Looks For The Root Cause
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a broad category of medicine that engages both the patient and practitioner. This therapeutic partnership seeks to determine and address the underlying causes of sub-optimal health using a systems-oriented approach.
This approach to patient-centered care, empowers patients to take ownership of their healing through an integrative medicine approach guided by the ORIGEN team.
We call our propriety systems-based approach: the PATH
Which stands for : Prepare. Activate. Target. Heal.
Using this systems-based approach, ORIGEN helps people build paths to better health so that they can live healthier, happier lives.
What do ORIGEN’s patients have to say?
Dr. Tait was professional, thorough, knowledgeable and empathic! My visit with Dr. Tait did not feel rushed which is unusual in our current health system. He took the time to listen and address my concerns while providing knowledge and guidance. I feel confident that he will help address my medical issues and has the best interest for his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Tait, he is an exceptional Dr.
Dr Tait is a master educator which I believe is a critical trait for health professionals. He matched my concerns with data from the tests that I took, explaining how I can address my health issues without using drugs (which create their own health issues). His approach has given me hope that I can solve my health concerns by addressing the source on a permanent basis rather than going for a “quick fix”. I’m looking forward to getting his summary notes as a source for validating what I learned from him today. I also appreciated his openness to hearing from me regarding any questions, etc.
In addition, I want to say that a large part of my positive experience is with his assistant, Denisha Palacios. She is so supportive and knowledgeable.

I have been seeing Dr.Tait for several years, after I was told by an orthopedic surgeon, after one X-ray, that all that could be done for my knee was a total knee replacement. I was so fortunate to be given Dr. Tait’s contact info. I have had stem cell therapy and PRP on both knees over the years because of injuries and resulting arthritis, and I have been extremely happy with all the results.
More importantly, however, is his ‘whole body’ philosophy about health care that has changed my ways of thinking about my body and my health. I am much smarter about my decisions in food, supplements, exercise, and my overall lifestyle. If you are committed to keeping your body healthy without lots of drugs or surgeries, he is the doctor for you.
Dr. Tait is a true gift to the health and well-being of our Tucson community. I just completed his 21 day Detox Program and he was such an incredible guide throughout this entire program.
Not only did he give us a tremendous amount of information and all of the fundamentals to live a health life, he was supportive, encouraging, and 100% accessible every step of the way. He cares about his patients in a way that is so unique in the healthcare industry. He welcomed questions and always responded in a timely manner any time you would email him; even if just to ask him a question about purchasing the best quality of product at a grocery store. His level of care is beyond exceptional. I came away from this program having lost weight, eliminated pain in 2 chronic areas, empowered with a tremendous amount of knowledge, and renewed excitement about the next chapter of my health and wellness journey. Even though the 21 day program ended, Dr. Tait has left the door open for group and individual connections with him to ensure we continue to be inspired to live lives in which we can be our best selves. A true testament to his innate passion for helping his patients live pain free, health lives. Thank you Dr. Tait!
I'm extremely grateful for Dr. Tait's willingness to work with me, as an individual, to resolve my ongoing health issues. He's been very thorough, asking a plethora of questions, paying attention to my answers and is providing me with a game plan. I would highly recommend him and his equally kind and attentive staff, to anyone.
Dr. Tait used extensive testing and consultation to assist me in improving my overall health and in particular my gut health. He is very well prepared for each visit with a review of test results and suggested plan of action. He spends plenty of time on each visit, I never feel rushed. I recommend him highly to others in our community.
I made my first appointment with Dr. Tait in early 2019 after learning that he provides individualized medical guidance as to what supplements and foods help his patients achieve optimal health. I've spent my adult life following a healthy, physically active lifestyle, including taking supplements, based on longevity research. Frustratingly, over the past 40+ years alternative medicine doctors, nutritionists and exercise gurus frequently changed their advice, while my primary care doctor/s gave none and were annoyed that I refused to take prescription medicine.
Learning that Dr. Tait relies on blood and other tests to determine patients' individual health needs, i.e. what supplements/life style changes they would benefit from, was an answer to my prayers. The first series of tests showed what nutrients my body lacked, as well as revealing I suffered from a leaky gut. One year later, after using Rejuv's supplements and making minor food changes, a second round of tests showed many areas of improved body functioning. I am thankful for the scientific, personalized approach offered by Dr. Tait, it is a game changer and I have never felt better.
