The Functional Medicine approach detects and corrects the early stages of imbalance. Often a patient is experiencing a myriad ofsymptoms and their attempts at seeking treatment do not yield results. They may also have been are told that they are in standard range in laboratory measures or no labs can be provided as they do not meet criterion. A simple example is pain due to inflammation, there i no injury or any ortho condition yet pain persists as a result of unchecked inflammatory responses.
We are not diagnosing a medical condition but providing a snapshot into metabolic issues. These present as the symptoms that are impacting the patient. We use assessment tools to get a baseline measure of the patients overall metabolic functioning this is a driver for labs to be provided.
