What is Functional Medicine?

What is Functional Medicine?

There has been a movement within allopathic medicine to adopt a holistic model in their paradigm. This gave rise to functional medicine, practiced by a new generation of integrative physicians, having great success in esteemed medical centers such as Cleveland Clinic.

Similar to traditional medicine, modalities such as naturopathy and Chinese medicine, functional medicine seeks to address the root cause, or causes, of a patient’s illness.

Getting the Correct Diagnoses

Getting the Correct Diagnoses

I have great reverence for the scientific method and one of its beneficiaries, conventional Western medicine (immunotherapy played a role in my cancer journey). Yet conventional medicine sometimes fails to address the whole person—body, mind, spirit—through its reductionist lens. For that piece of the healing puzzle, many turn to practitioners of holistic medicine, such as naturopathy and Chinese medicine.
