Functional Medicine

Have you heard of Functional Medicine? I’m going to give it a try:

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a
systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a
therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine
that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By
shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a
more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole
person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine
practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their
histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental,
and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex,
chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique
expression of health and vitality for each individual.
