WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Functional medicine is the practice of treating a patient using a holistic approach. Furthermore, it avoids using traditional medications that further tax the body’s organs. The goal of functional medicine is to get all of the patients organs to function at their highest capacity without creating more stress and dependency on the body. Once the body is brought back to balance and the organs are churning at an optimal rate, the body can begin to more easily heal itself.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH
Functional Medicine takes a holistic approach to your body’s health. What does that mean? It means that the body works synergistically. Therefor, it is important to make sure it is treated as a whole. By thoroughly analyzing blood panels and other forms of testing (stool samples, etc.), Los Angeles functional medicine doctors are able to dissect why one below average result can create a chain reaction in your body’s overall health. By treating the body as a whole, not just the symptom, holistic doctors are more equipped to address the root cause of the issue. Thus, it may be a more effective method of restoring true patient health.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE AND TRADITIONAL MEDICINE?
In traditional medicine, it is very common for a prescription drug to be prescribed for any sort of digestive issue or skin issue for example. Commonly reffered to as western medicine or modern medicine, these prescription drugs further tax your organs such as the liver and kidneys for example. This treatment is commonly successful at masking symptoms and making the patient feel like they can resume their normal lifestyle. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the problem. With the root cause of the issue not being resolved, it is very possible that leaving it untreated can cause more complicated health issues further down the line.
