Functional or Integrative Health Care

Eighty percent of chronic conditions that decrease the quality of our life is caused by our lifestyle, such as our diet, stress, lack of exercise , good quality sleep, relationships, toxic exposure and many more. Functional health is science-based care that treats the underlying cause for chronic mental and physical conditions. It promotes wellness by focusing on the unique aspects of each person and employs individual tailored interventions to restore a physiological, psychological, lifestyle, relationship and spititual balance that then allows our bodies to do the healing it was designed for.

Key Components of Functional Health

Biological Individuality; we are all differenet and react differently to interventions that strive to optimize our body/mind balance.

Interconnectedness of organ function – chronic illnesses often comprise multiple organ systems and are only resolved as a complex system. Working on digestion, for example, without working on detoxification or immunity may be ineffective.

Patient centered approach; treating the individual, with knowledge of their specific history, genetic makeup, experiences and lifestyle, we can tailor more accurate and effective interventions.

Health and dis-ease is a continuum, with poor quality of life, “illness”, dis-ease, and death at one end and health and vitality at the other. By understanding that most systems operate somewhere between dysfunctional and optimal levels, we judge health as an interconnected psycho-physiological-lifestyle process.

Functional or integrative health has become the framework by which we assist people to improve their quality of life. Our challenge is to develop the most accurate, insightful understanding possible and work with you to implement a solution in multiple lifestyle and physiological systems to address the cause, rather than the symptoms of dis-ease. Our aim is to assist you to improve the quality of your life and to regain your vitality.
