FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE IS HIGHLY COST EFFECTIVE FOR PATIENTS…

as it focuses on prevention and health promoting lifestyle changes and sustainable treatments that address the underlying causes of dysfunction, restoring patients to health. Conventional medical treatments are often expensive medications that must be taken indefinitely and do not address the underlying problem, but merely suppress the symptoms. For example, if there was a fire at your house, instead of treating the fire, you only treated the smoke. Medications are only treat the smoke, the fire rages on, and that why patient don’t get better. The drugs that you are currently taking for your chronic conditions, (diabetes, cancer, arthiritis, hypertension, hypercholesteremia), are only addressing the tip of the ice berg/symptoms. Functional medicine deals with finding the underlying root of your condition.

Once we correct the underlying cause of your condition, we can then fix the problem!
