Functional Medicine is a holistic division of medical treatment which seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease and views the body as one integrated system, and not a collection of independent organs. The goal of functional medicine is to treat the whole system, not just the symptoms.
Our medical staff is focused on functional medicine including the following aspects:
Hormones are substances in our body that work at an area remote from where the hormone is produced. Both women and men can have abnormalities in hormone balance which can range from feeling generally unwell to having life-threatening medical issues. Our medical staff is fully able to assess your hormone status, and initiate appropriate treatment t enhance your feelings of wellness, as well as your well being.
"You are what you eat" may be truer than most of us would like to admit. Our medical team members, in addition to selected outside associates, are able to help you focus on dietary guidelines which can allow you to enhance your feeling of wellness and health. As appropriate, we are also able to help you with medically supervised weight reduction to also enable you to look and feel your best.
It is well recognized that tobacco use, as well as excessive consumption of alcohol, are detrimental to health, wellness, and ultimately life. Our medical staff is able to assist you as necessary to stop the unhealthy habits that sometimes seem so difficult to overcome. We also come paired with community resources to assist you with the development of appropriate exercise habits to help tone up, slim down, and generally feel better in your daily life.
