Functional Medicine integrates conventional and complementary medicine by combining the best of both approaches to address the underlying causes of disease and chronic illness and promote optimal health. It recognizes the importance of conventional medical practices, such as diagnosing and treating acute illnesses, and incorporates evidence-based complementary therapies, such as nutrition, lifestyle modification, and stress management. This approach takes into account your unique circumstances, including genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors, to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses the root cause of the condition and promotes overall health and well-being. The aim of functional medicine is to address the complex interplay of factors that contribute to chronic illness and to empower you to take an active role in your own health and healing.
