How is a functional medicine different than conventional medicine?

  • Functional Medicine uses a bigger toolbox than most conventional medicine: medications still have a role and additional tools include food plans, vitamins, minerals, supplements, supporting adequate healthy sleep, supporting adequate social resources, stress management, exercise and restorative practices like yoga, meditation and biofeedback.
  • Sophisticated tests are available to evaluate functions of the body via Functional Medicine labs and all tests results showing imbalance(s) have accompanying strategies offered to restore the imbalance(s) to optimal.
