What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine looks at the uniqueness of each patient to determine the root cause of illness.

Instead of the “pill for an ill” mentality of traditional medicine, Functional Medicine looks at the uniqueness of each patient to determine the root cause of illness. Your body is a complex network of processes. In order to stay healthy, each process must operate at its best—this means balancing your unique genetic, lifestyle and environmental makeup to keep you healthy. When your systems aren’t able to function as intended, disease or illness can develop.

The underlying causes of your symptoms are treated with a more natural approach in order to promote long-term health and improve overall quality of life.  Because of the extra time and attention to detail required to determine and treat root cause, Functional Medicine services require a membership fee.

Functional and integrative medicine combines familiar approaches from Western medicine with “integrative” or “natural” medical approaches. Each component focuses on preventing disease and includes:

  • Nutritional support
  • Therapeutic diets
  • Exercise
  • Natural supplementation
  • Body detoxification
  • Stress and sleep management
  • Advanced laboratory testing
  • Reversal of cognitive decline
