Functional medicine relies on a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages the data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes. By addressing root causes, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions.
Lifestyle Medicine is defined as a scientific approach to decreasing disease risk and illness burden by utilizing lifestyle interventions such as nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction and rest; with the goal of changing behavior towards a healthy lifestyle.
