You may have seen on our website that we practice functional medicine. But what exactly is functional medicine, and how can it help you? Here are some interesting things you should know about this unique approach to your overall health.
Functional Medicine Defined
In functional medicine, it is assumed that there could be many root causes of a disease, illness, or condition. Only by exploring all of the potential causes for a condition can the condition be successfully treated. The idea behind it is that if you don’t treat the root cause, the symptoms will only persist or change, but never fully cease.
How This Approach Differs
In traditional western medicine, symptoms are often treated before the root cause is discovered. This can sometimes lead to taking medications or going through treatments that are not necessarily the right course of treatment. With functional medicine, the root cause is explored before treatment truly begins, which means that you will have answers to your condition and be able to treat it successfully.
What It Can Do for You
Functional medicine can change the way you look at your overall health. It can help you address health concerns that may have previously been difficult to diagnose and treat. Functional medicine can also give you a different and unique approach to your health.
