Use diet, nutrition, and lifestyle to address root causes of illness
Functional Medicine is a model of care that is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach. It addresses the underlying causes of disease and goes beyond just treating symptoms. Functional medicine recognizes and respects the complex integration of our body systems. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors. That information allows patients and practitioners to work together to direct personalized treatment plans.
Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual. Only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond the suppression of symptoms.
