How is functional medicine different? As your treatment with Healthy Living begins, you’ll quickly see a difference in how our practice operates compared to traditional medical practices. In functional medicine we base our treatment on the understanding that every system in your body is connected- you can’t treat your cardiovascular concerns without considering your intestinal health or inflammatory markers. You cannot treat disease without considering exercise, nutrition, sleep, mental clarity and health, physical health, and spiritual or relational health. Our genetics, environment, lifestyle choices, sleep patterns, stress levels contribute to disease progression or reversal. Functional medicine requires knowing your body in-detail. It requires understanding how your health has progressed over the years.
Detailed knowledge of your body combined with clinical expertise in functional medicine and lifestyle applications leads to achieving long-term, sustainable health.
