Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.
This individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach requires a detailed understanding of the genetic, biochemical, and life style factors that contribute to the development of a disease. By addressing the root cause, rather than focusing only on the symptoms, we can identify the lifestyle changes required to create personalized treatment plans that lead to improved outcomes.
Examples of Functional Medicine evaluation include:
• Life style evaluation
• Comprehensive nutritional status
• Environmental toxin evaluation
• Microbiome analysis.
