What Is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine can be described as an approach that utilizes a patient's complete health, medical history, and more to find health solutions. Imagine a patient's history, any lab work, and physical exams being readily accessible for review and diagnosis. All the information is combined to gather as much insight as possible into a patient's overall health as possible to reveal underlying health conditions.  This information can be used to create a functional snapshot of a patient that allows a medical practitioner to understand symptoms and create a treatment plan based on comprehensive information and tests. 

The functional medicine approach to medicine focuses on understanding what's going on in the body and removing any factors that prevent a patient's body from functioning optimally. In essence, functional medicine places emphasis on removing negative precursors and supporting bodily processes, allowing patients to heal naturally.

What Role Does Functional Medicine Play in Dealing with a Person’s Autoimmune Disease?

Creating favorable lifestyle factors and eliminating unfavorable factors that compromise a patient's immune system is an effective strategy for achieving whole-body wellness. Put simply, improving a patient's diet can greatly impact how that person’s body behaves, all the way down to the cellular level. Understanding the power of diet makes it possible to improve a patient's health through good nutrition.

Diet is a lifestyle factor that heavily affects a person's overall health. Anti-oxidant-rich foods high in phytonutrients (plant-based foods), vitamins, and dietary fiber are powerfully effective at regulating a patient's immune response. Diet is one of the power pieces of the puzzle that can supercharge a patient's health and make them more resistant to infections, chronic illness, and a host of other sicknesses, such as autoimmune conditions.
