What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is a patient-centered approach to healthcare that delves into the root causes of illness to promote overall well-being.
Our practitioners spend time actively listening to patients, gathering comprehensive histories, and examining genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that may impact health. Treatment plans are highly personalized, integrating the latest scientific research from genomics, biochemistry, and physiology.
Conditions commonly addressed include chronic diseases, infertility, autoimmune disorders, gastrointestinal issues, hormonal imbalances, and metabolic disorders. This approach provides a comprehensive and evidence-based framework that seeks to restore balance and support the body’s natural healing processes.
Functional Medicine for Fertility
Functional medicine provides tailored solutions for women facing infertility, offering targeted interventions to address the intricate factors influencing reproductive health. Through a holistic assessment, practitioners delve into hormonal imbalances, scrutinizing levels of estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid hormones crucial for a healthy reproductive cycle.
Personalized treatment plans are crafted, addressing deficiencies and optimizing body weight, while also considering gut health and inflammation. Genetic testing may be employed to identify potential genetic factors influencing reproductive challenges.
By honing in on these specific aspects, functional medicine aims not only to increase the chances of conception but also to enhance the overall well-being of women navigating the journey of trying to conceive.
