Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine assumes that the mind and brain are strongly influenced by the function of the body. This mandates a clear understanding of the ‘why’ before an approach can be developed. Functional Medicine begins with a thorough data-gathering process involving a review of the patient’s medical history, medications, questionnaire responses, a partial physical exam, and psychological assessment. Based on an analysis of that data, a determination is made of which targeted laboratory tests are appropriate to solve the medical mystery. These may include:

  • Gastrointestinal function
  • Immune function including infection and inflammation
  • Detoxification and bio-toxin burden
  • Oxidative stress and mitochondrial function
  • Nutritional status and special nutritional needs
  • Hormonal function
  • Genetic and epigenetic function
