The functional medicine model stands apart because it is a highly individualized, patient-centred, and science-based approach.
It empowers patients and practitioners to work together to promote optimal wellness by addressing the underlying causes of disease. This model enables detailed understanding of each patient’s physiology, which is essential to creating personalized treatment plans that result in better patient outcomes.
We don’t focus on symptoms – we focus on the root cause so we can address the complexity of the disease. This approach is critical, since one condition can have many causes, and one cause might result in different conditions. A functional approach to medicine is highly effective because it targets the source of disease in our patients.
