|How to survive in spite of a fast food lifestyle|
We want to get you on the road to health - sometimes that means finding what deficiencies you have to fix before you can start to build health - but we are determined to help you find your path.
We believe in Functional Medicine. It is defined as: "affecting the operation, rather than the structure, of an organ" In other words, you can address a stomach ulcer by surgery, cutting out the damaged area - affecting the structure - or you can address the function of the stomach so the body is not creating ulcers.
Medicine is: "Medical practice or treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs, usually involving systems of holistic or alternative medicine."
The focus of functional medicine is promoting health beyond just the absence of disease.
The focus is finding the cause of the problem and getting the body
to fix that. You might need to focus on building healthy
nerves when they are painful, or addressing heavy metal toxicity
when it is raising blood pressure. There are many causes of
symptoms. Finding the actual cause and addressing it by
building health is functional medicine.
