Functional medicine is a method of re-balancing the body's underlying physiological systems and addressing lifestyle issues that contribute to illness. By following a functional medicine treatment plan, you unlock your biological healing properties. Chronic diseases are resolved naturally and swiftly, often without the need for expensive pharmaceutical medications or invasive operations. In this way, functional medicine offers a different approach to understanding the region of chronic illness and provides us with a new way to address the pandemic of chronic disease we face in the 21st century.
Functional Medicine Practitioners do not treat specific diseases; we deal with underlying health dysfunctions in the patient as a whole. We do not prescribe or alter medicines; we restore health. Our plans work in conjunction with the patients referring doctor, who will determine when and if the patient can decrease or eliminate any medication.
