A Whole-Person Approach to Healing: Mind body and spirit


Functional Medicine

What is functional medicine?

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach
and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.  It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.  FM practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.  In this way, FM supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.   Click here to see how conventional medicine and functional Medicine differ


How Functional Medicine Changes the Way We do Medicine

  • Functional Medicine offers a powerful new operating system and clinical model for assessment,
    treatment,  and prevention of chronic disease to replace the outdated and ineffective acute-care
    models carried forward from the 20th century.


  • Functional Medicine incorporates the latest in genetic science, systems biology, and understanding
    of how environmental and lifestyle factors influence the emergence and progression of disease.


  • Functional Medicine enables physicians and other health professionals to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine and empowers patients to take an active roll.
