Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each person, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological and structural balance.

Our approach is to take the time to collaboratively understand, assess and care for the whole person—integrating the physical, energetic, mental/emotional and spiritual aspects of life.

There are seven basic principles underlying functional medicine:

  1. Science based medicine that connects the emerging research base to clinical practice
  2. Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness
  3. Patient-centered care rather than disease-focused treatment
  4. Dynamic balance of internal and external factors that affect total functioning
  5. Web-like interconnections among the body’s physiological processes also affect every aspect of functionality
  6. Health as positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease
  7. Promotion of organ reserve.
