What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is a way for patients to discover answers not often addressed in the traditional medical model. It is a personalized and holistic approach to understand the underlying factors of complex chronic disease states. This approach takes into account the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of one’s health with the ultimate goal of healing the disease state to restore health.
Functional medicine helps patients who are experiencing a multitude of symptoms; such as, stress, insomnia, fatigue, hormone imbalance, mood swings, GI symptoms as well as other symptoms that cannot be explained by traditional medicine. The goal is to support the body’s innate healing ability rather than masking symptoms only.
