What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine (FM) takes the innovation of twenty-first century science and combines it with the timeless art of listening, storytelling, and applying personal wisdom to the practice of medicine. FM honors the innate wisdom and healing potential of the body by discovering its truth: what it needs and what it must be rid of to heal and, ultimately, to thrive.
The patient and their story are always at the center of what we do, providing the context and meaning of the work we do together. Our job as FM physicians is to listen carefully to that story, and decipher the unique systems biology, environmental influences, and needs of each individual as they present with the distinctive signature of their dysfunction, illness, and family legacy.
FM is by nature “slow medicine,” requiring time to carefully consider the unique lives, aspirations, and needs of our clients.
