Traditional medicine, as we know it, is strictly reactionary. The traditional medical system is designed to treat disease — not prevent disease nor optimize health. Functional and Integrative medicine takes a proactive approach by identifying the individual factors that limit productivity and performance. By diagnosing and treating the earliest signs of health decline, or decreased productivity and performance, we can prevent what may become a major medical and physical problem.
Functional medicine uses a systems-oriented approach and engages both the patient and their practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is a new form in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of patient’s today. Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, investigating their histories, background and looking at the interactions among environmental, familial, and lifestyle factors that can influence their health and disease process. Through this process, Functional Medicine supports the individual’s expression of health and vitality.
Functional Medicine enables our providers and other health professionals who have similar beliefs to practice proactively, providing personalized medicine and empowering our patients to take an active role in their own health.
Whether it’s preventative care, or searching out solutions for long-stemming disease process we look at the whole person. We apply this approach to all aspects from the inside out and help our patients reach their goals of feeling and looking fabulous.
With an Integrative, functional approach you will have an extensive and comprehensive look at your system. This approach focusses on diet, lifestyle and imbalances in the body. Rather then a list of drugs you will receive dietary, lifestyle and supplement recommendations to begin to balance your system through medical guidance.
With Functional Medicine you will receive a combination of both holistic and traditional treatments. We believe this is the best approach and will give you the most treatment options for the ultimate in health, wellness and balance.
