What does it mean when
we say Functional Medicine?
- A functional medicine mind-body approach to healthcare is a good option if you are frustrated with suppressing symptoms and being told that everything is “normal” despite chronic health issues.
- Functional Medicine embraces and honors individuality. Healing protocols are custom tailored for each clients unique biochemistry, current needs, and life situation.
- Functional lab testing may involve blood, saliva, urine, hair and stool samples, with the results leading to natural protocols and/or products to address the problem, build a healthy lifestyle, and ultimately end the cycle of trial and error.
Education vs. Medication
- I am passionate about helping my clients understand how chronic illnesses develop, as well as guiding them in a new direction to apply health-building principles. I am aware of how limited our current medical paradigm is when it comes to chronic health challenges.
- Do you want to live your life to the fullest? Instead of masking symptoms with medications, functional medicine uncovers the root causes of health issues and treats them naturally.
- Furthermore, deep healing requires us to attend to all aspects of ourselves and our lives that contributed to us falling ill in the first place.
How is Functional Medicine Different?
Addresses Underlying Causes
Once we have identified the causes of your symptoms, we’ll create the best treatment plan possible.
The plan will focus on putting back what’s missing and taking out what’s harming your body, helping you achieve optimal wellness.
Providing Individualized Care
Everything from your genetics to your environment and lifestyle is unique and you need a treatment plan customized just for you.
Functional medicine focuses on thinking outside the box to provide those customized treatments.
Treating With Natural Solutions
Medications can be helpful for certain illnesses, but they can also have serious side effects. Rather than treating each symptom with prescription drugs, functional medicine provides natural alternatives to resolve health issues and not just cover them up.
