Functional medicine is geared towards promoting health and vitality amongst each patient. Growing concerns for lack of complete and quality health care have contributed to the need for the exploration of “whole body,” total care. This article highlights what functional medicine is, what kind of treatments are offered, and how functional medicine can help you.
What Functional Medicine actually is.
Functional Medicine investigates the body as a whole, as opposed to just the symptoms the body is presenting, to identify and treat the root causes of disease. This practice is effective in prevention and treatment through the utilization of diet, nutrition and exercise. Prevent and even reverse chronic conditions by treating the root of the problem.
Lab testing and other diagnostic testing will be done to determine what kind of treatment is necessary for you. Functional medicine utilizes a combination of prescribed drugs (hormonal therapy etc.), botanical medicinal supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, as well as stress management techniques.
