Are you ready for Functional Medicine?What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a medical care approach that seeks to take a root cause look at what might be causing dis-ease and symptoms to develop. By looking deeper into the complexity of your body systems to uncover the source of your symptoms, we have a better chance to reverse the problem and restore health.

Functional Medicine is a type of care which demands understanding and participation from the patient.  To meet that demand, more time is spent listening to your story.  Functional medicine will teach you what might be blocking your own natural health from rising to the surface.  Through education on nutrition, lifestyle, and environmental exposures you are nurtured back to your optimal wellness.  In some instances we use supplements and medications to guide your body back to wellness.

Achieving functional wellnessFunctional Medicine is not about a ‘quick fix’, but is best suited to manage complex chronic symptoms.  Dysfunction that likely took years to develop would be expected to take weeks or even months before you are turned toward wellness.

Functional medicine is the type of medical care that is driving innovative clinical research at the Cleveland Clinic.  For more information visit The Institute for Functional Medicine.

Is Functional Medicine right for me?

Functional Medicine is right for anyone who is willing to take part in maintaining or restoring their optimal level of wellness.

Please understand that it may take a little time and some effort.  A functional wellness treatment plan may recommend that you alter your eating habits, your stressors and change some of your lifestyle habits for the best possible results.  Nutraceutical supplements and medications are often used to enhance function for your total wellness.

If you are willing to invest time in your health beyond the effort of swallowing a daily medication, then you are a great candidate to experience the full power of Functional Medicine!
