What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a unique approach to health care that seeks to answer the question “why?”  By looking for the “why” behind a patient’s symptoms, we can address and treat the roots of illness – instead of masking symptoms by prescribing medicine. Finding the root cause of a patient’s symptoms requires a deep dive into the patient’s history, environment, lifestyle, genetics, and more. A thorough physical exam also provides key data regarding a patient’s nutritional status and possible toxin exposures. The interplay between all of these aspects guides a practitioner to create a personalized care plan for YOU. At MEND, we don’t create care plans based off of generic protocols – we base our care plans off of your unique needs. Get answers and get on the MEND!
