Functional Medicine practitioners utilize several frameworks to help identify which bodily processes are affected. These processes include:
- how your body rids itself of toxins
- regulation of hormones and neurotransmitters
- immune system function
- inflammatory responses
- digestion and absorption of nutrients and the health of the digestive tract
- structural integrity
- psychological and spiritual equilibrium
- how you produce energy
Any disruption in these bodily processes can cause or accelerate symptoms and disease. Functional medicine practitioners work to bring the imbalanced bodily processes back to balance.
Functional medicine treats many chronic health conditions. Conditions we treat include acne, adrenal exhaustion, allergies, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, autoimmune conditions, chronic fatigue, depression, diabetes, digestive disorders, Epstein- Barr virus infection, food intolerances, headaches, high and low blood pressure, hormone imbalances, hypothyroidism, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, liver disorders, low back pain including sciatica, low immunity, menopausal symptoms, migraine, neck pain, obesity, stress, ulcerative colitis, and many other conditions.
Functional medicine asks how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. As a result, patients experience longer lasting results and overall improvement in their health and wellbeing.
