with Tavares and Mount Dora, it is one apex of what is known as Florida’s “Golden Triangle”. Eustis is on the eastern shore of Lake Eustis, and was first known as Highlands and later as Pendryville.
It became known as Lake Eustis after the lake which had been named in 1825 for Abraham Eustis, an American general in the Seminole Wars. Before the railroad showed up in the 1880s, Eustis was a busy port for steamers traveling on Lakes Harris, Eustis, Dora, and Griffin. This chain of lakes had access to the world through the Oklawaha River to the St Johns River and the Atlantic Ocean.
In 1883 the town dropped the “Lake” part of its name and became simply Eustis. Citrus became an important crop in the area, but the great freeze of 1894 and 1895 nearly destroyed the industry. Over the years, the fruit trees once again became prominent in the economy of the area. More freezes in 1983 and 1984 was the latest major setback to the citrus crops, destroying most of the trees in this part of Florida.
Eustis has many well-preserved older homes and buildings. Its downtown area has been redeveloped and has many interesting shops and restaurants. Guilford David Clifford was an early pioneer whose house at the corner of Bay Street and Bates Avenue is now home to the Eustis Historical Museum and Preservation Society. Frank Waterman was a fountain pen manufacturer from New York who built the Fountain Inn in Eustis in the 1920s. It served later as the local hospital until it was demolished in recent years. It is the direct ancestor of today’s modern Florida Hospital Waterman. Waterman was a generous philanthropist who shared much of his wealth with the town of Eustis.
The downtown area along Lake Eustis has been developed into a wonderful park for fishing, picnics and concerts. Ferran Park is a great place to watch the Central Florida sunsets. The highlight of each year is GeorgeFest, one of the oldest festivals in the United States celebrating the birthday of George Washington. It is reportedly the longest running festival of any kind in the entire state of Florida. February, 2021 marked the 119th consecutive celebration by the city.
