Functional Medicine Philosophy
Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.
The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing root causes, rather than symptoms, practitioners identify the complexity of disease complex. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one root cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
