Several years ago, I left the practice of conventional-style medicine after I realized that, while very effective for acute, immediately life-threatening conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, trauma, etc; it just wasn't the answer for most chronic health conditions. I was weary of throwing endless pharmaceuticals at people in hopes to make their symptoms better, while never really getting to the root cause of the symptoms in the the first place. In addition, I just wasn't able to spend the time necessary to address the health of the whole person--body, mind, and soul. So I said goodbye to the "pill for every ill" approach and embraced Functional Medicine.
I have never looked back.
It is my hope that when you read the description of Functional Medicine that it will resonate with you as much as it did with me.
