"The functional medicine approach is different for each person since each treatment is tailored to that person's specific illness.
Functional medicine doctors identify the root causes of an illness.
Your relationship with a functional medicine doctor is a more collaborative partnership: the doctor considers your input
while advising you on healthy choices and treatments, as they relate to your condition and treatment.
With functional medicine, the care given is based on the system affected, not the condition diagnosed.
For example, a diagnosis of depression may have multiple causes.
A functional medicine doctor will research and treat each cause, leading to a personalized treatment approach."
