Functional Medicine includes elements of integrative medicine. It takes a deeper approach to overall wellness.
Here are three major benefits of Functional Medicine:
- Functional Medicine creates a personalized health plan. You're a unique individual, not a protocol. Standard American medical care focuses on symptom management and it often stops there. This approach doesn't take into account your unique circumstance, overall history, or lifestyle, it is much harder to get to the root because of health concerns and conditions. Functional Medicine specializes in making a comprehensive view of patient health to reach solutions and not just applying the bandaids.
- Functional Medicine creates a patient and doctor relations. Functional Medicine is unique in that it puts patients and doctors relationships first. Dr. Lozier provides an in-depth consultation that reviews your extensive personal history and medical concerns, reviewing the minor details that matter towards your health journey and discovery of what is making you unhealthy or sick. This strategy allows Dr. Lozier to gather the fine details needed to assist you in your healing journey and reach goals and solutions.
- Functional Medicine discovers and treats core disorders rather than minimized symptoms. Getting healthy requires knowing what is making you sick. When you present your history to Dr. you begin a journey of discovering the big and small details that matter towards building a nutrition guide and reaching your specific and personal health goals.
If you want to get healthy again, you have to look at what lifestyle circumstances and environmental challenges are impending on your overall health. Functional Medicine helps you identify what you need to alter and adjust in order to get healthy.
