What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare in that it works to understand and correct symptoms from the inside out. Rather than looking at the body as separate parts or systems and working to “fix” individual parts with surgeries and drugs, functional medicine sees the body as one complete being—where the function of each organ, cell and tissue works in harmony with the rest. By balancing the body’s systems and adjusting lifestyle issues that contribute to illness and disease, whole-body healing is found.
From chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension, to autoimmune disease and hormonal imbalance, down to anxiety, depression, allergies and more, functional medicine seeks to find the root cause of health issues. Whether you are experiencing insomnia, weight gain, aches and pains or fatigue, there is a root cause behind your suffering which functional medicine aims to identify and heal.
When these underlying dysfunctions behind your symptoms are addressed through diagnostic testing, we work to restore proper function through using targeted lifestyle changes, nutritionally balanced eating and a customized supplement program. We work to restore proper function while reducing symptoms and the need for medication.
In other words, we do not only restore health, but we help restores LIFE—naturally, safely and effectively.
