Functional Medicine appointments are designed to help you:
- Optimize your health and physical performance
- Recover from or prevent a complex chronic illness
- Learn skills that promote quality of life as you go through different life stages
Functional Medicine is a holistic systems-biology approach to identifying and addressing the underlying causes of disease and injury. It addresses the whole person, rather than an isolated set of symptoms with the aim of reversing/preventing complex chronic disease and optimizing health. By looking at the interactions among environmental, lifestyle, and genetic factors that can influence long-term health, performance, and complex, chronic disease, the Functional Medicine practitioner works to support a dynamic balance among the physiological and biochemical processes within an individual. Through a detailed understanding of a patient’s history and their fundamental contributing factors, the Functional Medicine practitioner works to create a personalized plan that allows an individual to achieve their own unique expression of health and vitality.
