“Healing is Temporary…Wellness is permanent.”

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a patient-centered, science-based approach that takes an individualized approach to healthcare. It aims to identify and address the underlying causes of disease rather than just treating symptoms, allowing patients and practitioners to work together to achieve optimal wellness. Functional Medicine practitioners take a detailed look at each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors to develop personalized treatment plans that can lead to improved patient outcomes.

This approach recognizes that one condition can have many different causes, and one cause can result in multiple conditions. By targeting the root cause of disease in each patient, functional medicine treatment focuses on addressing the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
