Frequently Asked Questions

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a special focus area where practitioners can analyze the underlying factors of complex chronic diseases. Practitioners look to identify and address the root causes of disease, not just the symptoms. By getting holistic health assessments, patients can be potentially liberated from their chronic dependence on the healthcare system.

Can functional medicine practitioners write prescriptions?

Functional medicine practitioners prefer to use natural remedies whenever possible. They may also recommend that blood tests be ordered.

What’s the difference between functional medicine and naturopathy?

Functional medicine aims to address the underlying factors that can influence long term health and complex chronic disease. Functional medicine providers may recommend conventional medicine or natural remedies and lifestyle modifications. 

The goal of naturopathic medicine is to treat a person’s mind, body, and spirit. Naturopathy offers alternative medicine and natural remedies, but not conventional medicine to help heal the body.

What will happen during my first visit?

A big part of your first visit involves exploring your detailed personal and family medical history. Depending on the outcome of the consultation, you may be given suggestions such as lifestyle and dietary modifications, to address the potential root causes of the issues presented. Further blood tests and/or functional medicine testing may also be suggested. 

What are the benefits of functional medicine?

Functional medicine provides you with a personalized care plan, which is customized for genes, environment, and lifestyle. By looking at health from a holistic perspective, functional medicine can help you uncover and address the underlying root causes of various chronic health conditions.
