Function Medicine is a holistic approach to primary care that looks at addressing the root causes of diseases and uses evidence-based natural interventions when appropriate. This holistic approach addresses all nodes of health simultaneously: gut health, inflammation, genetics, hormone balance, toxin exposure and detoxification, stress management, lifestyle optimization (sleep, food, exercise), and mitochondrial function for energy. In addition to this, attention is paid to the mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing of each patient. The Functional Medicine approach brings into consideration that health and wellness are not simply the absence of disease. There is a great emphasis on establishing joy, resiliency, purpose, and peace in patient’s lives despite their personal health struggles.
