The Functional Health Institute is one of the nation’s leading clinics for achieving lasting health and wellness using science-based treatment methods of functional medicine.
Functional medicine is patient centered in a way that you’ve never experienced before.
Instead of looking at and trying to heal individual health problems as isolated diseases, we look at the individual as a whole. We address bodily symptoms, imbalances, and dysfunctions in their entirety together.
While traditional health care will often address the disease once it is visible, it fails to take a look at the altered physiology below the surface. Below the surface is where the problem is building up!
Functional Medicine is a science-based healthcare approach that assesses and treats the underlying causes of illness through individually tailored therapies to restore health and improve function.
Functional Medicine believes that transformation of 21st century health care from the prevailing disease centered model to a more effective patient centered model will succeed only if we address the underlying drivers of the epidemic:
The complicated lifelong interactions between lifestyle, environment, and genetics.
You might be wondering why the old model just doesn’t work, the answer is simple:
Because chronic disease is a food and lifestyle driven, environment and genetics influenced phenomenon.
It won’t be conquered with drugs and surgery, however helpful these tools may be in managing acute symptoms. There is no surgery for diabetes, depression, thyroid imbalances, Alzheimer’s, and so many other chronic diseases.
There just isn’t.
Instead, it’s time to look beyond the traditional approach that isn’t working. And that’s where the Functional Health Institute comes in. We focus on the patient and not the disease. We don’t aim to mask your symptoms or explain away your illness. With the use of extensive and science-based testing, we work comprehensively to uncover the root cause of your illness and restore your health to optimal functioning.
We help YOU to become truly healthy.
