Five reasons functional medicine is the only kind of health care you want, period.
- IT KEEPS YOU HEALTHY INSTEAD OF JUST KEEPING YOU ALIVE
- IT’S PERSONALIZED
- IT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD
- IT’S ALWAYS AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF SCIENCE
- IT CHANGES YOUR LIFE
Conventional medicine is great at making sure you don’t die, but its triage approach – waiting for an emergency or severe symptoms to diagnose and treat advanced illness – has nothing to do with improving your health and quality of life today.
Functional medicine uses advanced testing and genetics in combination with the art of listening to your story to piece together a plan that is 100% tailored to you, your body and your life. One size fits all, cookie cutter medicine no longer cuts it.
It improves your quality of life, from energy and clarity to weight and immunity. It’s about helping you feel your best now and teeing you up for a long healthy life in the future. It gets to the root cause of pesky symptoms like insomnia, fatigue, gas & bloating, and skin rashes and eliminates them. It supports your body’s optimal function with natural vitamins, minerals and herbs so that you need fewer drugs and procedures.
Functional medicine is able to take advantage of new research in real time such as discoveries around how the microbiome – aka the bacteria in our bodies – impact our health, because it’s based on a paradigm of the body as an interconnected matrix, not a disconnected set of organ systems.
Functional medicine teaches you how to listen to your body and tap in to your health in ways you never forget. Ultimately how you live each day determines your health and quality of life. Functional medicine is designed to teach you how to live well and to support you in maintaining that lifestyle despite the many toxic inputs and influences – chemicals in products and food, sedentary lifestyles, chronic stress – we are all exposed to in today’s world. It also supports you with the guidance and tools to handle the inevitable challenges in the best possible way so that you live well and generate as much happiness in your life as you can.
