Functional medicine employs advanced science and diagnostics to determine the origin of the ailments, and then focuses on natural health remedies like meditation, diet, exercise and nutritional supplements, herbal remedies.

A Functional Medicine physician restores normal physiology and normal body"Function" rather than focusing on the treatment of particular diseases. We find, generally speaking, that if we can restore normal body function that most disease processes clear up. There's an original new patient consultation, typically one hour or longer where they take a complete history, not only a medical history but a history of your life stresses, working to locate the original underlying cause of the health problems you are experiencing rather than solely focusing on your current symptoms. Functional Medicine doctors will decide the tests that need to be taken, and some are used in traditional medicine but most unique to functional medicine.
