What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying root causes of disease whereas conventional medicine will utilize medications to treat the symptom. Functional Medicine understands that if one system is not functioning properly, it creates a domino affect and other systems need to be addressed. Our care is truly holistic in that we address all systems and lifestyle factors.

For example if you come in with fatigue and brain fog, we are going to look at all the possible causes of brain fog and fatigue that include thyroid imbalance, adrenal fatigue, autoimmune disease, GI imbalance, nutritional deficiencies, toxicity, excess stress.

Functional Medicine focuses on how one’s genetics are influencing their health. We understand that no two people are alike and therefore our treatment plans are individualized to each person base on their genetics, history, symptoms, and test results.

Functional Medicine seeks to identify and address the root cause of disease in a holistic manner.  The body is viewed as one integrated system whereas conventional medicine views the body as independent systems utilizing

medical specialties for each organ/system affected.
