Functional medicine is an integrative, science-based approach to health care focused on uncovering the ROOT of disease and its related symptoms. It is scientifically shown to reverse chronic illness and provide real, lasting results.
Whereas conventional medicine is known to provide you with a quick fix – typically a short 15-minute visit, followed by a prescription for a pill to conceal or suppress the symptoms – functional medicine assists the body in healing from the inside out. Instead of stopping at the question of WHAT is making someone ill, functional medicine commits to WHY that person may have developed the disease. In fact, our functional medicine team typically spends a minimum of an hour during a first appointment getting to know their patient’s health history and current frustrations; This allows them to gather a full picture of who the patient is so they can create an individualized approach to address each body’s unique needs. Our goal is to get to the root of what is making the patient sick and work to facilitate the reversal of the disease process to heal the damage that has taken place.
Individual lifestyle factors such as nutrition, diet, sleep habits, stress level and digestion all play an important role in finding the root cause of illness. Our functional medicine team works with their patients to unravel the root cause of their disease, empowering them with an individualized roadmap to recovery and create a lifestyle centered towards your personal needs and goals.
If you have been suffering with no help from traditional medicine, it may be time to look to Functional medicine. You are not your diagnosis. You are a whole person with a unique health history, and you deserve answers. Our Functional Medicine program is healing our patients every day through replenishing the vitamins and nutrients that so many of us are missing. The health conditions you’re currently suffering with started with an imbalance in the body. By restoring that balance, your body will begin to heal and move closer towards the way it has been designed to function.
