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 in a variety of areas. 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 energy / spiritual health.

Instead of focusing on treating various symptoms, functional medicine practitioners aim to treat the underlying causes of chronic disease. This is done through a holistic, patient-centered approach to care, where the primary focus is on treating the whole patient and restoring well-being across biological and mental health care.

Treats:

  • Overall Wellness

Duration:

  • 30-40 Minutes

Health is Personal, Your Functional Medicine Approach Should Be Too

We use multiple biochemical tests as well as a medical review and assessment of lifestyle factors 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 overall quality of life. We understand that health cannot be measured solely through the absence of disease, but instead, through the evaluation of your health with an eye toward optimal wellness. We can do this by 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 a singular, complex, interconnected 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.

Holistic health is achieved with integrative medicine. These factors include:

  • Diet
  • Nutrition
  • Environmental Exposures
  • Stress
  • Exercise / Sleep Habits
  • Emotional Stability
  • Spiritual Needs
  • Balanced Hormones
  • Detoxification
