WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease,
using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.
It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.
Functional medicine shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of medical care to a more patient-centered approach.
It addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
Functional medicine nurse practitioners look at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic diseases.
We use Functional Medicine to:
Understand your individual biochemistry, genes, and environment
Treat YOU, not a disease.
Search for a balanced body, mind, and spirit
Recognize the web-like interconnections of your physiology
Identify health as the presence of positive vitality, not merely the absence of crisis or disease
I believe that personalized preventive and compassionate care is of the utmost importance in helping people achieve their health & wellness goals.
