The beauty of the functional medicine approach is that it is applicable to a wide range of conditions and diseases. It is safe, effective and beneficial to those who want to achieve an improved state of health and prevent future illness, as well as those who are suffering from a chronic condition and taking multiple medications.
The clinical approach of functional medicine is to search for the root cause of the disease or condition. The clinician is always asking “why did this symptom start?” and “why is it progressing?”. Causes of any disease could be nutrient imbalances, hormonal imbalances, poor gut health, excess environmental toxins, poor sleep, poor stress response, poor diet and exercise, as well as poor stress management – to name a few. Two people may be diagnosed with the same disease, but the causes may be completely different. Therefore, each of their treatment plans would be different as well. Searching for the person’s individual root cause, and creating a holistic treatment plan, makes the functional medicine approach so effective for such a variety of conditions.
Below is a basic list to give you some idea of the conditions routinely seen and how they are viewed within a systems biology-based model within functional medicine.
This list is not exhaustive and the summaries are brief. It is intended to provide an overview of some conditions treated by a Functional Medicine provider.
