Functional Medicine

Two decades ago Functional Medicine became a viable means for physicians to treat chronic or complex illnesses. Functional Medicine Practitioners employ integrative medicine principles to discover and treat the underlying causes of disease. Science-based, Functional Medicine utilizes the laboratory testing of modern mainstream medicine as well as a careful assessment of the patient’s history, including environmental and genetic factors which contribute to the patient’s condition. Unlike the acute care model of traditional western medicine, Functional Medicine does not apply a standard protocol to each problem. This is not “one-size-fits-all” medicine. Through the unique partnership between patient and doctor, Functional Medicine produces a comprehensive plan for maximizing the health of the individual. Beyond alleviating symptoms or slowing the progression of disease, the corrected imbalances and lifestyle changes resulting from the Functional approach promote wellness and vitality for the whole patient.
