The concept of “functional health & wellness” springs from the idea that healthcare is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, the functional approach seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.
The principles that characterize Functional Health & Wellness care are as follows:
- Practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. A doctor will only make a clinical decision after listening carefully to a patient’s history, documenting their personal choices as they relate to diet, exercise and lifestyle.
- Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches.
- A prioritization is placed on utilizing the most advanced diagnostic testing that is available.
- Patients are not left feeling that they are taking on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encourage to take an active role in improving how they feel.
Utilizing the functional health & wellness approach can allow patients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope.
