What is Functional Medicine?
The human body can function properly if supplied with its essential nutrients. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease by determining what the body is lacking, and supplying it with the essential nutrients through diet, supplementation, and natural therapies. Functional medicine does not cover up or pacify symptoms, it aims to identify the root cause and heal the body without the use of prescription medications. Nutrition, exercise, stress management, environmental factors, and mental health are all determinants of our overall health. When optimized through functional medicine, our bodies can function normally.
Hallmarks of a functional medicine approach include:
• Patient-centered care
• An integrative, science-based healthcare approach
• Integrating best medical practices for each individual
• Lab tests including: Micronutrient Panels, Food Sensitivity Tests, GI Testing (including leaky gut), Hormone Panels, Heavy Metals, Environmental Allergies, Mycotoxins, Neural Health Testing, Thyroid Panels, Tick-borne & Lyme Tests, Cardiac Health, Metabolic Panels
Advanced and state-of-the-art functional laboratory technologies are of extreme value to help connect the dots in the discovery piece that is unique to functional medicine. Functional lab testing looks between the lines to find imbalances before the development of symptoms and diseased states. We will work together to develop a unique plan that has you feeling happy, successful and well-balanced!
