What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine treats chronic disease by discovering the underlying cause of illness.  It is systems focused, rather than symptoms focused.  The primary goal is to prevent or reverse chronic illness.  We do this by testing and correcting the three body systems.  We are looking for the underlying cause of the symptoms.  Your symptoms are clues that we use to determine what testing is needed.  The underlying cause is discovered by analyzing your test results.  An individualized program is created to correct the underlying cause of your symptoms.  When this occurs, your symptoms disappear.
