Functional Medicine: How Can it Help Your Health?

Taught by Kathleen Mitchell, RDH, CHHC. 

Functional Medicine is being referred to as the medicine of the 21st Century. With Functional Medicine we are doing things differently and getting different results which is wonderful because we, as a nation, are getting sicker and sicker. In Functional Medicine we look at the whole person and listen to their whole story. We swim upstream to look for their root causes of illness and focus on wellness, rather than diagnosing a disease and treating the ill with a pill. Functional Medicine personalizes plans for each individual patient and is a working relationship between the patient and the practitioner, where the patient assumes responsibility for their health  

As a Functional Nutritionist, I work through the lens of Functional Medicine where we know that illness is an imbalance. I work with my clients to help them create balance in their lives in both the foods that feed them (lifestyle) and the foods on their forks (nutrition). I teach my clients how our bodies function. When we understand how food meets function then we understand how to turn illness into wellness.
