Functional Medicine is an approach to health and wellness which determines the root cause of a person’s symptoms in a wholistic and scientific manner. When you are faced with an emergency situation, emergency medicine is appropriate. However, if you are dealing with a long list of symptoms that have been going on for a long period of time, this is most certainly a recipe for suffering, confusion and symptom chasing. This tends to leave a person living and feeling like a hamster on a wheel, going and going but not quite getting to where you want to be.
Functional Medicine steps in and looks at the person as a whole. Not just a list of symptoms, but the person’s past medical history, the family history, stress, lab tests which include but are not limited to blood tests, saliva testing, hormones, genetic testing, food sensitivities, and more as necessary. Once this information is gathered, your blueprint will be created which is your roadmap to your health goals. To have an emBODYed blueprint means you will be in control and KNOW how you do you. You will be able to step away from the guessing games.
Based on your results you will know what works for you and what may weaken you. You will learn how to exercise, eat, sleep, and drink to help maximize your metabolism. You will also get clear on what and how many vitamins to take in order to not create or have vitamin deficiencies. Vitamin deficiencies ultimately lead to fatigue, brain fog, stomach bloating, gas, allergies, headaches, weight gain, and overall aging of YOU both inside and outside!! With the partnership between you and Functional Medicine, you can start to handle your health concerns and have the healthy, vibrant, energetic life that you deserve!!
