Functional Medicine Introduction

Based on cutting-edge science, functional medicine offers a whole new way to understand and treat chronic illnesses from diabetes to depression; heart disease to hypertension; autoimmune disease to autism; Alzheimer’s to anxiety and more.

The core concept is that chronic illness is an outcome of imbalances in the key underlying physiological systems in your body. When inflammation, blood sugar imbalance, insulin resistance, oxidative stress, hormonal problems, and other systemic upset occur the body spirals out of balance.

This in conjunction with poor diet, lack of essential nutrients, emotional stress, environmental toxins, lack of exercise, and other lifestyle issues set the stage for chronic disease to develop. Functional medicine provides a method for rebalancing the body’s underlying physiological systems and addressing lifestyle issues that contribute to these illnesses. When this is done your biology’s inherent healing forces are unleashed and chronic illness is resolved naturally and quickly often without the need for costly pharmaceutical medications or invasive surgeries. In this way functional medicine offers a unique approach to understanding the terrain of chronic illness and provides us a whole new way to address the epidemic of chronic disease we face in the 21st century.
