What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a personalized, systems-oriented approach to health and wellness that addresses the root cause of chronic disease conditions. Functional Medicine focuses on the interconnectedness of various bodily systems and how they interact with lifestyle and environmental factors. The Functional Medicine approach aims to understand how an individual’s genetic makeup, environment, and lifestyle choices impact their health and contribute to the development of chronic diseases.

Functional Medicine practitioners take a science-based holistic view of their patients, considering all aspects of their lives, including their diet, exercise habits, sleep patterns, stress levels, and exposure to toxins. They work with patients to develop individualized treatment plans that address the underlying causes of their health issues, rather than just treating their symptoms.

Overall, the goal of Functional Medicine is to help individuals achieve optimal health and wellness, and to prevent and reverse chronic diseases through a personalized, integrated approach.


What do Functional Medicine Doctors treat?

Functional Medicine practitioners often work with patients who have not found relief through conventional medical treatments, or who wish to address the root cause of their health issues using lifestyle and science-based holistic therapies. They also provide preventative care, helping individuals maintain optimal health and prevent the development of chronic diseases. At EvoHealth we provide a comprehensive blend of preventative, personalized and holistic healthcare in order to promote optimal health and wellness. 


Functional Medicine doctors treat a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  1. Chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, and autoimmune disorders
  2. Mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression and ADHD
  3. Digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  4. Hormonal imbalances such as thyroid disorders and HPA dysfunction
  5. Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia

Functional Medicine can complement and work alongside conventional medicine in providing comprehensive care for patients. While conventional medicine primarily focuses on treating symptoms through the use of medications and other interventions, Functional Medicine seeks to identify and address the underlying causes of a patient’s health issues.

Functional Medicine practitioners often collaborate with conventional medical doctors, sharing information and insights to develop a more complete understanding of a patient’s health. This can lead to more effective treatment plans that address the root cause of a patient’s symptoms and improve overall health outcomes.

In some cases, a Functional Medicine approach may be used in conjunction with conventional medical treatments, such as when a patient is taking medications for a chronic condition but also wants to address the root cause of their illness through lifestyle changes and other interventions.

Overall, the integration of Functional Medicine with conventional medicine can provide a more comprehensive and individualized approach to healthcare, with the goal of improving patient outcomes and promoting long-term health and wellness.
