Functional Medicine


Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine.  Functional medicine shifts the focus from the traditional disease-centred focus to a patient-centred approach.  Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

Functional practitioners spend time to evaluate interaction amongst genetics, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic diseases.

Traditional medicine works wonders for acute care.  When a bone is broken, a physician sets it and it mends without misshap.  Unfortunately chronic disorders require more than a quick fix.  Most often the causes are life style situations, and if these are not brought into consideration, the chronic symptoms can not be alleviated with success.
