Your health is like a puzzle with many pieces that are all designed to fit together. Traditional medicine looks at each piece as an isolated symptom. At Path of Life Functional Medicine, we see the whole picture and help you reclaim your good health.
Traditional medicine relies on different treatment plans—and often different practitioners—for each symptom, while functional medicine addresses the root causes of symptoms. But what does that mean? In the traditional medical approach, if you have high blood pressure, you’ll be prescribed medication. As long as you keep taking it, your symptoms are under control. But the moment you stop the medication, your blood pressure goes up. The medication wasn’t addressing the underlying reason for your high blood pressure; it was only managing your symptoms. In a functional medicine approach, you learn to change your core habits—what you eat, what you do, and the people you spend time with. These small changes actually heal the underlying condition and lead to lasting health.
The Core Traits of Functional Medicine:
- Practitioners will only make a medical recommendation after listening carefully to a patient’s history, personal choices, and medicinal interactions.
- Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches.
- Practitioners use the best tool for the task. Functional Medicine is leading the industry with the use of cutting-edge devices that treat the complex network of interconnected systems within the body.
- Patients are included in the process. Rather than being passive or feeling bullied, they are empowered with information and encouraged to take an active role in improving their health.
