Where science meets care.
Health care that actually lives up to the name, functional medicine is about providing both health and care to every patient in a way that is lasting, effective, and completely unique to the individual body, situation and person. It works by shifting the focus and healing from being a disease-centered approach to a patient-centered approach, taking into account the person as a whole and not just treating the symptoms. This naturopathic medicine focuses on helping the person heal, not simply clearing up the symptoms without the use of pharmaceutical drugs.
From diabetes to hypothyroidism, traditional medicine’s approach is to give the body fake insulin or fake hormones—medicating the symptoms away without addressing the underlying cause. However, over periods of time, the body becomes less responsive to these methods, and only gets increasingly sick.
Functional medicine is an innovative and highly effective alternative to traditional medicine.
By making the treatment about you and your whole body, it is personal, unique and completely tailored to you and your illness so that you get the proper attention you deserve, and the solutions which will not only heal your symptoms, but heal your body. This includes factors like your history, your genetics, your environment, your daily habits, your diet, and so much more so that you have a comprehensive plan designed to work with you. In this way, we are able to identify the causes of your problems—why you are experiencing the pain, why it’s not going away and what we can do to not only relieve it, but heal it at the source. In this way, it is our goal that you have holistic health.
Functional medicine requires patience, time, and gentle care, but if you are ready, then so are we. It’s time to make a change. Call us now at 805-499-4446 with any questions, and schedule your appointment today!
