What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is about empowering, engaging, and educating patients to work towards their healthcare goals. Functional Medicine seeks to find the root cause of illness, disease and symptoms by understanding each individual’s lifestyle, environmental influences, biochemical makeup, genetic predispositions in order to customize a treatment plan to work towards optimal health.
Why Functional Medicine?
Per the CDC, chronic disease is among the most common and costly of all health problems (Go To CDC Website Here).
With the rise in chronic disease causing an increase in healthcare costs, functional medicine offers an answer to the problem of increasing chronic diseases and health care costs. Conventional medicine is great for acute and life threatening events, however conventional medicine does not address the root cause of chronic disease. Conventional medicine names the chronic disease and then gives the patient medications. Functional medicine addresses the root cause of chronic disease.
