The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation that the different body parts work in coordination, not in isolation; and that each organ, each region, and each cell needs to account for certain basic functions in order to thrive. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.
The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:
- Medical practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. A doctor will only make a medical diagnosis after listening carefully to a patient’s history, documenting their personal choices and medicinal interactions.
- Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches
- A prioritization is placed on utilizing historic therapies that have been deemed to be effective, in which there is no modern equivalent. Emphasis is made on avoiding side-effects. Most therapies are categorized as Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA. Rarely are prescription medications given if there is no other equivalent.
- Clients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encouraged to take an active role in improving how they feel.
Utilizing the functional medicine approach can allow patients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope. Instead of relying on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, the team at the Rebalancing Center seek, rather, to bring the body back to functioning the way it was meant to function.
With the founding of the practice, the staff has helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, and more.
