Functional Medicine

Personalized Approach to Wellness

Functional medicine, also referred to as integrative or metabolic medicine, is a personalized approach to health and wellness that uses the body’s own biochemical processes to promote well-being. This is a modern integrative, scientific approach to healthcare for men and women that uses natural resources to:

  • Improve Immune System Function and Defense Against Disease
  • Be Proactive Against Diseases of Aging (such as Diabetes)
  • Promote Better Health and Well Being
  • Prevent DNA Damage and Promote Longevity using a combination of Hormone Balancing, Detoxification, and Energetic/ Spiritual Health.

Instead of focusing on treating the symptoms, functional medicine aims to treat the underlying causes of chronic disease. This is done through holistic, patient-centered care, where the primary focus is on treating the whole patient and restoring well-being.

Treats:

  • Overall Wellness

Duration:

  • 30-40 Minutes

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 a comprehensive treatment route for most chronic diseases. With the proper medical support, many chronic diseases are preventable or reversible. Functional medicine addresses internal and external factors that influence our well-being to find and treat the underlying cause of chronic disease. Holistic health is achieved with integrative medicine. These factors include:

  • Diet

  • Emotional Stability
  • Spiritual Needs
