What is INTEGRATIVE + Functional Medicine?
Integrative and Functional Medicine is currently the fastest growing medical specialty in the world. This new “joined discipline” offers real answers to medical issues through testing that reveals root problems that cause illnesses.
Integrative and Functional Medicine focuses on re-establishing a person’s unique physiology by analyzing outside factors that impact health and well-being. Stressors from the outside world lead to physiological alterations of the body that can cause harmful disease states. Such outside impactors will harm the human body at the cellular level causing havoc on the physiology. The patient may feel subtle changes. Often unnoticed, these changes lead to the onset of major disease processes.
Integrative and Functional medical doctors takes into consideration the role that behavior, environment, social, spiritual, and stress plays on an individual’s health. Not “alternative” or “holistic” medicine, Integrative and Functional Medicine principles state the physician serves as a partner who guides the patient in treatment after performing a thorough medical history, physical examination, and detailed, speciﬁc laboratory investigations. Good medicine comes from good science. The physician must understand the latest medical research and its beneﬁt to Integrative and Functional Medical practices.
The physician will use various modalities to assist the body to heal its own speciﬁc physiology. All outside factors that affect one’s health are taken into consideration. Treatment modalities are more natural and less intrusive when compared to those used in mainstream medical practice.
Effort is placed on wellness and longevity when exacting a treatment plan.
