Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both the patient and their practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is a new form in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of patient’s today. By shifting from the traditional disease-centered focus of practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, investigating their histories, background and looking at the interactions among environmental, familial, and lifestyle factors that can influence their health and disease process. Through this process, Functional Medicine supports the individual’s expression of health and vitality.
Functional Medicine enables our providers and other health professionals who have similar beliefs to practice proactively, providing personalized medicine and empowering our patients to take an active role in their own health.
Whether it’s preventative care, or searching out solutions for long-stemming disease process we look at the whole person. We apply this approach to all aspects from the inside out and help our patients reach their goals of feeling and looking fabulous.
