What is Functional Medicine
Functional Medicine treats the whole person, it is the practice of moving towards a root cause of the symptoms versus managing the symptoms. Thus the outcome of functional medicine is long term health and wellness. I've experienced the benefits of functional medicine first hand. I watch how it brought my daughter back to a neurotypical child. One that was engaging and not melting down EVERY SINGLE DAY for minor reasons. I watched how functional medicine helped my husband recover from generalized anxiety and an out of the blue fear of high bridges and roadways. He now is a much more relaxed and extremely less anxious than he had been for years that he can remember.
A functional medicine practitioner, will not take a wait and see approach. They see lots of places where they can assist the patient to help them start feeling better. They can identify behaviors that are related to her suffering, move the patient towards better nutrition and suggest lifestyle changes that will help them take ownership of their daily life experiences.
It will take a functional practitioner time to uncover the reasons why the patient is not feeling well. It will take time to educate the patient on how they can take control of their health and manage their symptoms.
That is where I as a functional nutrition coach can assist you in making the changes needed in order for you to feel better sooner.

I appreciated it when you shared that functional medicine is the practice of moving towards the root cause of the disease rather than managing the symptoms. My friend just mentioned the other day that she is worried about her husband who has been dealing with allergy since a few months ago. I will suggest to her looking for a reliable place that offer functional medicine so they can find out the root cause of it.
