Some approaches to medicine might only treat the symptoms of a problem. Functional medicine is different.
Functional medicine care providers work to treat the root cause of problems, rather than simply treating the symptoms without addressing the underlying cause of the disease. Some adults might be living with at least one chronic condition. Functional medicine doesn't just work to improve your immediate well-being--it also works to help support your future health.
What Conditions Can Functional Medicine Help Treat?
Functional medicine views the body as many biological systems working as one. This is different from the symptom-first approach that traditional medicine providers might use.
Functional medicine can treat many chronic health issues, including general fatigue, allergies, digestive problems (including IBS), and more.
Functional Medicine Treatment
A holistic doctor looks at your health as a whole, rather than seeing your conditions as a collection of symptoms. This approach to treatment may involve identification of triggers, symptom monitoring, consideration of allergens, as well as consideration of nutritional and microbiome issues.
Once we discover the underlying cause of your chronic condition using functional medicine techniques, we'll work with you to develop a treatment plan that can help support your well-being. A functional medicine treatment plan recommends lifestyle adjustments that can help you feel your best. Your treatment plan may include changing your nutrition, exercise, and sleep habits, as well as practicing stress reduction techniques.
