Is Integrative Medicine Right For You?
Complete wellness is much more than simply the absence of disease. It is about balance – the balance of body, mind and spirit. And having that balance restores your vitality, promotes wellness, prevents disease and helps you live your life to its fullest potential.
Are you tired of being tired? Do chronic issues like headaches, abdominal pain, gas and bloating, or back and neck pain cause you to miss out on the enjoyable things in life? Suffering from a variety of daily symptoms keep you sitting on the sidelines while life moves on around you.
There are root causes of your chronic conditions, and very often visiting a variety of medical specialists and undergoing endless clinical testing yields no answers. The human body is complex and must be treated as a whole rather than being seen as a bunch of separate systems. Mind-body health is more than lab work and diagnostics; it requires a comprehensive treatment modality that encompasses all systems working together.
Integrative and functional medicine practitioners can help, by seeing you, the whole person, rather than a collection of symptoms. We partner with you on your journey to wellness and balance so that you can take an active role in your treatment. We integrate functional and traditional medicine with treatments like acupuncture and osteopathic manipulative therapy to dig down deep to those root causes to restore your health and wellness and help you live your best life.
Functional medicine is how we get beneath those symptoms to discover the true underlying causes. We look for the relationships between your chronic symptoms and examine your lifestyle choices, genetic history and the environment you live in to address every factor possible. If you are tired of not getting any definitive answers and being told that all of your diagnostic testing is “normal,” then functional medicine is for you.
Conditions commonly treated with integrative or functional medicine include:
- Digestive issues
- Chronic fatigue
- Thyroid diseases
- Back and neck pain
- Muscle and joint pain
