What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is 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!

A Functional Medicine Approach

Functional Medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease.

Functional-Medicine
  • Patient-centered care. The focus of functional
    medicine is on patient-centered care, promoting health
    as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease.

     

  • An integrative, science-based healthcare approach.
    Functional Medicine practitioners look “upstream”
    to consider the complex web of interactions in the
    patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead
    to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is
    considered, along with both internal (mind, body and
    spirit) and external (physical and social environment)
    factors that affect total functioning.

     

  • Integrating best medical practices. Functional
    Medicine integrates traditional Western medical
    practices with what are sometimes considered
    “alternative” or “integrative” medicine, creating a
    focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and
    exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and
    other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed
    combinations of drugs and/or botanical medicines,
    supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs,
    or stress-management techniques.
