Functional medicine is an individualized, systems based model that focuses on determining and treating the root cause of disease. Patients and practitioners work as a team to achieve the highest expression of health.
This model incorporates the latest in genetic science, systems biology and the understanding of how lifestyle factors and environment influence the development and progression of disease.
Naturopathic physicians who specialize in functional medicine educate patients about their condition and empower them to be an active participant in their own health care.
Functional medicine uses routine and specialized laboratory tests that are very effective in pinpointing the root cause of disease and the most cutting edge, natural therapeutics are used to achieve the best possible outcome and help each patient return to a highly functioning, optimal state of wellness.
