Lithia and Tampa Functional Medicine
There’s a growing trend of people seeking holistic/wellness health practitioners who treat the whole person and address the underlying cause of their health concerns rather than the symptoms. If you’re looking for a natural, drug-free alternative to treating your health condition, then you have come to the right place.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is neither conventional nor alternative medicine. It’s a combination of the best elements of both, and it represents the future of medicine.
In conventional medicine, there’s a doctor for every part of your body: cardiologists for the heart, gastroenterologists for the digestive system, neurologists for the brain and nervous system, and dermatologists for your skin.
In functional medicine, we see the body as an interconnected whole, within a larger environment. We recognize that in order to treat one part of the body, all of the other parts must also be considered. This is why we focus on the root causes of your health so you can get well and stay well.
Functional Medicine is patient-centered process that takes into account all aspects that affects your health: your lifestyle, your well-being, what you eat, your work environment, your relationships and communication with others, how you relax and play, your hobbies, what medications you have taken, how well your digestive system functions, and what chemicals you’ve been exposed to.
In working with you as a patient, we take a step back and try to see common features that might link all the health conditions that you might be experiencing. By looking for the commonalities and patterns, we can offer interventions that affect multiple pathways, helping you recover your health faster and more completely.
The science and strength of Functional Medicine begins with a detailed history. The goal is to gather clues to get a better understanding of why the body has gone into a state of dis-ease.
We use cutting-edge diagnostic tools including blood, urine, saliva and stool laboratory panels to objectively measure the body’s internal physiological pathways of tissue repair, immune function, energy production, detoxification, and metabolic signaling.
We then use this data to find the problem, and nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, supplements, stress management, detoxification, lifestyle changes, and—only in some cases when necessary—prescription medications to eliminate triggers and restore proper function and balance to achieve optimal health.
Deep and lasting healing are only possible when the root causes of illness are addressed. By understanding the core systems of the body, how they are related, and how their function can be restored, many chronic illnesses can be prevented and even reversed.
