What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a 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. Functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. (adapted from definition by Dr. Mark Hyman)
