Tired of being treated for your symptoms and not the root cause?

Why Functional Medicine is Better...
 

  • Functional medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

  • 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.

Comparing how conventional medicine and functional medicine treats chronic illness

Why you should consider functional medicine.

Chronic health conditions affect about 50% of all adults. Many people with chronic disease are on the autoimmune spectrum. This spectrum can range from acne or constipation, to fatigue, joint pain, to more serious autoimmune conditions such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.

Sadly, our current healthcare system is offering us very little to combat chronic illness including autoimmune conditions. Doctors prescribe medication to mask the symptoms and not treat the actual cause.

Functional medicine offers real solutions that can improve and influence our long-term health. Functional medicine focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. It views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole person, not just the symptoms of disease. This is because each symptom may be just one aspect of an individual’s illness.
