What Is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine Is The Science Of Creating Health, By Treating The Whole System, Not Just The Symptoms.

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. It Requires A Detailed Understanding Of Each Patient’s Genetic, Biochemical, And Lifestyle Factors And Leverages That Data To Direct Personalized Treatment Plans That Lead To Improved Patient Outcomes.

By Addressing Root Cause, Rather Than Symptoms, Practitioners Become Oriented To Identifying The Complexity Of Disease. They May Find One Condition Has Many Different Causes And, Likewise, One Cause May Result In Many Different Conditions. As A Result, Functional Medicine Treatment Targets The Root Cause Of Disease In Each Individual.

"YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT" well that turns out to be true. As well what you get exposed to and how your body responds to these exposures. All this can affect how you age, how you think and how we feel.
