WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE AND WHY WE NEED IT?

Functional Medicine is a patient centered approach of looking at “root cause” or underlying dysfunction and or imbalances of the bodily systems. Functional Medicine uses a system oriented approach and engages both the patient and practices in a therapeutic partnership. Functional Medicine restores balance in body’s primary physiological processes using evidenced based medicine, scientific principles, advanced diagnostic testing and complementary treatments. By spending time with our patients, doing excessive intake on histories, looking at interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors can all influence long term health. WE need this type of care because:

Personalized: we listen to your story and address your unique needs. Patient centered care is offered through evidenced based treatments that treat the patient not the disease

Proactive: creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, exercise, and latest lab testing and diagnostic techniques

Participatory: patients are respected, empowered, educated and encouraged to play an active role in the healing process.
