What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging in patient-centered care. This approach promotes health beyond simply the absence of disease. By taking the time to listen to the patient and learn their particular story, this allows the doctor to create treatment plans that address the individual’s unique needs including but not limited to helping them succeed in taking control of their healthcare. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just isolated acute or chronic sets of symptoms.
