About Functional Medicine

The principles of functional medicine align with osteopathy, as both are focused on finding the root cause of disease. Like osteopathy, functional medicine looks at how all of the body’s systems are interrelated, as well as how patients relate to their environment, genetics, and lifestyle. A partnership between doctor and patient informs lifestyle changes, and more natural approaches for restoring health are pursued whenever possible. Practicing from a functional medicine perspective enhances the range of diagnostic and treatment methods that we are able to provide our patients.
