What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a scientific approach to the prevention and
early assessment of complex, chronic diseases, and the use of
natural therapies to restore health and well-being. The focus of FM
is not on the condition itself but more on identifying and removing
the underlying cause and the obstacles that block our healing, and
improving existing physiological systems. Our patients utilize FM to
have their condition treated but also achieve a high quality of life
because the focus is on the whole person and not just the disease.
How Does Functional Medicine Work?
We begin by getting a thorough history of your past and present
health information and lab work. In Functional Medicine, the
physician acts as a “medical detective”, piecing together all of
your medical information, health assessments, history and lab
findings to provide a clear picture of the disease mechanism. By
identifying the main culprits (i.e. bacteria, parasites, food allergies,
stress, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, etc.) we are
able to treat the root cause of your condition, providing you with
the most optimal results. Conventional medicine skips this step and jumps right into the treatment, often missing the valuable information that provides answers to your health problems.
