Functional medicine

Getting to the root of the problem

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Functional Medicine treats the person who has the disease, not the disease the person has.

An integral part of Functional Medicine is finding the interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

By doing this, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. After an initial evaluation, your practitioner will develop a treatment plan based on your individual exam results, along with a protocol so you can continue to improve your health through dietary and environmental commitments.

Two-prong approach to care

To battle chronic health conditions, Functional Medicine uses two scientifically grounded principles:

  1. Add what the body is lacking to nudge its physiology back to a state of optimal functioning.
  2. Remove anything that is impeding the body from moving toward or maintaining its optimal state of physiology.

Your body wants to be healthy, but sometimes it needs help to get back to the path of wellness.

In addition, with the knowledge you now have about what causes your condition, you can now be empowered to take charge of your own health, ultimately leading to greater success in your treatment.
