Functional medicine is a whole system approach to treating chronic conditions. Functional medicine considers all aspects of your history, conditions, and your lifestyle to find solutions to what causes your symptoms, rather than to just treat the symptoms. If you have had unsuccessful treatments by doctors and specialists in the past, you should consider functional medicine.
Finds the Root of Your Symptoms
Functional medicine believes in finding the reasons for a person’s symptoms, rather than just treating the symptoms themselves. Functional medicine considers that if the root of the problem does not get treated, the symptoms will continue to surface. This is the case with many traditional treatments that are unsuccessful for chronic conditions.
A Solution for Chronic Illnesses
Many times people don’t have luck with traditional treatment of chronic illnesses because their doctors tend to treat the symptoms or don’t take the time to understand how different parts of the body work together. This is why someone who has seen countless doctors and specialists without success can find relief from functional medicine.
An Individualized Approach to Medicine
Functional medicine understands the needs for an individualized approach to treatment. No two people are alike, so their treatments shouldn’t be either. We each have different medical histories, diets, exercise routines, injuries, conditions, and lifestyles. An individualized approach to treatment takes into account everything unique about us and how we can better treat the condition, not just the symptoms, that we are suffering from.
Conditions That Can Find Relief From Functional Medicine
- Autoimmune diseases
- Thyroid dysfunction
- And many other chronic conditions!
