SPECIALIZING IN FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE:
So, what is Functional Medicine? It is a lab based system of analysis that relies primarily on natural health solutions. We use science to determine the problems, i.e. lab work and focus on natural health treatments that are timeless; diet, exercise and oftentimes nutritional supplements, herbal treatments all based on labs. The meaning of the “Functional” part is that in Functional Medicine, we strive to find organ “Dysfunction” prior to the onset of a disease process and restore “Function” back.
What do Functional Medicine doctors do in terms of initial workups?
Most follow a similar path. There is an initial new patient consultation where we take a complete history, not just a medical history, but a history of your life stresses, working to find the original underlying cause of the health problems you are experiencing rather than solely focusing on your current symptoms. All Functional Medicine doctors will order various types of labs, some used in conventional medicine but most unique to our field. This is the area where Functional Medicine really stands out because the labs often reveal problems that have plagued you for years.
