FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine.

It is commonly called, the science of “why”. Functional lab testing is the cornerstone of functional medicine. Functional lab testing is used to assess the overall function of your body with an optimal range of comparison vs the standard range. It also looks beyond traditional diagnostic testing to discover the root causes of inflammation, food sensitivity, hormonal imbalances, and establish an individualized plan of action for each patient. Instead of looking for and treating the symptoms of disease, functional medicine principles blend very well with those of Eastern Medicine as both look at networks of function and a number of factors that are contributing to the dysfunction in your body.
