Functional Medicine can help with all symptoms that you are experiencing- the model for functional medicine seeks to answer the root of symptoms, then providing personalized and effective care for your needs. Functional Medicine takes a nutrition based approach, starting with diet, and balancing physical/mental/spiritual health to give you the keys to take charge of your own health. Your body is one whole, made up of many parts- we believe that each small symptom is a contributing factor to overall wellbeing, and functional medicine can give you the info/tools you would need to find healing! In functional medicine you will be listened to fully, as well as given the most diligent care for your health. From adrenal distress to diabetes, depression, arthritis, and heart disease! In short: functional medicine can help(:

Functional medicine helps with determining the cause of ailment rather than just treating symptoms. It focuses on the "why" of any health challenge. It is always best to heal and address the root cause of a problem rather than just the symptoms. This helps with addressing an issue permanently rather than treating symptoms where they will keep coming back.
