Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to more patient-centered approach, our functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among the genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

In this way, St. MIchael Hospital's Functional Medicine supports the unique espression of health and vitality for each individual.

For treatment, Functional Medicine practitioners use a combination of natural agents (supplements, herbs, nutraceuticals and homeopathics), nutritional and lifestyle changes, spiritual/emotional counseling, and pharmaceuticals, if necessary to prod a patient’s physiology back to an optimal state. In addition, educating the patient about their condition empowers them to take charge of their own health, ultimately leading to greater success in treatment.
