Midwest Functional Medicine
Committed to helping our clients succeed
Dr Hermann’s personal life reflects his interest in health. He has taught tai chi at Illinois Wesleyan University since 1993. This Saturday morning class was started by him and his friend Dr Jiong Gu. The class has taught hundreds of locals how to perform and receive the health benefits of tai chi and has produced many of the local tai chi instructors. He is also a first degree black belt in Tai Kwon Do and enjoys sparing with his son. He frequently talks to various groups on nutrition, functional medicine, DNA, Chiropractic and acupuncture.
Of particular interest to him and sure to creep into every talk is the remarkable science of DNA. DNA is on the scientific forefront of medicine. It’s amazing ability to code all of life’s proteins in one organelle is nothing short of miraculous. Genetics are also useful in evaluating patients with chronic illness for single nucleotide polymorphisms, AKA SNP’s.
