Functional Medicine is a new paradigm of medical thinking that looks at patterns and systems of function rather than organ-based single disease diagnosis. Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, getting to the root causes that influence your experience of health and disease. It doesn’t just look at an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention and treatment of complex, chronic disease.

Functional Medicine or as we like to call it, “root cause medicine,” is a true partnership with your Doctor. Instead of pharmaceutical band aids given when you get sick or have symptoms, the functional medicine approach is a holistic, whole body approach. Functional Medicine Practitioners use comprehensive assessments and testing to discover why you are not feeling well. The focus is on treating the underlying imbalances in the body and giving it what it needs to heal and prevent disease for a healthy future.
By listening to the patient and learning his or her story, the Functional Medicine practitioner brings the patient into the discovery process and tailors treatments that address the individual’s unique needs. Practitioners consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning and have a direct influence on the rise of chronic disease, such as environmental exposure to toxins.
One of the biggest highlights of Functional Medicine, is the amount of time Providers spend with their patients. Most appointments are usually at least 1 hour long giving them the opportunity to truly listen to you, and get to know you as a person, without ever feeling rushed. Listening to their patient’s history and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health, chronic disease and the daily quality of life.
The focus with functional medicine is much less on prescription medications for treatment options and much more on nutrition, exercise, stress management techniques, detoxification programs and supplement protocols. Functional Medicine believes “food is medicine” and healing is possible when you nourish the body with what it needs. Every “body” is different and it’s important for treatment plans to be tailored to a patients unique needs.
