Philosophy of Functional Medicine

Holistic means whole life —
every aspect of your being

Functional medicine considers the underlying causes of conditions or diseases and requires partnership between the patient and the practitioner.

It is patient-centered, rather than ailment-centered and considers the whole person, rather than a single symptom.

Expect to spend time with Dr. McAlvanah — time is an essential component of functional medicine, because she wants to hear and understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that are unique to you.

Functional medicine begins with science – lab work – but the solutions extend far beyond the ability of a pill to suppress a symptom. Instead, functional medicine allows practitioners to consider the impact of┬álifestyle, diet, even environment on the patient and seek real, sustainable solutions.
