What is Functional Healthcare?

What is Functional Healthcare?

Functional healthcare views symptoms as the body's way of letting us know that something is amiss. In the functional model, symptoms are purposeful indicators, and not random occurrences. Functional medicine attempts to remove stressors that cause the body to signal that something is wrong, and also offers support to weak areas. Functional medicine views signs and symptoms as important messengers that will lessen and disappear when their cause is alleviated.
