Functional Medicine is where the provider actually does a deep dive to find out WHY a patient is having a health condition. Conventional Medicine simply diagnoses a problem and the solution is drugs, or surgery to remove the ailing body part. These lead to further health conditions.

We often get patients that have been down the path of conventional medicine, have done drugs and surgery and still do not have quality of life. We do tests to find the real WHY, then change lifestyle and supplements to help the body heal as much as possible.

The Functional Medicine Approach

Functional medicine is a systems biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to the individual’s illness.
As the graphic illustrates, a diagnosis can be the result of more than one cause. For example, anxiety can be caused by many different factors, including inflammation. Likewise, a cause like inflammation may lead to a number of different diagnoses, including mental health conditions.

The precise manifestation of each cause depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle. And only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond symptom suppression.
