Integrative Functional Medicine

Integrative Functional Medicine

A circle with eight different types of medicine in it.

What is Integrative Functional Medicine?

Integrative Functional medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes the whole person into account (including mental, emotional, functional, spiritual, social, and community aspects—and treating the whole person rather than, for example, one organ system), as well as all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative. Integrative health care often brings conventional and complementary approaches together in a coordinated way, including well-coordinated care between different providers and institutions.

The Principles of Integrative Functional Medicine: 

  • A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process
  • Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response
  • Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, spirit and community as well as body
  • A philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically
  • Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms
  • Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible
  • Use of the broader concepts of promotion of health and the prevention of illness as well as the treatment of disease
  • Training of practitioners to be models of health and healing, committed to the process of self-exploration and self-development.

This program is designed to correct the environmental, dietary and lifestyle stressors that are the cause of most chronic conditions and promote healthier personal habits to prevent disease and allow healing. By using all the above modalities, lifestyle modifications, natural supplementation, and prescription medications when necessary, we support the body’s internal healing process to create health and vitality. The goal is to understand the root cause of disease and then treat the cause in order to remove the symptoms as opposed to alleviating symptoms without addressing the underlying problems.
