Functional Medicine Approach
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is a systems biology based approach and looks at how the body interacts with the environment over time. My approach is to start with a comprehensive assessment process with pysiologic or mental health symtoms or diagnosis to search for underlying causes. Physical, emotional and spiritual factors all interact and impact our health and well being. Just as mental heath symtoms can be caused by physical illness, genetics, life style factors and medications, physical illness can develop and be aggrivated by trauma, stress and psychiatric conditions.
For these reasons my assessment for physical and psychiatric illness is similar. Through working together with you, in partnership, we prioritize diagnostic and treatment methods and approaches. I understand that each client is an individual that have their own priorities, desires and concerns in mind when they come to see me.
