In a world where chronic disease is on the rise, it's more important than ever to take control of our health and well-being. With 60% of adults in the United States suffering from chronic illnesses, and the global cost of treating these conditions projected to reach $47 trillion by 2030, it's clear that something needs to change. This is where Functional Medicine can help.

Functional Medicine Approach

Functional Medicine is a revolutionary approach to healthcare that focuses on treating the root cause of health issues rather than just managing symptoms. By taking a holistic, patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine practitioners work collaboratively with patients to develop individualized treatment plans that address the underlying causes of their illnesses. This approach not only leads to better outcomes for patients but also empowers them to take control of their health and prevent future illnesses from developing.

Unlike conventional medicine, which often relies on prescription drugs to suppress symptoms, Functional Medicine seeks to restore balance to the body and promote long-term health. By using ancestral health strategies to align the body with its environment, Functional Medicine practitioners help patients make lasting changes to their diet, lifestyle, and environment that support optimal health and well-being.

Lifestyle Cause => Lifestyle Solution

Consider this scenario: a middle-aged woman with high blood pressure visits her doctor and is quickly prescribed medication without any further investigation into the root cause of her condition. On the other hand, a Functional Medicine practitioner would take the time to delve into the factors contributing to her high blood pressure, such as diet, lifestyle, and environmental influences. Together with a team of health coaches and experts, a tailored plan would be developed to address her cardiovascular health from a holistic perspective. After-all, this is considered a lifestyle caused disease, as most diseases are. Why wouldn't the first thing you do to address it be to look at lifestyle as a remedy for it? 

Imagine a world where instead of leaving a doctor's appointment with a prescription for yet another medication, you leave with a personalized  plan that addresses the root cause of your health issues. This is the power of Functional Medicine. By working with health coaches, nutritionists, and other allied health providers, Functional Medicine practitioners support patients on their journey to better health and wellness.

Functional Medicine And Similarities With Naturopathy

Functional medicine and naturopathy are two holistic approaches to healthcare that focus on addressing the root causes of illness rather than just treating symptoms. Both of these alternative practices prioritize individualized care, looking at the whole person and their unique health history to create a personalized treatment plan.

One of the key similarities between naturopathy and functional medicine is their emphasis on treating the body as a whole system, rather than focusing on isolated symptoms or organs. Both approaches recognize the interconnectedness of different bodily systems and the importance of addressing underlying imbalances to achieve optimal health. Another shared principle is the use of natural therapies and lifestyle interventions to support the body's innate healing abilities. Naturopaths and functional medicine practitioners often recommend dietary changes, supplements, herbs, and other natural remedies to help restore balance and promote wellness.

Functional Medicine And Differences With Naturopathy

However, there are also some key differences between naturopathy and functional medicine. Naturopathy is a broader term that encompasses a variety of natural healing modalities, including herbal medicine and homeopathy, in addition to functional medicine principles. Naturopaths may also focus on promoting overall wellness and preventing disease, while functional medicine tends to be more specifically targeted at addressing chronic health conditions.

In contrast to conventional medicine, which often relies on pharmaceutical drugs and surgery to treat symptoms, both naturopathy and functional medicine take a more integrative and patient-centered approach. They aim to empower individuals to take control of their health and make informed decisions about their care. If you or a loved one are struggling with chronic illness and are looking for a more holistic approach to healthcare, consider exploring the benefits of functional medicine.
