Functional Medicine Clinic

Getting to the root of the problem

Well Balanced, A Functional Medicine practice located in Eugene, Oregon,  addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patients and practitioners 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. This includes a detailed medical and life history, which may shine light on the initial cause or sequence of causes that may lead to disease over a lifetime.

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 intake and practitioner findings. along with a protocol so you can continue to improve your health through dietary and environmental commitments.
