Functional Medicine, rather than targeting individual symptoms, focuses on the optimal functioning of the entire body and its organs, and makes connections between the body systems ignored by allopathic medicine, since there is no profit or financial incentive to improve body functioning.

FM addresses the underlying root causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach in while understanding the conditions and history in which the discomfort manifested.

Genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors all have a direct influence of long-term health and chronic health issues and we address these along with  biochemical individuality and genetic uniqueness.

Traditional medicine gives a pill or surgery for a chronic condition in cookbook type format with not much customization which in most cases doesn’t improve the quality of life unless it was an anatomical issue.

Functional medicine would improve function so the patient is less likely to need medication or surgery, in some cases avoiding it, in other cases a lesser dose or surgery would be required.

Functional medicine may prevent or reduce the risk of certain chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, weight gain (obesity), that have a strong lifestyle component because individual nutrition, sleep, stress management, and supplements are customized and play a large role in these inflammatory conditions.
