What Is Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a field pioneered by thought leaders, including a number of MD’s, who saw the need for medical practice to catch up with 50-years of research which says, loud and clear, that something has to change. These thought leaders incorporated the latest nutritional research, genomics, and epigenics to innovate new ways of treating health problems at their molecular or cellular root.
 
Functional Medicine seeks to find the root cause or causes of a condition in order to treat the illness at its source, rather than try to fight symptoms.
Functional Medicine also integrates alternative or integrative health treatment modalities so get the best possible results for patients.
 
Many people who found no relief through conventional medicine finally recovered from their illnesses after receiving Functional Medicine treatment.
Millions of people are afflicted by heart conditions, diabetes, inflammation, arthritis, digestion problems, chronic pain, low energy, or obesity. While conventional medicine excels at repairing injuries, fighting bacterial infections, and more, it also leaves countless people stuck and frustrated with their poor health.
 
That’s because the conventional medical establishment puts minimal focus on important factors such as:
  • shapeCellular-level dysfunction
  • shapeNutrition
  • shapeHormones
  • shapeVitamins
  • shapeEmotional Patterns
  • shapeFamily and Social History
  • shapeThe “Bigger Picture” of How Different Parts of a Person Impact Their Health
  • shapeThe Treatment of Chronic Disease
