Everyone’s body is different, the nutrients and vitamins your body need may vary from that of your neighbor. But this isn’t really new information, right? If we know everyone has a unique body composition and chemistry, why are we settling for treatment that is a generalization?
Functional Medicine is the study of how and why illnesses occur in the body, and how it can restore one’s health by addressing the root causes of the disease for each patient’s unique health levels. The Functional Medicine approach is a highly individualized, and patient-centered one. It does not adhere to the “one stop shop” for any one type of problem in the human body. It relies heavily on a detailed understanding of the patient’s biochemical, genetic, and lifestyle factors. With this data, personalized treatment plans are then put together so that it is uniquely tailored to the exact needs of the patient.
Because of the extensive testing done on each patient’s blood work, our doctors are able to get readings on
