WHAT IS HOLISTIC MEDICINE?

Holistic Medicine approaches well-being according to four primary elements of health:

 

  • Food
  • Sleep
  • Movement
  • Stress/Resiliency/Relaxation

 

By working with these primary lifestyle factors, our practitioners aim at optimal health by working with the whole person.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
