What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is devoted to discovering the underlying causes of chronic medical conditions.
Viewing your body as an integrated system, functional medicine uses a systems-oriented approach to a patient-centered care.
Functional medicine can be used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions including:
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Allergy & Food Sensitivity
- Autoimmune Disease
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Chronic Asthma
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Depression & Anxiety
- Eating Disorders
- Gastrointestinal Disorders
- High Cholesterol
- Weight Gain
How is Functional Medicine Different from Conventional Medicine?
Unlike conventional medicine, Functional Medicine addresses the patient as a whole - not as an isolated set of systems and symptoms. Functional Medicine is not satisfied with treating symptoms only; treatment is focused on finding the root cause of the disease process to promote healing and improved health.
Functional Medicine looks at both external (environmental) and internal (lifestyle) factors to determine the best course of patient care.
