Functional Medicine is patient focused and not disease focused. For instance, we are not treating a patientâ€™s Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) we are assessing for the weaknesses and imbalances in the patients physiology to try and understand why the patient has RA.
Together we will work on discovering and correcting the underlying cause of a disease process or dysfunction so the body can in turn return to a state of health and wellness.
The focus of functional medicine is less on the condition and more on identifying and removing the underlying cause and the obstacles that block healing, and improving existing physiological systems. Patients that have a condition who choose to use Functional Medicine will have their condition treated but will also achieve a high quality of life because the focus is on the whole person and not the disease.
We offer a personalized, patient-centered approach to assessing, preventing and treating complex chronic health problems. Our goal is to identify dysfunctions and imbalances in the physiology of the individual. We take the time to delve into the details of the intricate and interconnected biochemical framework that comprises each of our bodies. We utilized a number of diagnostic tests if needed; including but not limited to blood work, comprehensive stole analysis, and saliva studies.
