What You Need to Know about Functional Medicine
Chronic health conditions like digestive problems, allergies, and hormonal issues can affect your mind and body. Living with a chronic health issue, constant fatigue, and stress can make it tough to get through daily life. Functional medical care can help. At Spine Pain Center of North Charleston, SC, our holistic doctor is here to provide the functional medicine needed to get to the root cause of your chronic condition, allowing your body to heal.
How Is Functional Medicine Different?
Standard medicine works to treat the symptoms of disease, but functional medicine is different. Functional care practitioners see the body as a set of related systems. Since the body's inner workings are connected, a problem in one system can cause symptoms in another. Functional medicine understands these connections, allowing care providers to find the root causes of chronic conditions. Functional medicine means treating the root cause of chronic conditions, rather than treating the surface symptoms.
Chronic Disease Management
Functional Medicine is particularly effective in managing chronic conditions like diabetes, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular disease, and gastrointestinal disorders. Addressing underlying causes can lead to improved outcomes and reduced reliance on medications.
Functional Medicine practitioners often collaborate with other healthcare providers to ensure comprehensive and coordinated patient care.
Functional Medicine Care Plan
When you meet with our holistic doctor, you'll discuss your chronic condition and review any triggers you've noticed. You'll also talk through your health history and look for connections that could explain a chronic condition's underlying cause. Your holistic doctor must fully understand your health history to get to the root cause of your health problem.
We will then work with you to implement lifestyle changes to help you overcome your chronic disease's root cause. The lifestyle changes our holistic doctor suggests often include changes to your workout routine, eating habits, and new stress management methods.
