Functional medicine supports the body’s natural healing processes by identifying and addressing the underlying causes of disease, rather than just treating symptoms.
At One Wellness, we take into account the complexity of the human body and recognize that health is not simply the absence of disease, but rather a state of optimal function and well-being. To achieve this state, we focus on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease and restoring the body’s natural balance.
The following are some of the ways that functional medicine supports the body’s natural healing processes:
- Identifying and addressing nutrient deficiencies: A functional medicine approach considers the role of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in maintaining health and supports the body’s natural healing processes by replenishing these vital nutrients through diet and supplementation.
- Reducing inflammation: Inflammation is a natural response to injury or infection, but chronic inflammation can lead to a host of health problems. We use a variety of techniques, such as dietary changes, supplementation, and lifestyle modifications, to reduce inflammation and support the body’s natural healing processes.
- Balancing hormones: Hormonal imbalances can lead to a range of health problems, including fatigue, mood changes, and weight gain. We evaluate and address imbalances in hormones, such as cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone, to support the body’s natural healing processes.
- Improving gut health: A healthy gut microbiome is critical for overall health and well-being. We address imbalances in gut bacteria and support the body’s natural healing processes by using dietary changes, probiotics, and other treatments to improve gut health.
- Reducing stress: Chronic stress can weaken the immune system and lead to a range of health problems. We use stress-management techniques, such as mindfulness, meditation, and exercise, to support the body’s natural healing processes.
