What Is Functional Medicine?
The functional medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, functional medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
Functional Medicine providers are trained to assess the patient's health status through careful history taking, extensive physical examination and specialized laboratory testing.
We use information from environmental factors ( your diet, physical condition and toxic exposure), your genetic make-up, and psychological, spiritual and social factors that have an influence on your health.
