Functional medicine offers a patient-centered, holistic approach to treating chronic disease. The goal of functional medicine is to find and treat the core cause of chronic illness.
Instead of trying to identify which medication will treat your symptoms, functional medicine providers focus on finding the root cause of your issues to restore optimal function and wellness.
The team at Vitality Healthcare, take a holistic approach to understanding you as a whole person, recognizing that because everyone is different, you require a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Functional Medicine Cares For The Patients, Not The Disease
Genetically and biochemically, everyone is unique. Functional medicine adopts a tailored approach, caring for the patient rather than the disease.
Functional medicine practitioners look for ways to restore and enhance the body’s own healing mechanisms to resolve chronic issues. Certain circumstances can throw your body off balance, and when this happens, chronic diseases can occur.
A Holistic Approach To Chronic Disease
Traditional medicine relies heavily on medication and surgeries to treat symptoms without investigating or reversing the root cause.
While medication and surgery may be appropriate for acute health issues, they’re less advantageous for chronic illness.
The goal of functional care is to move the body’s physiology back to a condition of optimal functioning by removing everything that is preventing the body from reaching optimal health, and by adding what’s missing.
Functional care focuses on figuring out why the body isn’t working properly in the first place. We rely on each patient’s unique history, advanced blood tests, and a thorough examination of the patient’s general lifestyle as a guide.
The result? Functional care leads to better quality-of-life outcomes when compared with the conventional medicine approach.
