Functional Medicine , WHAT IS IT?

Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. It seeks to answer the question, “Why are you ill?” so you can receive personalized, effective care for your needs.

Functional medicine providers spend time listening to you and gathering your medical history. We use this information to identify the root cause(s) of the illness, including triggers such as poor nutrition, stress, toxins, allergens, genetics, and your microbiome (the bacteria living in and on your body).

Once we identify the triggers, we can customize a healthy living plan for you. Your plan will address many aspects of your life, from physical needs, including nutrition, exercise, and sleep, to mental and emotional stressors related to social, work, and community life.

Conventional medicine usually treats diseases and conditions with medication, which often has side effects and only relieves the symptoms and not the problem itself. However, it is proven that some of them can be prevented and even treated with natural substances (like plant substrates) and changes in lifestyle that resolve the cause itself.
