Functional medicine is a personalized and integrative approach to healthcare which involves understanding the prevention, management, and root causes of complex chronic disease. Functional medicine has evolved integrative, holistic, conventional and naturopathic models to offer the most comprehensive and effective approach to healthcare in the 21st century.

The term “functional medicine” is a relatively new term. Current research is showing us that a number of modifiable factors are contributing to our health risks daily. The health community is learning that when biologic systems are out of balance and lack essential fats, minerals, nutrients, or chemicals, the body will fall out of function resulting in disease issues.
