Of total healthcare costs in the United States, more than 75% is due to chronic conditions.1 The primary driver of chronic disease is the interaction among genes, activities of daily living (lifestyle), and the environment.
A major premise of Functional Medicine is that, with science, clinical wisdom, and innovative tools, we can identify many of the underlying causes of chronic disease and intervene to remediate the clinical imbalances, even before overt disease is present.
Functional Medicine directly addresses these imbalances by using a systems-oriented approach [see below] and by engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.
