What Is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine takes a more in depth approach. It focuses on treating the root cause of an illness or a disease by utilizing a more holistic and personalized approach. In doing so, functional medicine achieves far superior results and treats the individual patient, rather than just treating the symptoms of your condition. At Elevate, we believe that choosing functional medicine is choosing the road less traveled. It’s committing to an understanding of how your lifestyle affects your health. As you commit to a deeper understanding of yourself and to making long-lasting changes, we commit to guiding you down your path to optimizing your health.
Functional Medicine Is Personalized
Because you are a unique individual with your own background, family history, personal medical history and genetic profiles, any decisions regarding your healthcare should reflect those details.
Functional Medicine is patient centered, as opposed to traditional medicine which is disease centered. We consider health in the long-term and offer a holistic approach. Health is not seen merely as the absence of disease, but as optimal wellness. Functional medicine is designed to help you reach that optimized level of total health and wellness.
Why We Need Functional Medicine
- We are seeing a rise in the number of people suffering from chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and autoimmune conditions.
- The traditional one-size-fits-all model doesn’t take into account the unique genetic makeup of each individual. It doesn’t address environmental exposure to toxins and lifestyle choices that are influencing the rise in chronic disease.
- Most providers lack training to help their patients develop strategies to address nutrition, diet, exercise and stress reduction necessary to avoid or reverse chronic diseases.
Your health specifically depends on your dedication to following the personalized plan Jessica designs and supports for you. Call the caring team of experts at Elevate Personalized Medicine to begin your path to optimal health and learn more about functional medicine today.
