Jacksonville Residents Ask: What is Integrative and Functional Medicine?

Functional MedicineMany patients come to us, seeking to understand not just the symptoms of their health concerns, but the root of the problem. With health information becoming increasingly accessible online, many patients are eager to fully grasp the circumstances that have led to their state of ill-health, so that they can work with their healthcare provider to return to a state of balance.

In growing numbers, individuals are coming to terms with the fact that whole body wellness is a complex state that involves many factors in their life. This comprehensive and whole-body approach is exactly the direction we take in integrative (also known as functional) medicine, to heal patients from the inside out.

How Can Integrative and Functional Medicine Help?

The basic foundation of integrative medicine rests upon the belief that, by understanding the root cause of the health concern, the practitioner and patient can work together to make changes that will benefit the patient’s well-being for the long-term. To that end, integrative medicine includes a variety of therapies that can address all aspects of an individual’s life experience, including nutrition, hormone restoration, micronutrient restoration, supplements, detoxification programs, stress-management techniques, exercise and more.

Is Integrative Medicine Approved by My Primary Physician?

Due to the holistic nature of this approach, we believe integrative medicine can be a complementary component to your current health and wellness plan. We invite communication between you and all members of your care team. Open communication is key to bringing these different health modalities together in a way that will be the most supportive to your overall wellbeing.
