Functional Medicine


What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying cause of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and empowering the patient in their own health journey. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just symptoms.

Functional lab tests help determine how the body or organ is really working, or functioning, as opposed to other medical tests which measure pathological breakdown and disease.
Functional medicine can be practiced by an MD, DO, or ND as well as some nurses.  MDs and DOs obtain functional medical education after graduation to learn a more natural approach to medicine.  At our clinic, you get cutting edge testing methods and therapies while also getting the benefit of a naturopathic philosophy which uses the least invasive and natural therapies first.

“The current traditional medical system has forgotten how to fully restore health.  Functional Medicine answers this by addressing and resolving the cause of illness, not just the symptoms.  This is the Future of Healthcare”

~ Dr. Eskender Getachew
