As medicine evolves over time, healthcare providers finally realize that the practice goes beyond simply prescribing a medication based off a series of symptoms. Our health is much more complex than that. Today, we see that our bodies are an integrated system. One condition can have more than one root cause. Lasting relief and optimal health lie in addressing the entire person, rather than just the symptom. It demands a holistic approach to total wellness, which is the root of functional medicine.
What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine focuses on identifying the root cause of a health concern. This is done to resolve symptoms at their source. It is a highly-scientific and personalized approach that treats the whole person. It requires a health-enhancing plan that leads to long-term wellness. Functional medicine stems from the belief that every health concern is due to a variety of unique personal factors, including:
It’s only by considering all of these factors that an effective diagnosis can be made for and total wellness can be achieved.
