Currently, society is experiencing a large increase in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic dieseases such as:

Diabetes

Heart Disease

Cancer

Mental Illness

Anxiety

Obesity

Autoimmune Disorders

In addition, the costs associated with health care are continually getting higher and higher.

If you have an urgent health care need such as a wound that needs stiches, traditional medicine is the way to go. But if  you’ve been seeking relief from chronic health issues you should consider Functional Medicine.

What’s the Difference?

TRADITIONAL MEDICINE

is a Disease-Centered Approach

  • Acute care based on problems / complaints.
  • Diagnosis and treatment of trauma or illness that is of short duration such as when in need of urgent care, such as for appendicitis or a broken leg.
  • Chronic conditions are treated as the acute problem.
  • Utilizes medications and surgeries to control or suppress symptoms.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

is a Patient-Centered Approach

  • Addresses the WHOLE person, not just an isolated set of symptoms or body parts.
  • Involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease.
  • Promotes health as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease.
  • Utilizes Lifestyle Changes based on root-cause discovery.
