Functional Medicine

Is Functional Medicine Right for You?

Functional medicine can be a valuable approach to healthcare for many individuals, but whether it's right for you depends on your health goals, preferences, and specific health conditions. Once you choose functional medicine, you can work with a healthcare provider who sees the body as a set of connected systems. At Spine Pain Center in Mount Pleasant, SC, our functional medicine team is here to provide the care you need to help you feel your best.


What Is Functional Medicine?

Typical healthcare works to treat symptoms, often with medication. Functional medicine looks at the body as a whole and works to treat the root cause of health issues. Many people with chronic conditions find that using only oral medication leaves worsening symptoms or the onset of a new chronic illness. Since functional medicine works to treat disease at its source, you can eliminate problems for good instead of just covering up the effects of a chronic condition.

Conditions Treated with Functional Medicine

Functional medicine views the body as a collection of biological systems, allowing holistic practitioners to understand the development of chronic disease. When our holistic doctor learns more about your lifestyle and health history, we can better understand the root cause of your condition. This root cause means to boost your well-being while working to get rid of your chronic condition rather than treating the symptoms.

Our holistic doctor can treat many health conditions, including digestive issues (like IBS), allergies, fatigue, prediabetes, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, adrenal, thyroid, hormonal, and more. Functional medicine may help you understand that easily fixed issues with lifestyle modifications cause your chronic condition. Our holistic doctor may recommend sleep, exercise, nutrition, and stress management changes to help you recover from chronic conditions.
