Dive Deeper into Functional Medicine

Many in Phoenix and Scottsdale often ask, “What is the real benefit of Functional Medicine?” Here’s a deep dive into its core principles and advantages. Functional Medicine is a science-based and data-driven approach to analyzing and deciphering the root cause(s) of symptoms. Until the root source is identified and addressed, symptoms can only be masked and never eliminated effectively. It’s a medicine of “why?” and not just the medicine of “what?”. Functional medicine treats the entire body as an interconnected system of organs and not just the organs individually. It’s a fundamentally different approach to treating non-acute diseases and trauma, like chronic auto-immune disease, for example.

While conventional (allopathic) medicine treats all patients with similar symptoms alike, functional medicine considers each patient’s unique medical history, genetic component, diet and nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, social factors, behavioral, and environmental factors to customize the treatment plan to each individual. Functional Medicine practitioners are also doctors and do use conventional lab tests, however, in addition to those labs they also perform specialty labs to gauge your toxic load, and exposure to mold, decipher the type and cause of your inflammation and analyze your metabolism.

Functional medicine doctors partner with patients so patients can actively participate in diagnosis and treatment instead of being passive recipients of prescription medicine. By shifting the conventional disease/symptom-based approach of medical practice to a more patient-focused approach, functional medicine is rethinking disease, rethinking medicine, and helping people achieve optimal health.

Benefits of Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine operates on the premise that our body is an intricately interconnected system, and true healing begins by understanding and addressing the root causes of health imbalances rather than just masking the symptoms. This pioneering approach offers a plethora of benefits, reshaping how we view and approach healthcare. :

  • Holistic Healing: Unlike traditional medicine which often isolates specific symptoms, Functional Medicine views the body as an interconnected whole. It seeks to restore balance, ensuring each part works harmoniously with the rest.
  • Personalized Care: Recognizing that every individual is unique, this approach tailors treatments based on each person's genetics, environment, and lifestyle, ensuring targeted and effective healing.
  • Preventative Approach: By identifying and addressing the root causes of diseases early on, Functional Medicine serves as a proactive approach, preventing ailments before they manifest severely.
  • Empowering Patients: Functional Medicine fosters a collaborative doctor-patient relationship. Patients are educated and empowered to take an active role in their health journey, leading to more sustainable and lasting outcomes.
  • Reduced Reliance on Medications: Instead of merely prescribing medications to mask symptoms, this approach seeks to address underlying imbalances, often reducing the need for multiple medications.
  • Comprehensive Diagnostic Tools: Functional Medicine utilizes advanced diagnostic testing, delving deeper into the body's processes and systems to identify the true root causes of health issues.
  • Integrative Therapies: The approach is open to integrating both conventional and alternative therapies, ensuring the patient benefits from a broad spectrum of healing modalities.
  • Chronic Disease Management: Particularly effective for those with chronic conditions, such as autoimmune diseases or hormonal imbalances, Functional Medicine offers solutions that go beyond temporary relief, targeting systemic imbalances and chronic triggers.
  • Lifestyle Emphasis: Acknowledging the impact of diet, sleep, stress, and other lifestyle factors, Functional Medicine often incorporates lifestyle changes into treatment plans, promoting overall well-being.
