Integrative & Functional Medicine Q & A
What is Functional Medicine? And Integrative medicine?
Functional Medicine is the medicine of “why” and of trying to understand the root cause of a patient’s symptoms, illness or condition. Looking at the vast number of possible factors impacting a person’s health, including their genetics, environment, nutritional status, stress, toxins, and their personal belief systems, a functional medicine physician assesses the core imbalances that need to be rebalanced to help that patient reclaim optimal health.
Integrative medicine employs a wide variety of modalities to help a person get well and maintain their health, including Western and non-Western therapies. At Five Stones, we include nutritional therapies, massage therapy, nutritional supplements, botanical medicines, personal fitness training, energy medicine, hypnosis, acupuncture, and others in our treatment options for our patients.
