As a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner (CFMP), I work with clients from all over North America as well as patients referred to me by family physicians, specialists, Naturopaths, Chiropractors, and other health professionals. Many patients suffer from long-term chronic disease and disorders and find that managing symptoms is not enough.
Functional Medicine Consulting investigates the cause of the disease (dis-ease) in the body by identifying pathways of dysfunction and correcting imbalances, resulting in restored function. As a Functional Medicine Consultant, I believe that treating the patient who has the disease, rather than the disease that the patient has, results in a better outcome in healing the body and living a better quality of life.
Functional Medicine Practitioners/Consultants work with each individual and their doctor(s) as a team. By thoroughly evaluating each case through a complete assessment of health history (i.e., a comprehensive functional assessment, analysis of recent blood chemistry reports in concert with a review of complaints and symptoms), We can determine dysfunction(s) in body systems. More testing may be required for a more precise result.
By gathering more pieces of the puzzle, we can collaboratively work towards bringing the body back into balance for much-improved health, mood, and longevity.
