Why Is Functional Medicine Better For Chronic Conditions?

Tired of being tired all the time? 

And not getting answers from your doctor about your chronic symptoms either?

In this video, I’ll share why you’ll want to look into Functional Medicine and why it’s the better treatment path for chronic conditions.

The conventional approach to treating illness is great for acute care, things like setting a broken leg, performing life-saving surgery, or dealing with an infection.

When an illness becomes chronic, traditional doctors don’t have the time to spend with people who have complex problems.  A 15-minute visit doesn’t help the doctor understand all the factors the patient is dealing with leading to their chronic disease.  They are usually trained to match a symptom to a medication- which doesn’t work for chronic illness because you have to look at the root causes.  Most medications suppress symptoms and don’t get to the root cause of illness.  

It is why Functional Medicine is so effective at treating chronic illnesses. We don’t only work to find the root causes of your symptoms, but we look at all the factors in your life that could be creating chronic illnesses, from gut health to hormonal imbalances, diet, sleep, environmental toxins, and much more.  And, of course, this kind of in-depth investigation takes time.  I spend anywhere from 1-2 hours with each new patient because I need to get to know you, and you need to feel I am carefully listening to all your concerns.  

While our goal is to rebalance the body so that chronic symptoms can be a thing of the past, the true goal is to teach you how to create vibrant health instead of struggling with symptoms and medications that present their own challenges. Both doctor and patient are satisfied and happy.
