Frequently Asked Questions

Functional medicine is a holistic, patient-centered approach to healthcare that aims to address the root causes of disease rather than simply treating the symptoms. It focuses on the interconnectedness of the body's systems and the influence of factors such as genetics, environment, and lifestyle on health and wellbeing.
While conventional medicine often focuses on diagnosing and treating specific diseases or symptoms, functional medicine takes a more comprehensive approach, examining the patient's entire health history, lifestyle, and environmental factors. It emphasizes prevention, nutrition, and the use of integrative therapies alongside conventional treatments to promote optimal health.
Some core principles of functional medicine include:

Individualized care: Treatment plans are tailored to the unique needs of each patient.
Patient-centered care: The focus is on the patient's overall wellbeing, rather than just the disease.
Addressing root causes: Functional medicine seeks to identify and treat the underlying causes of disease, rather than just managing symptoms.
Integrative approach: Conventional and alternative therapies are used together to achieve the best possible results.
Prevention: A focus on proactive strategies to maintain health and prevent illness.
Functional medicine can be beneficial for a wide range of health conditions, including chronic diseases such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease, and digestive issues. It is also useful for addressing hormonal imbalances, and mental health concerns, and optimizing overall health and wellness.
We use a variety of diagnostic tools, such as comprehensive bio-communication testing which provide you with information that may help you identify individual wellness needs. Identifying items to which you have an unusual response gives you and your wellness advisor insight about health-related conditions that may be keeping you from functioning at a balanced state.

The definition is pretty simple: the smallest dose that will produce the desired outcome.
