A functional approach to common complaints
What are the common complaints?
The 5 most chronic symptoms are weight gain, fatigue, depression, hormone imbalances and digestive problems. These are typically misunderstood/misdiagnosed by conventional medicine practitioners who attempt to address the symptoms, not the root cause/damaged system, thus never fixing the problem. Instead we use a functional medicine approach to target these conditions.
What is Functional Medicine and how's it different?
Functional Medicine, rather than targeting individual symptoms, focuses on the optimal functioning of the entire body and its organs. It addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach in partnership with understanding the conditions and history in which the disease manifested.
Using a lab-based natural health protocol that tests and identifies the dysfunction of the 3 core main body systems (hormones, digestion, and detoxification), we can determine the required natural support needed to re-balance your body back to its normal state.
What can you expect from a Holistic Medicine approach?
Generous appointment times and a sense of partnering WITH your physician. The mission is to be your partner during your healthcare journey so you can achieve wellness in a a safe, sustainable way. Holistic Medicine takes time and dedication on your part to change the habits that fuel your symptoms and chronic conditions. Remember: your symptoms didn't happen overnight. No one wakes up one day carrying an extra 20 lbs around their belly, and sustained loss of that weight won't happen overnight either. By looking below the surface, we can discover WHY you feel the way you do so you can make changes that last a lifetime.
