Dear Albuquerque Community,

I am excited to introduce myself as the new owner and lead practitioner of the Functional Medicine Center of Albuquerque, New Mexico. My name is Dr. Alex Johnson, and I am a chiropractor with a deep passion for functional medicine and helping patients achieve optimal health and wellness. As a proud graduate of La Cueva High School, I am thrilled to return to my hometown and serve the community that has given me so much.

I received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Parker University in 2018, along with two bachelor's degrees in Anatomy and Health and Wellness Systems Management. Additionally, I have completed extensive training and earned my certification in functional medicine through Functional Medicine University.

Functional medicine is a patient-centered, science-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of chronic health issues, rather than merely treating symptoms. By considering each patient's unique genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors, we develop personalized treatment plans that promote long-term health and vitality.

My journey into functional medicine was a personal one. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) years ago, I experienced firsthand the limitations of conventional medicine in managing chronic conditions. Through functional medicine, I discovered a path to successfully manage my MS symptoms and reclaim my health. This experience has given me a unique perspective on the challenges faced by those with chronic illnesses and has strengthened my commitment to helping others achieve optimal wellness.

At the Functional Medicine Center of Albuquerque, we offer a range of services designed to support your health, including functional medicine counseling, chiropractic care, nutritional counseling, supplement sales, and myofascial therapy. Our practice also utilizes various testing methods, such as functional medicine testing, genetic testing, and blood testing, to gain a comprehensive understanding of your health and develop targeted treatment plans.

In the coming months, I will be working closely with Dr. Redd to ensure a smooth transition and maintain the high-quality care you have come to expect. I am committed to collaborating with other healthcare providers in the area, including medical professionals, chiropractors, and other therapists, to provide comprehensive and integrated care for our patients.

As a long-time practitioner of meditation, I understand the profound impact it can have on reducing stress and promoting overall well-being. I look forward to exploring ways to integrate stress-reduction techniques into our practice to support your holistic health journey.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about how functional medicine can benefit your health, please visit our website or contact our office. We are here to support you every step of the way.

I look forward to meeting you and being your partner in health.

Alex Johnson DC
