Integrative Approaches to Optimizing Health
Functional Medicine is individualized, science-based medicine that focuses on finding the root cause of your symptoms. These symptoms have been shown to be directly related to, and influenced by, diet and lifestyle. Recent and overwhelming evidence shows that addressing the root cause of illness can help individuals normalize function and reverse disease.
Evaluations usually include standard and advanced blood-work, as well as cutting-edge genetics, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal imbalances, hormone and neurotransmitter assessments. Treatment plans will focus on treating the causes of your symptoms through repairing the gut flora and digestive function, replenishing nutrient deficiencies, supporting detoxification processes, rebalancing hormones, balancing immune function and controlling inflammation. All of these areas can be addressed with good nutrition, stress management, sleep hygiene and exercise programs.
