Dr. Turnpaugh is a skilled practitioner whose primary focus is on finding and addressing the root cause of disease. He graduated from Life College of Chiropractic and received his post-doctorate in functional neurology. His interest in functional medicine began with the intent on helping a patient who was looking to address his whole health picture after an ALS diagnosis. He attended a seminar in 1995 given by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, the father of functional medicine, and he was hooked. That began his career in root cause medicine.
