Functional Medicine is a medical model that focuses on treating the whole person rather than only focusing on symptoms. This approach helps to identify underlying causes of disease and treat them instead of simply managing symptoms.
Functional Medicine has become increasingly popular over the last decade. In fact, nearly half of U.S. adults now report having seen a functional medicine practitioner at some point in their lives. The field is still young, but many experts believe that its popularity will continue to grow as more people recognize the need for a new way of thinking about health and wellness.
There are several reasons why functional medicine may be beneficial to you. First, it provides a different perspective on health and wellness. Instead of just looking at the symptoms, functional medicine looks at the entire patient—their diet.
