Functional Medicine

Bottle of pills

Functional medicine is a form of integrative medicine which treats many health conditions by finding the underlying causes of a disease process. Functional medicine is personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care that is grounded in the following principles:

  • It focuses on treating individuals who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances and dysfunctions.
  • Functional medicine seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties.
  • Functional medicine practitioners provide acute and chronic care management with a wholistic system where we look at how diet, nutrition, and exposure to environmental toxins play central roles in many illnesses.
  • Biochemical individuality describes the importance of individual variations in metabolic function that derive from genetic and environmental differences among individuals.
  • Patient-centered medicine emphasizes "patient care" rather than "disease care."
  • Dynamic balance of internal and external factors. Web-like interconnections of physiological factors. Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease.
  • Promotion of organ reserve as the means to enhance health span. If you suffer from illness or pain, functional medicine may provide the answer to your health concerns.
