WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?

Let Food Be Thy Medicine

– Hippocrates –

- How & Why -

Imagine you are driving in your car and the “check engine light” comes on.

This indicates something is not working properly, right? You take the car into the mechanic, the mechanic pops the hood. Instead of looking for the cause, the mechanic clips the wire to turn off the light and then sends you on your way. Does it sound like the mechanic got to the root cause of the problem? That is what it feels like with modern medicine. You see your doctor because your “check engine light” (aka-symptoms or disease) comes on.

You call your doctor and he or she sends you home with a pill that is supposed to turn the “check engine light” (aka-symptoms or disease) off.

Functional medicine takes a deeper look under the hood. Functional medicine is looking for the HOW and WHY disease occurs. Only by addressing the root causes, unique to each individual, will you have the ability to restore health!
