Functional medicine is a term that gets thrown around a lot these days. To summarize, it is:
the application and testing of your physiology to get to the root cause of any disturbance causing pain, distress, inflammation, and overall imbalanced metabolic function
and the process of correcting the cause through nutraceuticals, diet, and pharmaceuticals if necessary.
What’s important to know is that it is more of an approach to health, than a distinct healing art. As a functional medicine practice,
we strive to get to the cause of your health issue,
not just cover it up with medication or supplements.
Deciphering The Root Cause
Depending on your symptoms and the problem we are trying to solve, getting to the bottom of what is causing your health to breakdown will likely require some testing. This may include a comprehensive blood test, or other unique tests that may lie outside of mainstream allopathic medicine .
Correct From The Core
Once we have located dysfunction that is related to your presentation, we get to work correcting the most upstream aspect of it. This allows us to fix your problem directly from the cause, giving you your health back.
