Why Functional Medicine Matters
Functional medicine is a comprehensive approach to wellness that examines all the body systems within the context of YOUR personal and environmental experiences.
Functional medicine heals the body by addressing the whole person. We delve in to find any underlying infections or possible toxic exposures. We look at your genetics to determine how to optimize your nutrition and understand your biochemical metabolic functioning. We hunt for any nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxicities. We explore and then tackle the mental stressors that impact your health. We also examine spirituality and the feelings around your health condition. Additionally, by identifying and addressing these issues we can address how these conditions affect our professional and personal relationships. When we are healthy, energetic and free of pain, we can focus and give our best to our lives and the people in them.
All individuals are different. As such, one approach may not work for everyone. We treat each individual client uniquely.
Most often, the symptoms one experiences are interrelated. All our systems are intimately intertwined and connected. If one component is affected, it will inevitably affect the other. By taking this approach, we are able to identify the causes of many underlying illnesses and specifically work to reverse the condition or eliminate it altogether. Chronic conditions are on the rise and in order to properly diagnosis and treat these ailments more than a 15-minute appointment is required. Consequently, we take the time to get to know you. We will spend the time we need to accomplish this. There is no rushing and we don’t have quotas to meet. Each client will receive the well-deserved time and attention they need to address all their health concerns. We obtain advanced laboratory studies that are not part of routine medical laboratory analysis. We use these results to apply a broad understanding of the body and its metabolic processes. Finally, we establish a comprehensive stepwise approach to achieve your best health.
