What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a science-based approach to patient care that integrates additional methodologies into an overarching treatment plan, focusing on the root cause of medical issues. Functional medicine retains the benefits of traditional medical tests, knowledge, and care, while expanding the investigatory process and treatments to more holistic approaches that can be used side by side for a more comprehensive approach to treatment.

What makes this approach desirable?

Functional medicine is personalized, precision medicine, focused on each individual’s unique biochemical patterns. It seeks to address the root cause of illness or discomfort so each patient receives specific treatment for their unique circumstances. This personalized approach examines both scientific and environmental factors to go past treating just the symptoms. The goal is to identify and address the underlying cause(s) of dysfunction and correct imbalances as directly as possible.

A functional medicine practitioner will get to know you, asking questions about your lifestyle and day-to-day activities. They may also run a variety of lab tests. Since this type of treatment is based on you as an individual, the practitioner will seek to gain a clear picture of what may be contributing to your disease/illness or pain above and beyond the myriad of symptoms you are experiencing. Unlike the old model of the traditional doctor/patient relationship, functional medicine practitioners seek to partner with their patients and work together to find solutions that make sense for the person.

Who can benefit from functional medicine treatments?

Functional medicine can be used in a wide variety of different circumstances. It can be very beneficial for those who are suffering from chronic health conditions or who need help with pain management. Some of the conditions that can be treated with functional medicine include:

Functional medicine is an excellent choice for patients who feel they are not achieving their health goals despite treatment with medications and other standard therapies from a conventional medical practitioner. Functional Medicine benefits patients who seek to find the root cause of their problems through a research-based medical approach that goes beyond conventional medical therapies but who aren’t comfortable relying only on alternative medicine for treatment. Functional medicine practitioners utilize the scientific approach, but will also employ other techniques as applicable to the individual patient. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach in functional medicine, as each treatment plan is highly personalized and is structured to benefit each patient and their unique circumstances.
