Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.
In other words, we look for the cause of your condition through testing and analyzing your diet and lifestyle. This gives us an idea of the deficiencies and causes that we can address to help your body heal through food, supplementation, as well as lifestyle changes. Conventional medicine does not address these areas of your health and often leads to unresolved symptoms and disease that Functional Medicine can treat.
Our approach starts with a systematic assessment and consultation to find out exactly how your body is functioning and dis-functioning. Our "Trust Your Gut" program aims to heal your gastrointestinal microbiome which tends to be the root of many disease processes that conventional medicine has trouble addressing.
