What is functional medicine?

In this video, Dr. Flannery explains what functional medicine is

 

Functional medicine focuses on correcting physiological function versus overriding the problem with drugs or surgery. Using science-based lab tests, assessments, and in-office exams, we look at physiology and where the dysfunction lies.

Functional medicine recognizes the body is a highly complex web of interrelated functions. It’s impossible to consider hormone balance without also considering the health of the immune system, or to address brain function without addressing gut health. All these systems act in concert with one another and not as isolated systems. This approach requires an in-depth knowledge of physiology and how the different systems in the body work together.

Going beyond drugs or surgery to address the root cause

Many of our patients have been to numerous doctors and sometimes even the top medical clinics in the country. Some have also made the rounds of various alternative doctors. They’re often told their lab tests are fine and nothing more can be done.

In functional medicine, we focus on treating the person, not the disease. We don’t look at what drug or which surgery might mask or remove a problem. Nor do we mask symptoms with herbs or the latest nutrient. Instead, we examine a person’s physiology to see where the breakdown has occurred and how we can unwind vicious cycles that perpetuate autoimmune and inflammatory disorders:

  • Autoimmune disease: Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, multiple sclerosis, Sjorgen’s, vitiligo, etc.

  • Hormone imbalances: PCOS, female hair loss, low male testosterone, PMS, menopause symptoms, etc.

  • Chronic health conditions: Joint pain, insomnia, allergies, skin rashes, weight loss issues, IBS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, etc.

  • Brain-related: Brain fog, memory loss, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, traumatic brain injury, trouble focusing, learning difficulties, ADHD, ADD, autism spectrum, etc.

  • Vaccine damage: Gardisil vaccine, other vaccine damage

Functional medicine is not for the person who wants a quick fix to mask a symptom. Our patients are interested in optimal health and are willing to do the work to achieve it. This may mean making changes to your diet or lifestyle, but can result in genuine, lasting corrections to your condition.

Health is not the absence of disease. It is the proper functioning of one’s physiology. Often doctors are looking so hard for the disease they miss the lack of function.
