Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is the biological process of identifying the root causes of chronic issues. Functional Medicine doctors see the body as connective systems that affect one another.

Individual symptoms or diagnoses can be contributing to a person's overall ailment. Rather than treat one symptom in one body system at a time, Functional Medicine doctors use lab work and extensive patient history to investigate the root cause of the patient's issues.

This approach requires more time with the doctor. There is no magic pill or a quick fix. Much of the treatment in rooting out chronic issues begins with diet and lifestyle changes. We understand the challenges of necessary lifestyle changes and want to ensure you that we will do all we can to support and encourage your journey to health. But we want to empower you and teach you! As one of our patients, you will be expected to do your part to take control of your health.
