Hi! I'm Dr. Molly.

The traditional healthcare model has long centered around symptomatic treatment of end-stage disease and pharmaceutical interventions. However, a few minutes scrolling on social media will quickly point out that there’s a growing number of individuals seeking a more comprehensive approach—one that views health as an intricate tapestry woven from nutrition, body movement, sleep, and prevention. The demand for functional health providers who can educate their patients and help them ward off illness before it begins is on the rise. Yet, despite this demand, many health seekers find themselves grappling with the challenge of identifying and accessing such providers within a feasible distance. I once had a mother drive nine hours to bring her child to me for an airway examination and assessment- the extra travel time and cost astounded me.

Recognizing the need to bridge the gap between seekers of functional healthcare and the providers who champion these principles, I’m thrilled to introduce you to a groundbreaking solution: The Functional Finder—an innovative directory designed to connect health seekers with providers who share the same core values when it comes to wellness and protecting their health. Designed with a singular purpose—to unite seekers with providers who prioritize whole-body health—this platform serves as a virtual bridge between those seeking holistic care and the providers who embrace this paradigm. The Functional Finder eliminates the barriers that often impede access to functional healthcare, empowering individuals to discover the right provider for their needs. Search filters enable users to refine their search based on specialty, location, and approach. Whether you’re seeking a functional dentist, a movement-based therapist, or a nutrition-focused practitioner, The Functional Finder guides you to your ideal provider with ease.

This is a new era of healthcare—one that treasures the interconnectedness of the human body, mind, and spirit. The Functional Finder stands as a testament to this shift, offering a virtual haven for health seekers and providers who share in the vision of whole-body well-being. As one of the founders of this directory and a fervent advocate for functional health, I’m excited to witness the transformation it brings to the lives of countless individuals.

This directory is free for healthseekers to use and providers who join now can take 25% off their annual membership fee with the code DRMOLLY25. Read more about how membership works right here. Here’s to your health.
