Functional Medicine

Whereas Conventional Medicine is based more on a disease-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just a set of symptoms. The philosophy is that without addressing emotional, physical or spiritual harmony, the body will not work to its upmost. With the goal of restoring balance and optimum health, Functional Medicine doctors also assess diet, imbalances in inflammation, hormones, gut flora, exercise patterns, traumas, stress, lifestyle, exposures to toxins, and genetic makeup.
