WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Functional Medicine is a systems-based medical approach that goes beyond treating symptoms, and instead restores health by addressing the individual’s root causes of disease.
The Functional Medicine model, practiced at such prestigious medical centers as The Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Functional Medicine, offers a patient-centered, science-based approach that treats the individual, not just their illness.
This approach relies on a partnership between patient and practitioner, and a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical and lifestyle factors which are evaluated through an extensive intake and advanced lab panels. The practitioner then leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By focusing on the root cause, rather than symptoms, functional medicine practitioners are experts at identifying and treating the complexity of disease.
For example, they may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may produce many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine practitioners are able to detect ailments earlier, resulting in more effective interventions that extend lives, prevent chronic conditions and give patients back their power of health.
