The future of medicine is here, and it’s all about you. Functional Medicine shifts the focus from disease-centered to patient-centered care by paying close attention not only to what your body needs today, but also by exploring your own unique expression of health and vitality longterm.
The result? Better health for people who want more out life. True wellbeing and prevention of disease instead of simply reacting when you’re already sick!
Health vs. Disease oriented
Modern biomedical models focus solely on defining disease states or testing treatments. In Functional Medicine, the emphasis is placed on your needs, not only today, but longterm, to provide comprehensive care that will lead you toward optimal wellness through prevention rather than simply treating symptoms after they arise.
Patient vs. doctor focused
Have you ever felt unseen, unheard or simply dismissed by your doctor? Would you prefer to get answers rather than prescriptions that only mask your symptoms? We will take the time to listen to you and do our best to get to the bottom of your symptoms, and set you up for a healthy future.
Recognizes your unique individual health
There’s no one else just like you. We understand that you are an individual and there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach to your health. Our treatments are tailored to your needs.
Your body is complex and your health is best when all of the systems are working in harmony — endocrine, digestive, neurological, hormonal, immune, etc. We look at the big picture when deciding how best to address your specific issues.
Root cause vs symptoms
Did you know that joint pain, constipation, high cholesterol, depression and heavy menstrual periods can all be symptoms of an under-active thyroid? Hypothyroidism often goes undiagnosed, because the physician only looks at the symptom and not the underlying cause. We look for the weak link and work to restore harmony to your entire body.
When your body is in balance you’re better equipped to handle whatever life throws at you – physically, mentally and emotionally. Symptoms, if left untreated, become chronic issues that erode your health over time and set you up for disease. Let us help you get healthy and stay healthy.
Interestingly, Functional Medicine uses the same approach seen in the time-tested modality of Chinese medicine. Maintaining health is prioritized in order to minimize disease. When disease occurs, seeking the root cause and treating you as a whole person is key. Combining the two modalities can make an elegant and powerful system for your wellbeing.
Find the root. Feel better.
Infertility is not a root cause of the inability to conceive and carry a healthy baby to term. Something deeper is going on. Find the source and treat that.
High blood pressure is never a root cause of headaches. Something deeper is driving the blood pressure up. Find the source and treat that.
If you’re the type of person who delegates your wellbeing to doctors, then we may not be a good fit. If you prefer a collaborative approach where we listen to you and work together in your best interest, then you’re exactly where you need to be.
