Synergy Between Functional Medicine and Artificial Intelligence
RootFinder® is the new and unique way to identify and treat the root causes of chronic complex health conditions.

This process can be the first step for many individuals who seek to reverse, cure or prevent these chronic conditions.

Your personalized symptom analysis combines the expertise and knowledge of functional medicine leaders with the power of sophisticated software algorithms. RootFinder is designed to make the diagnostic process more efficient  saving significant amounts of time, money, and frustration for both clients and their practitioners.

Our approach is the result of more than a decade of research and development. Grounded in the medical discipline of root cause analysis, our approach is better able to discover and characterize intertwined root causes of complex health conditions that must be addressed in order to regain health. It also provides you with an Illness IndexTM that helps you track your improvement over time. 

Our approach DOES NOT require you to collect a sample of your body fluid (blood, saliva, stool) and send it away for processing. At Complex Health Solutions, we believe that you know your body best. You simply answer a series of questions about your symptoms. Our RootFinder tool, which is evidence-based and backed by over a decade of research with patients just like you, takes all of the information and data you provide about your unique history and symptoms and matches it to the most likely cause of your ailments. This process is based in science and is proven to help patients with complex health conditions uncover the true reasons behind their suffering.

We have harnessed the power of computing and advanced software algorithms to create an analytical engine. This engine takes into account over one hundred symptoms, their relationship with various root causes, and information about the strength of such relationships. Under the supervision of our founder, Dr. Andrew Lenhardt, our team of professionals curates the information and the knowledge provided to our analytical engine on an on-going basis. Our technology experts ensure that these on-going updates are used by the engine correctly and completely. List of references and publications used by our team, is found here
RootFinder Overview
RootFinder Overview

RootFinder is an algorithm-based modeling system that predicts the most likely underlying root causes that explain your chronic symptoms and health problems. This analysis is not a substitute for the assessment and recommendations of your primary care provider and other medical specialists. Those practitioners will reliably make diagnoses like Type 2 diabetes, essential hypertension, kidney stones and many others. They may or may not try to understand why you developed those chronic health conditions.

Overall, there are two paradigms in health and medicine. Conventional medicine generally seeks to make a diagnosis that can then be managed indefinitely, often with pharmaceuticals. The functional/integrative paradigm works to understand the root causes for all health issues on a more individualized basis. We don’t necessarily need to choose between the two approaches to health. The goal is to take the best from both worlds and come up with an optimal plan for each person.

Complex Health Solutions and the RootFinder are not intended to diagnose conditions like hypertension, diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, cancer, heart attacks, blood clots, strokes and other similar acute and chronic health problems. The goal of RootFinder is fundamentally different. The system is trying to understand those underlying root causes that can be identified, understood and reversed.

A partial list of the root causes analyzed by our science and data-backed RootFinder tool:

  • Low Cortisol
  • Low DHEA
  • Low Estrogen
  • Low Progesterone
  • Low Testosterone
  • Low Thyroid
  • High Cortisol
  • High DHEA
  • High Estrogen
  • High Progesterone
  • High Testosterone
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Pyrrole Disorder
  • MTHFR and methylfolate deficiency
  • Oxalate Problems
  • Copper Imbalance
  • Mold Toxin Illness
  • EBV and Chronic Active Viruses
  • Tick-borne Infections
  • Systemic Fungal/Candida Overgrowth
  • Heavy Metal Toxicity
  • Mineral Deficiencies and Imbalances
  • Chronic Intestinal Parasites
  • Limbic System Dysfunction
  • Mast Cell Activation
  • Overmethylation
  • Undermethylation
  • SIBO- Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
  • Th1 Dominant Immune Imbalance
  • Th2 Dominant Immune Imbalance

Root cause analysis is consistent with the latest approach to healthcare, widely known as Functional Medicine.

In functional medicine, these basic principles are followed:
  • All symptoms and health issues have underlying causes.
  • The better we understand those underlying causes, the better we can improve, reverse, cure and/or prevent those symptoms and health issues.
  • The cells, tissues and systems of the body are interconnected.
  • The optimal way to manage health is from a thorough understanding of these interconnected systems with a holistic frame of reference that can be in opposition to the fragmented, hyperspecialized mainstream medical world.
