Functional Medicine

As defined by The Institute for Functional Medicine, “Functional Medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and evaluating the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.”

The Benefits of Functional Medicine:

  • Patient Centered

  • Individualized Care

  • Better Health Outcomes

  • Lower Healthcare Costs

  • Empowering

Evolutionary Medicine

Evolutionary Medicine acknowledges the course of maturation and adaptation of the human species to the demands of the surrounding environment. Through the application of the principles present in evolutionary biology, we are able to develop an extensive and inclusive view of the primary factors affecting human health. Through this lens, we are able to recognize the importance of human connection/cooperation, time in nature, environmental exposure, whole foods diets and movement amidst many other factors to restore and maintain human health.
