Nutrition & Functional Medicine


About this Field of Medicine

The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.

By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.

In functional nutrition, we focus on treating the person, not just the disease. Fundamentally, it is a patient-centered approach to health care. Extensive assessments are performed for each patient. This can include lab tests, nutritional and lifestyle assessments, thorough history taking, and research.

All of these give us a picture of where the dysfunction lies within the person and allows us to customize a treatment plan that is individualized to each patient’s needs.

A Wholistic Treatment Approach: Integrative Nutrition

The body does not operate as individual systems. Instead, it is a highly complex network in which many systems are interconnected. These systems cannot function independently so they must be considered as a whole. A whole-body, functional medicine approach can optimize health and improve quality of life.
