Functional Medicine is patient-centered health care at its best. Practitioners address the whole person, their story and experiences and not just an isolated set of symptoms. To determine the root cause of disease, we must investigate and understand how factors such as genetics, environment and lifestyle influences long-term health and chronic disease. A comprehensive intake procedure includes lab tests, a review of current medications and supplements and examining the existing diet. Cutting-edge diagnostic testing, natural treatments and integrative practices help the patient move towards wellness. Practitioners work together with other healthcare professionals to ensure clients get the best healthcare possible.
