FM seeks to identify & address the root causes of disease, it treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.
Functional Medicine seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health, weight loss and vitality for each individual. Thus a tailor made treatment (vs a one approach to all) is put together by our qualified practitioners to fit you and your needs.
As Functional Medicine Practitioners, we guide our clients with regard to lifestyle choices which contribute to the emotional and physical states within their minds and bodies. We look at diet, exercise, hormones, supplements … and living a life full of zest and excellent health and vitality. Functional / Integrative medicine is a science-based comprehensive, holistic approach to health. It focuses less on disease states and symptom control, but aims to understand why the dysfunction has established itself in the body in the first place. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning. Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what is sometimes considered “alternative” or “integrative” medicine. It creates a focus on prevention and healing through therapeutic nutrition, exercise; targeted supplements, detoxification programs and stress-management techniques.
