What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease rather than treating the symptoms.
This approach is completely individualized, patient-centered, and science-based. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
One of the primary pillars of Functional Medicine is the specialty testing which is not performed by mainstream laboratories. There are only a handful of laboratories nationwide that perform these tests. Here is a general overview of these tests and what they cover.

Functional Medicine is the future of healthcare.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” – Thomas Edison
