Are you tired of being sick and tired?
Now is the time to address the root cause of health issues rather than just dealing with the symptoms.
Diet and lifestyle can make all the difference in how the body functions, and Functional Medicine is the way to naturally heal the body by addressing the root cause of illness and disease.
What is functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of
many contributing to an individual’s illness.
For example, IBS or IBD can be caused by a variety of different factors such as diet, lifestyle, inflammation and stress. It is the person’s genetic predisposition that determines how their body responds to a stimulus.
A Functional Medicine practitioner looks for the root cause of the disease, using a variety of tools such as history, physical examination, laboratory work, and targeted functional tests.
The treatment involves an individualized diet, supplement and lifestyle program to address the underlying issues.
