What is Functional Medicine?
The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. What we do is very unique compared to a traditional doctors office. Functional-Integrative medicine looks at all body systems and how they work together. We take into account your history, lifestyle, stress level, your environment, family history, and many other factors to get an understanding of your overall all health. We then use specialized lab testing to get a picture of how your body is functioning. Just like a dentist specializes in teeth, functional /integrative medicine specialize in getting to the root cause of your problems. Functional/Integrative medicine is about finding the underlying cause.
Most providers are trained to look only in specific places for the answers, using the same familiar labs or diagnostic tests. Yet, many causes of illness cannot be found in these places. The usual tests do not look for food allergies, hidden infections, environmental toxins, mold exposures, nutritional deficiencies and metabolic imbalances.
We use a variety of innovative testing techniques and procedures to help our patients prevent illness and recover from many chronic and difficult to treat conditions. Highly skilled in evaluating, assessing and treating chronic problems such as fibromyalgia, fatigue syndromes, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory disorders, mood and behavior disorders, memory problems and other chronic, complex conditions. We also focus on the prevention and treatment of heart disease, diabetes, dementia, hormonal imbalances and digestive disorders.
Our Goal: Help people take control of their health and wellness. We will do this by focusing on the person as an individual. Taking time to get to know that persons story. With this, knowing that each individual's needs are different from another’s.
