What Is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is not an either/or method, but rather a true combination of Conventional Medicine and many different alternative and complementary therapies.
It acknowledges the strengths of Conventional Medicine for acute and crisis-care, but also realizes that this approach does not have the tools for preventing and treating chronic diseases. Unlike conventional physicians, we are able to tap into all the tools of healing — drawing from Western, Eastern, alternative, preventative and integrative medical practices — to help our patients heal. By pulling from all of these approaches and by paying special attention to diet, exercise, nutrition, supplementation and the workings of the mind, we’re not just giving patients a Band-Aid, we’re giving them the tools to create sustainable wellness and vitality. To Envision Total Wellness, this is what true healing is all about!
