Functional Medicine Gets to the Root Cause of Disease

Functional Medicine is a personalized, systems biology–based medical approach that identifies and addresses the root cause of disease. It identifies underlying causes of health issues and empowers the patient to take their health into their own hands. With the guidance of a functional medicine physician, you'll learn with any diagnosis that it can be the result of more than one cause.
