For most Americans, going to the doctor is something that you just don’t do unless you have to. You go to the doctor when you don’t feel well or have been injured, get your Band Aid, and go about your business. But what do you do when you have chronic diseases and symptoms that just don’t seem to go away?
That is where functional medicine comes in. Through the use of functional medicine, we can discover the root causes of the chronic conditions you are dealing with. Once that root cause has been found and treated, you will begin to feel better, and your chronic diseases may at least decrease in severity.
So what is functional medicine exactly? It is called “functional” because it comprises tests that evaluate the common systems of the body that make it function normally. As these systems and key triggers are tested, a full picture of your health can come through. This more complete picture, combined with integrative medicine, can lead to a significant reduction in symptoms.
If you have a chronic illness such as diabetes, Crohn’s disease, or even mood and anxiety disorders, functional medicine may be able to eliminate or decrease your symptoms or conditions. Contact us today to schedule your appointment to learn more.
