Functional Medicine is an integrative and complimentary (holistic) healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the biochemically unique aspects of each patient and then individualizing interventions designed to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.

It takes into consideration fundamental physiological processes, environmental factors, and genetic predispositions that influence health and disease.  Interventions are aimed at treating the 'root cause' of manifested problems rather than treating symptoms in isolation from their root causes.

Foundational Principles of Functional Medicine

  • Science-based medicine that connects emerging/cutting-edge research to clinical practice
  • Biochemically-based and individually tailored according to genetic and  environmental uniquenesse
  • Dynamic BALANCE of internal and external factors that affect total functioning of the human organism
  • Recognition of the web-like connections existing among the body's physiological
  • processes that affect overall functionality
  • Intense focus on Health (Wellness) as positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease
  • Promotion of organ reserve (function) for as long as possible
