What is functional medicine?
Conventional vs. Functional Medicine
Conventional medicine typically only treats the symptoms, overlooking the underlying issues that may be causing those symptoms – and that’s what we do differently. Functional Medicine uses the symptoms as clues to uncover your underlying health conditions and address them directly. By treating the root cause, you will heal your symptoms from the inside out.
Functional medicine is a therapeutic partnership between the patient and the practitioner, and is exactly how we run our practice at One Integrative Wellness. We strive to determine the source of health issues by really listening to our patients to understand their health history, genetic predispositions, environmental exposures and lifestyle factors that may affect a patient’s overall health. In this way, we are able to understand your underlying health problems and help treat your health conditions.
