As people become more and more frustrated with doctors who have little time for them, in a system that is outdated and broken, those practicing Functional Medicine are taking their place. Functional Medicine practitioners look at conditions that most allopathic doctors are not skilled at treating or do not have the time for. Instead of writing prescriptions for medications that can be dangerous and often don't work, we in the Functional Medicine world look at lifestyle habits to find out who the person is. Then, we design an individual program of wholesome nutrition, recommend supplements and herbs, appropriate movement and tools to manage stress. What a concept! This empowers each one of us to choose the habits that will allow us to live a long life and be as healthy and vibrant as we wish, from one generation to the next.
