Functional Medicine – A Quest for Health

Understanding Functional Medicine:

Today people are seeking alternative methods of medical care. Functional medicine is a holistic approach to treatment and aspires to treat a patient not only physically but also on an emotional and spiritual level. This treatment is based on the assumption that every individual is unique and has a distinct biochemistry. Functional medicine, often referred to as the medicine of the future is a holistic treatment which takes into account the well being and lifestyle of an individual. The treatments are usually personalised where the patient also plays an active role in the treatment as often radical changes in diet and lifestyle are required.

The treatment is anchored on the philosophy that dynamic balance exists between an individual’s internal and external factors. Disease or illness occurs when this balance is disturbed. Functional medicine is rooted in two simple scientific principles which advocate adding what is deficient to … Read More

Tips For Conquering Peripheral Neuropathy With Functional Medicine

The vast majority of Earth’s population does not deal with any chronic medical conditions that severely curtail their ability to function on a daily basis, but those who do deal with such conditions can attest to the fact the rest of the population is not missing out on much – and when it comes to conditions that can curtail one’s quality of life, there are few that rival peripheral neuropathy; if you deal with peripheral neuropathy, you know that you can deal with everything from decreased motor and sensory abilities to numbness, tingling, and pain in the nerves to constipation and incontinence – and one of the most frustrating things of all about this condition is that, in spite of the great medical advancements of the last couple hundred years, the common “solution” to this problem is to treat the symptoms, while leaving the root of the problem alone.

Functional Medicine & Chiropractic In Treatment of Concussions

Concussions are a form of traumatic injury to the head accompanied by temporary impairment of brain function. This kind of damage is often referred to as mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) or mild head injury (MHI) and is one of the most common kinds of external damage in the head and neck region.

In 2013, about 2.8 million traumatic brain injury-related visits to the emergency department took place in the United States. Modern studies reveal that the most common mechanisms of TBI are:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Falls
  • A hit by or against a certain object

Roughly speaking, all concussions can be divided into two major groups: sports-related and not related to sports. Although the treatment in both cases is roughly universal, patients who had received a sport-related concussion often worry about how quickly they would be able to return to their training sessions, games and tournaments. A major part of … Read More

What Is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is an evolutionary practice that addresses the unique healthcare needs of those in the 21st century.

Rather than treating just the symptoms of any disease, functional medicine focuses on the underlying cause of disease by using an approach that focuses on the body’s systems and their primary functions. Practitioners work to engage the patient in a partnership that will lead to overall better health and wellness.

Functional medicine practitioners focus on the whole person, rather than just the isolated constellation of symptoms. This shifts medicine from traditional sick care to a more patient-centered approach. These practitioners spend a great deal of time with their patients and listen to histories, while also evaluating the environment, lifestyle, and genetic factors that may play a role in long-term health and the development of chronic disease. By doing it this way, practitioners offer their patients a unique experience in healthcare, which will … Read More
