What Is Functional Medicine?

Achieving long-term wellness through behavioral, lifestyle, and nutritional changes

Functional medicine treats the body as a dynamic, fully interconnected system, not a collection of siloed parts. In its approach to healing and long-term wellness, functional medicine strives to restore balance by addressing all of the different factors that contribute to your health in a comprehensive, integrated way.

Functional Medicine Asks Why?

The conventional approach to treating chronic conditions is linear: Diagnosis, then prescription. But what happens when you still don’t feel like yourself?

Functional medicine digs deeper to find out why you got sick or feel poorly in the first place. By uncovering the root causes of your symptoms or disease, we can create a plan of action for long-term health that addresses all of the contributing factors, not just a single symptom.

Functional Medicine FAQs

What kind of training do functional medicine providers have? Functional medicine providers undergo an additional three years of study and testing after their professional health care degree. Only the highest licenses in health care are able to train in functional medicine (i.e., MD, DO, DC, NP, ND, PA, RN, etc.). The focus is understanding a profound development of the root causes of disease, interactions between environment, lifestyle, and genetics, and how all body systems interact to create health or disease.
