Functional medicine is a science-based, holistic approach to health.
In addition to rapid symptom relief, functional medicine looks to address the root causes of mental-emotional and physical disease.
Because the mind and body are connected, nutrient-poor foods, toxins, and stress can lead to issues such as poor gut function, suboptimal vitamins and minerals, and a decreased production of those feel-good neurotransmitters…all of which can contribute to a decline in mental health.
The interconnectedness of genetic, biological, environmental, and lifestyle factors are explored. increasing what is needed, decreasing what is harmful, and creating an environment for healing helps the body and the mind to shift back into balance for peak health.
