Functional Medicine is an emerging model of health care that is born out of necessity. Modern medicine, with all of its heroic interventions, has simply become so bloated with unnecessary elements that it has missed the simple principles that govern true health.
Functional medicine aims to restore that balance. We utilize cutting edge science and advanced diagnostic testing to uncover the often overlooked causes of disease that are having a profound impact on all of our health.
Once we understand the objective evidence, we take a more holistic and natural approach to create a custom tailored program of care that involves targeted supplementation, diet, exercise and other lifestyle modifications to bring the body back into a state of balance and harmony.
Where conventional medicine shines for acute life-threatening situations and trauma, functional medicine shines in treating chronic diseases like diabetes, depression, gut problems, obesity, hormone imbalances and autoimmune conditions. By getting to the root of the problems and engaging the patient in their treatment, functional medicine is playing a huge role in evolving health care for the next century.
