Functional Medicine is patient-centered medical healing at its best. Almost always, the cause of the disease and its symptoms is an underlying dysfunction and/or an imbalance of bodily systems. Using scientific principles, advanced diagnostic testing and treatments other than drugs or surgery, we aim to restore balance in the body’s primary physiological processes eventually reducing the symptoms.
WE TREAT THE PERSON AND NOT JUST THE SYMPTOMS.
We first identify the factors responsible for any malfunctioning and then deal with those factors in a way appropriate to the patient’s particular situation.
- Add what’s lacking in the body
- Remove anything that impedes the body from moving toward its optimal state of physiology.
PATIENTS HISTORY is the first most important tool. Listening to the patients will enable is to decide what ADVANCED TESTING is deemed appropriate.
We may use a combination of natural agents i.e. supplements, herbs, nutraceuticals, nutritional and lifestyle changes, spiritual/emotional counseling and pharmaceuticals.
In addition, EDUCATING THE PATIENTS about their condition empowering them to take charge of their own health, ultimately leading to greater compliance and success with treatment.
Functional Medicine treatment options may vary in different patients with similar symptoms.
