Health is Personal, Functional Medicine Should Be Too

We use biochemical individuality to assess the needs of each patient independently. This allows us to check any personal variations in metabolic function that develop due to genetic or environmental causes. Integrative medicine focuses on the patient’s quality of life. We understand that health cannot be measured through the absence of disease, but instead, the evaluation of your health through your overall well-being. We can do this through focusing on positive vitality in each of our patients. This is a holistic perspective towards health, one that acknowledges the orchestrated connection of a body as one singular unit. When you approach your health holistically, it becomes possible to weigh the connection between our fundamental physiological processes and environmental factors. The goal of functional and integrative medicine is to offer an alternative treatment route for most chronic diseases. With the proper medical support, many chronic diseases are preventable or reversible.
