Determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the “root causes” of disease for each individual. The Functional Medicine Model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlining cause of disease and promote optimal wellness.
The concept of Functional Medicine requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, hormonal and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing “root cause”, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
