Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a science-based medical approach to addressing the systematic and biochemical aspects of disease process without suppressing the physiology. Extensive evaluation is done to find the root cause of the disease process. In the Functional Medicine model a process like depression is not just treated by taking prescription antidepressants. Depression may have many causes including issues with serotonin, dopamine, adrenal fatigue, DHEA, testosterone, liver detoxification pathways, absorption through digestive system, insomnia, yeast, mold, and other physiological factors.
