Center for Holistic Medicine
When was the last time your doctor spent an hour with you?
Here at the Center for Holistic Medicine, we take time to get to know you. An average initial visit may take 90 minutes. During this process we exchange information regarding your
current medical concerns, diet and nutrition, exercise/movement routine, sleep and relaxation as well as stress and relationships. A thorough investigation into predisposing genetic indicators including triggering and mediating factors
of illness are explored.
Functional medicine is a science based personalized health care approach that assesses and treats the underlying causes of illness. Individually tailored therapies are used to restore
health and improve function and wellness.
A Patient Centered Approach
Every individual is unique. This is what makes functional medicine so useful. Traditional medicine frequently uses a diagnosis to define your condition and prescribes medication to
decrease your symptoms. The functional medicine approach, however, is an upstream approach, looking at the underlying causes of your condition and uses lifestyle modifications, including, nutrition, exercise, stress management as well
as traditional medications and supplements to modulate them.
Integrating best medical practices
Functional medicine integrates traditional western medical practices with what are sometimes considered "alternative" or "integrative" medicine. There is a strong focus on prevention and treatment programs and use of lifestyle approaches to modify wellness. The latest laboratories and detailed histories are obtained and physical examines are performed. A combination of prescription and/or botanical medicines are considered based on each individual's evaluation. We employ functional medicine approach and traditional healing methods to treat a range of maladies from Autism Spectrum Disorders to Zinc deficiency.
