What We Do
Integrative and Functional Medicine
Integrative Medicine is healing-oriented medicine that considers the whole person (body, mind, and spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, conventional and alternative.
Functional Medicine explores how genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. Healthy foods, exercise, and stress reduction are core therapies to improve health and restore balance.
An integrative/functional medicine approach can help you:
Understand how diet affects your particular problems and what changes you can make to improve your health.
Choose effective complementary/alternative (CAM) therapies.
Make smart, cost effective decisions about dietary supplements and botanicals.
Choose reputable CAM products and practitioners.
Make decisions about your treatments based on the most up to date medical evidence.
