What is Functional Medicine?


 

FoundationMED implements a functional medicine approach by focusing on assessing and addressing fundamental physiological processes that are impeding health and wellness and causing declining health or disturbing symptoms. We focus on the environmental inputs, genetic predispositions, physiologic disturbances and systems analysis (ie physiologic systems such as methylation, organ systems such as gut, hormone systems, energy dynamics, and so on).

Concurrent with this is the necessity of our patients to address the fundamentals of lifestyle intervention through an awareness on how to identify and optimize nutrition, toxin minimization, movement and exercise, sleep and sleep dynamics and stress and stress management.

This combination of patient lifestyle management and physician physiology management has proven to be a powerful way to address many causes of poor health and wellness.
