Functional Medicine is an individualized approach that is focused on finding the cause of disease. It is a science based, patient centered practice that involves specifically selected testing, careful history of patient, family, environment and occupation, and involves participation of the patient in all aspects of the discovery process.
Functional Medicine respects biological individuality and appreciates the interconnections of the physiological functions of the body. Time is taken to explore diet, nutrients, exercise, physiological and psychological challenges. Bringing all of the information together, determining the focus of treatment and returning the body to optimal function is the art of medicine.
