FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE goes against the grain of a typical medical practice by addressing the underlying causes of disease. It is a systems-based approach that better addresses the needs of the individual by asking the question “Why?” - shifting the focus from the condition to the patient.
Functional Medicine is a personalized, systems-oriented model that empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest expression of health by working in collaboration to address the underlying causes of disease.*
The body is a large system, consistently communicating messages back and forth based on multiple factors such as environment, genetics and lifestyle factors (such as toxins, nutrition, physical activity, etc.). Functional medicine treats the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
Think about this:
Is diabetes an Actos deficiency?
Is high blood pressure a Lisinopril deficiency?
Is depression a Prozac deficiency?
Is high cholesterol a Lipitor deficiency?
No, these are NOT drug deficiencies!These are imbalances in the basic biological systems, and these disturbances in the patterns give rise to conditions and chronic disease.
Functional medicine works at the root of the condition (the cause) instead of the fruit of the condition (the symptom).
