Functional Medicine Overview

By viewing your body as an integrated system, functional medicine discovers the underlying causes of chronic medical conditions, while conventional medicine focuses on suppressing the symptoms. Functional medicine addresses you as a whole, not an isolated set of systems and symptoms.

Functional medicine is a holistic and patient-centered approach to healthcare that is collaborative and considers environmental and lifestyle factors when determining the best course of action.

AREAS THAT CAN BE ADDRESSED WITH FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

Skin Health

Conventional medicine excels at categorizing symptoms, determining a diagnosis, and treating ailments with medication or surgery. When a situation is life-threatening, this approach is ideal and very much needed. When it comes to skin health, however, patients can benefit from a more holistic philosophy that takes into consideration all aspects of their lives, not just the presenting symptoms of blemishes, redness, acne, or poor skin texture. Functional medicine gets to the root causes of skin imperfections, delving into diet, sleep, autoimmune disorders, inflammation, stress, and other factors that might be relevant. 

Gut Health

Functional medicine centers around a holistic approach to treat the whole system, not just the superficial symptoms of illness and poor health. It takes into consideration all aspects of the patient’s medical history, genetics, lifestyle, and personal goals to deliver an optimized treatment plan for total wellness.

Functional medicine looks at the gut microbiome to identify potential sources contributing to poor health.  Many patients have underlying conditions such as inflammation, food sensitivities, autoimmune disorders, insulin resistance, joint pain or inflammation, memory loss, even obesity that can be improved with proper restoration of the gut microbiome.  

Anti-Aging

Functional medicine takes a holistic approach to treat multiple symptoms simultaneously, so the patient can enjoy an enhanced quality of life and peace of mind. If you are experiencing perimenopausal or menopausal-related concerns, including cognitive decline, functional medicine is an excellent way to streamline your treatment.
