Functional Medicine/Nutritional Therapy
Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. It is different from regular medicine and that it focuses less on treating the symptom in concentrates more on treating the aberrant or dysfunctional processes that lead up to the symptom.
One example of this would be a functional medicine evaluation for a person that has chronic fatigue. Instead of giving the person in medicine to be more awake unless tired all the time, functional medicine would do a detailed assessment that might find the person has anemia because of heavy periods. Additionally, the detailed functional assessment may find the person has a sluggish thyroid even though there is no distinct thyroid disease. In functional medicine, nutritional therapies may be given to correct the anemia and even ramp up the sluggish thyroid.
This type of therapy used to be called nutritional therapy. But over the years, functional medicine has become much more sophisticated. Functional medicine uses established medical principles and detailed medical lab assessments to find the cause and treatment. Traditional nutritional therapy relied mostly on anecdotal therapies.
The functional medicine program starts with a detailed lab this assessment find out where the weak points are. Everyone has functional weak points even if they are seemingly healthy. Functional medicine works to improve a person’s weak points so that they may have increased health potential.
If you would like to take a more drug-free health building approach to your healthcare, consider getting a functional medicine assessment.
