Common Questions About Functional Medicine
You may be wondering what functional medicine is, as well as how it all works. Below we will explore these questions together:
What Is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is a practice in which the focus is on the body and its organs, unlike the conventional medicine approach which focuses primarily on individual symptoms. By using a systems-oriented approach, it identifies and addresses the underlying causes of what is ailing a patient. Long-term health and chronic health issues are often directly influenced by environmental, lifestyle, and genetic factors.
Conventional medicine is generally geared towards symptom management, whereas functional medicine likes to explore the roots of the symptoms and or diseases and illnesses to better understand what may be contributing to them, as well as what may be developing as a result of the present symptoms and or conditions.
How Does It Work?
Functional medicine focuses its efforts on restoring the body and correcting what it finds to be functioning improperly or out of balance. Instead of utilizing pharmaceutical drugs to fight and cure disease and illness symptoms, it helps reinforce and improve upon the body’s own capabilities and strengths against such ailments.
This strengthening of the body is not only beneficial for the patient’s body, but also for their mind and recovery. The better they understand what it is that is hurting them, the easier it can be to let go of some of that pain and work on the symptoms or habits that have evolved because of it.
