We Can Help Overcome
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
What Are Chronic Degenerative Diseases?
If you live somewhere where there’s snow, you may be familiar with the wear and tear on the roads over time. Such wear and tear is particularly common during the winter, when ice and snow freeze the pavement, causing cracks as the underlying surface expands and contracts at a different rate than the asphalt. Plow trucks and salt also work to break apart the smooth surface. Even though it is unintended, the result is a patchy, pothole-ridden road in the spring.
A similar process happens in our body and it’s called degenerative disease, but snow and ice aren’t the culprit here. In degenerative diseases, parts of the body break down at a faster rate than normal over time. These might be caused by environmental factors or genetics, and some causes aren’t fully understood yet.
Degenerative diseases refer to medical problems that worsen over time. These degenerative diseases may affect the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), bones, blood vessels or heart. Sometimes, certain medications and therapies can treat these degenerative diseases.
