Functional Medicine Determines How and Why an illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.
The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing the root cause, rather than the symptoms, the practitioner can identify the complexity of the disease. In Functional Medicine one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
