Functional medicine seeks to identify and treat the root cause of your symptoms and the disease itself.
Components of the Functional Medicine model:
Individualized and patient-centered.
Spending more time with patients, listening to their stories.
Requiring a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors.
Both conventional and specialty labs are used for identifying markers of health and areas requiring assistance.
Addresses the underlying causes of disease.
One condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
Personalized treatment plans that promote optimal health and wellness.
Taking all of the above into account, patients receive treatments specific to their individual needs.
