Serving Residents of Cypress & Spring, TX at our Woodlands, TX Location
Functional Medicine is a systems biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of a disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.
A diagnosis can be the result of more than one cause. For example, depression can be caused by many different factors, including inflammation. Likewise, a cause such as inflammation may lead to a number of different diagnoses, including depression. The precise manifestation of each cause depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle, and only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefits beyond symptom suppression.
Here lies the clear distinction and definition of Functional Medicine: instead of asking, “What drug matches up with this disease?” Functional Medicine asks the vital questions that very few conventional doctors ask:
In other words, Functional Medicine looks to find the root cause or mechanism involved with any loss of function, which ultimately reveals why a set of symptoms is there in the first place, or why the patient has a particular disease label.
