About Functional Medicine

In functional medicine, the goal is to discover the origin of disease, illness and poor health. We treat these issues at their root cause. The functional medicine team at Wellness 1st Integrative Medical Center always considers your whole-body health first.

Instead of sending you to a dozen specialists for different internal issues, your functional medicine team views your body as an integrated system.

The functional medicine approach emphasizes balance first. Once you’re in a healthy and balanced place, with all organs functioning at their peak, your functional medicine doctor prescribes specific remedies and supplements, if needed.

How Is Functional Medicine Different from Conventional Medicine?

Many conventional medical doctors treat the patient as a collection of individual organs without looking at the whole body, as functional medicine doctors do. For example, in the case of gut health, a conventional medicine doctor might prescribe pills. Unfortunately, that only masks the symptoms, providing temporary relief, but the symptoms will return in a matter of hours. Your functional medicine doctor really delves into the reasons for your gut issues. This means extensive testing to learn how and why it started.

With the results of your tests, your functional medicine doctor works with you to correct body imbalances naturally through diet, behavior modification and other all-natural means. When you correct a health problem using the functional medicine approach, it is usually a long-lasting correction rather than a temporary solution.
