What is Integrative & Functional Medicine?
Functional and integrative medicine is an approach to medical care that examines and treats the whole person – body, mind and soul- to improve a patient’s overall health. It’s not about only fixing the “problems,” it is about getting the patient to better state of well-being!
Functional and integrative medicine focuses on the body as a whole by the looking at the lifestyle choices, systems and processes, and underlying factors that can affect a person’s overall health. In these approaches to care, a close and ongoing patient and provider relationship is essential to gain the knowledge and insight to get to the root of the physical, mental, or emotional issues.
