- What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine (FM) is a patient-centered approach to healing. Instead of looking at health problems as isolated diseases as most medical doctors might, FM assists the individual who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances and dysfunctions from an entirely difference perspective than traditional allopathic medicine.
- How Functional Medicine Can Work For You
It is difficult to give a definitive answer to a question like this, without knowing what you are dealing with. Functional Medicine by definition attempts to find dysfunction with the 12 systems of the body. To do this, practitioners use a variety of scientific laboratory tests to help understand where dysfunction is occurring within a body.
