Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.
Functional Medicine is a science-based approach that addresses the underlying causes of disease and promotes optimal wellness. By addressing the root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of the disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. Like one bad apple can spoil the entire bag, the same way one practitioner delivering substandard care brings a bad reputation to the community. To avoid this, look for the credentials of the practitioner. One of the best credentials is when the practitioner is trained in traditional conventional medicine and has a degree equivalent to MD and has further advanced education in functional medicine. This way they can adapt the best practices from both disciplines.
Functional Medicine uncovers and addresses the underlying root causes of the common conditions that affect a growing number of people—autoimmune diseases, diabetes, obesity, emotional well-being, and digestive issues, to name a few. Functional Medicine’s pragmatic approach offers the potential for achieving unprecedented levels of health restoration and financial savings.
Functional Medicine is a mutually empowering relationship between patient and provider where both share responsibility for creating and implementing the healthcare plan to achieve desired well-being.
