At the Functional Medicine & Wellness Center we specialize in Functional Medicine. Functional Medicine is healthcare that focuses on the physiological, emotional/cognitive and physical function of your body in a holistic way. We use laboratory assessment and early intervention to improve your body’s function to help you prevent disease. A functional medicine health care program is customized to each patient’s individual needs.
Traditional Western Medicine’s approach tends to be more disease oriented, rather than being focused on prevention. Examining blood work is an excellent example of how Functional Medicine works. The “normals” used today are calculated by averages of the American population. Because the average American is becoming increasingly unwell the normals keep getting broader. In Functional Medicine the normals never change, as they are based on the optimal figures of true health.
