What Is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine in a Nut Shell

By using a combination of history, physical exam findings, and lab work the clinician can identify fundamental factors that are driving the symptoms that your body is expressing. By removing these drivers, modulating specific biochemical pathways, and supporting deficiencies, symptoms will dissipate, and the body can function at its optimal potential.  The body is designed to heal itself, if we support the processes that allow it to do so.
