Functional Medicine is an approach to Western Medicine with the focus on treating the underlying cause of disease instead of the symptoms.  Both the practitioner and patient are engaged in the therapeutic relationship with the patient’s story residing at the core of the clinical exchange.  Treatment is made with tools that assess environment, lifestyle, diet, stress, and psychological, spiritual, and social factors.
