What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic diseases.
- Patient-centered care providing a tailored assessment and treatment plan.
- Integration of information utilizing a patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle to determine causation.
- Focusing on prevention through nutrition, diet and exercise; using laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; combined with supplements, therapeutic diets and stress-management techniques to promote ultimate health.
The focus of my practice is to educate, empower and provide personalized healthcare. It is important to understand and agree that we use lifestyle and dietary interventions to manage medical conditions. It is our intent to approach your health with the goal of treating the causes and thus improving function. In choosing Functional Medicine you are selecting to combine the use of traditional medicine with complementary and alternative medicine to manage your health.
