Daniel Stickler, M.D.


Dr. Stickler is a functional medicine physician and serves as the Medical Director of Synchronicity Wellness as well as Physiologix Medical Institute.  He is also hosts a blog: PaleoDoc.com.  
He trained in allopathic medicine and held board certification in General Surgery for more than ten years; performing general and vascular surgery as well as over 3,000 gastric bypass weight loss procedures. He had a thriving surgical practice and was a specialist in weight loss, treating over 10,000 clients in both the surgical practice and at the wellness institute. The busier he became the more he began to realize that true health is not a result of pharmaceuticals and stainless steel. He discovered that the clients at the wellness institute were making remarkable progress through nutrition, fitness and lifestyle counseling and hormone optimization.  Not only were they resolving disease, they were optimizing health, regaining vitality, improving neuro-cognitive status and creating lasting changes.  
This realization led him to the understanding that he could leave the old methods behind and fully embrace the new paradigm of health optimization. He retired from surgery and now knows that each individual has within them the ability to achieve optimal health and live a life full of vitality. He works closely with each client to develop individualized treatment regimens and provides extensive guidance throughout the year to assist the client in achieving their goals.

G. Warren Walsh, Jr., DMD


Dr. Walsh is a practicing dentist interested in helping people obtain whole body health and wellness.  

 He stumbled into the paleo lifestyle/functional medicine paradigm almost four years ago looking for a new way to approach health, nutrition, and a better way of "living".  What started out as a personal journey now exudes though his personal, family, and professional life.

 Upon discovering functional medicine, Dr Walsh started to see many parallels between the state of dental health and whole body health and he is constantly working on ways to better serve his patients through diet and lifestyle modification programs in his current dental practice.

 He has a special interest in nutritional optimization and human performance using many different technologies and nutritional modalities.
