Functional medicine blends traditional medicine with what may be considered “integrative” or “alternative” medicine. With a focus on prevention using the latest advanced laboratory testing followed by prescribed supplements/drugs, therapeutic nutrition/diets, detox programs, stress management techniques, and hormone balancing, thus making it the future of traditional medicine. The goal is to restore optimal functioning of your physiology and moving you towards greater balance and wellness in your life.
Functional medicine uses a science based approach to identify and address the root causes of disease. It is not a silver bullet or a one size fits all approach. Functional medicine views the body as one integrated system, treating the whole person, not just their symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners take time listening and taking histories to determine interactions between lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors which impact long-term health. You are unique and the approach to bringing your system back into balance is unique to you. Your functional medicine prescription is very different from anyone else’s.
