Functional Medicine is a personalized approach to health that focuses on the web-like interconnections of body systems rather than individual systems. This allows for a comprehensive approach that addresses the cause not just the symptoms. Core imbalances that include digestive, immune, hormonal, inflammatory, and structural are often the root of many chronic diseases, as well as the pre-disease state that so many people experience as one or more of the following: fatigue, depression, weight gain, foggy thinking, heartburn, and many others.
The functional medicine model of care influences the body at multiple levels to address these core clinical imbalances and to restore each patient’s functionality and health. Functional medicine is not a unique and separate body of knowledge. It is grounded in scientific principles, combining research from various disciplines to develop an effective clinical approach to your health.
Functional medicine focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. We use the patient’s history, signs and symptoms, and lab results to develop a comprehensive plan including lifestyle activities, dietary recommendations, and nutritional supplementation when required.
