What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. I figure out why you are experiencing the symptoms or disease you have, and how the body is creating those. By doing that, I can help those systems work better.
It is focused on the ‘function’ of physiological systems of your body.
Each symptom or diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness and decrease in functioning of the body.
My goal is not just treating a disease, you may have, but optimizing functioning of the body. It is a science, biochemistry, physiology, epi-genetic based method of healthcare.
As we all know, health is not just the absence of disease.
Health is being able to function the best you can.
