EXTRA! EXTRA! "GREAT NEWS" GRAND OPENING !!

If you’re the kind of person who values optimal health, or simply if you don’t feel good and you wish to find the cause of the problem of while not being dependent on drugs and preventing chronic disease instead of just treating the symptoms, functional medicine is a perfect match for you.

 

What are functional medicine practitioners?

 

Functional medicine practitioners or doctors are trained to find the cause of medical issues. Functional medicine uses an in depth history as well as state of the art, cutting edge, innovative testing, along with an in depth understanding of human physiology, to uncover what has gone wrong in the individual’s body.

 

A functional medicine practitioner may be physician of any discipline. It is possible to find Naturopathic, Medical, Osteopathic and Chiropractic functional medicine doctors. These doctors are the type who aren’t happy with conventional treatment methods used to treat injuries or other types of conditions. Functional medicine doctors possess a passion to find the origin of the patients’ disease to provide overall health and wellness.

 

Understanding Functional Medicine

 

Functional medicine is a specialty which requires an unbelievable amount of advanced training. These doctors need to have a firm grasp on the basics of anatomy, biochemistry. Ongoing training is necessary to keep up with the ever-advancing testing. Instead of prescribing drugs for symptoms, these doctors work to get their patients well by repairing and discovering the cause of the issue.

 

Certified functional medicine training is available to physicians of all disciplines. A certified medication doctor must first pass a series of examinations and must complete about 200 hours of functional medicine training. Licensed functional medication doctors are current on the newest testing and therapy procedures. It you have a choice, get good care of a certified medicine practitioner to receive the best form of care and treatment.

 

Functional medicine treatment can be essential when treating a common problem like diabetes. When a patient goes to a standard physician, at best, they are given lifestyle and diet education and medication. Together with the disease every case of diabetes is treated exactly the same. The dilemma is that no two people are exactly the same. If everyone is different shouldn’t the treatment be unique for each individual?

After a comprehensive medical history of a patient with diabetes, for example, a testing strategy to figure out what was wrong and how to repair it so this patient could get well may be performed by the functional medicine practitioner. Doctors may often have to check just about every bodily fluid for a broad array of problems.

 

Functional medicine practitioner or doctors can help patients replenish their body together with the things it is deficient in and rid his body of toxins. How do you believe these health problems would have responded to the standard disease based therapy strategy of a prescription medicine? Drugs do not tackle toxicities and deficiencies, and too often they add toxicity and side effects that are unpleasant as well.

 

The biggest objection to functional medication is that insurance does not cover a lot of the treatment or testing. It’s true that functional medicine doctors can sometimes cost you more in the start. However, the standard medical approach is more costly in the end. Consider a patient in the setting of the above example. What happens to their kidneys or heart with medical therapy. How expensive is a heart attack, stroke, kidney dialysis or substitute, cancer, or Crohn’s disease?Healthcare specialists know it is always better and cheaper to correct a problem early on, and the sooner the better.
