What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine: A Holistic Approach to Healthcare
Functional medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that aims to identify and address the root causes of chronic disease. Rather than simply treating symptoms, functional medicine practitioners focus on identifying the underlying imbalances in the body that contribute to illness.
At the heart of functional medicine is a recognition of the interconnectedness of the body's systems. We at 4Healing Health & Wellness Center consider the impact of genetics, environment, lifestyle, and nutrition on overall health and wellbeing. By taking a personalized, systems-oriented approach, we at 4Healing Health & Wellness are able to develop individualized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each patient.
Dr. Ernesto Medina of 4Healing Health & Wellness utilizes a variety of tools and techniques to identify and address imbalances in the body. These may include lab testing, personalized nutrition plans, targeted supplementation, lifestyle modifications, medical massage and mind-body techniques. By combining these approaches, Dr. Medina is able to help patients work towards achieving optimal health and wellbeing.
One key aspect of functional medicine is a focus on preventative care. Rather than waiting until illness develops, practitioners work with patients to identify and address imbalances in the body before they become more serious. This can help to prevent the development of chronic disease and promote long-term health and wellbeing.
