Functional Medicine in Center City Philadelphia
The information on this page can change your life!
You may have heard the terms “Functional Medicine”, “Alternative Medicine” or “Integrative Therapy”. Quite often these terms are used without any real understanding of the concepts. Please allow me the opportunity to explain exactly what Functional Medicine is, and how it can change your life.
It is my belief that Functional Medicine will (and must) be the future of disease care in our country. Too often conventional medicine focuses solely on the symptoms of a disease. By simply addressing the symptoms, the patient will then feel as though the issue has been resolved when the symptoms have been altered, when in fact, most times the disease continues to advance and worsen. As a certified FM practitioner, my focus is finding the CAUSE of dysfunctional conditions within the body and incorporating natural therapies to help RESTORE health and well-being to my patients.
Complex degenerative conditions such as diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, auto-immune disease and cancer are on a rapid rise in our country and a “symptoms oriented” approach falls short of truly helping the body to heal, repair and restore vitality.
Conventional medicine is excellent, and necessary, for acute trauma care such as accidents and injuries, or when time is of the essence to stabilize a patient. However long-term care for chronic degenerative conditions is often palliative at best.
As a Functional Medicine Practitioner, my first course of action is to determine WHY the condition presents itself, followed by the protocol necessary to restore health and well-being.
Your body has an amazing ability to heal and repair and is fully equipped to do so! The mantra of the holistic community, “Nature needs no help, just no interference” is the cornerstone of my approach. My focus is to locate the “interference” factors in your body, remove them and allow nature to do what it does best: RESTORE AND MAINTAIN HEALTH. Proper coordination and communication with ALL systems of the body is what brings health. No system, no tissue and no cell is isolated in the body.
