What is Functional Medicine?
Does the doctor tell you everything looks normal? That there’s no reason for you have to have the complaint you do? Time to try a new approach to addressing your health.
The Institute For Functional Medicine says: “By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health.”
At our practice, we focus on all aspects of wellness and do not prescribe medications. Hence, we felt it better to describe our functional medicine approach as functional wellness.
