How is Functional Medicine different from traditional medicine?

Traditional medicine is oriented toward acute care.  Even most primary physicians are not adequately trained to assess the underlying causes of complex, chronic disease and to apply strategies such as nutrition, diet, and exercise to both treat and prevent these illnesses in their patients.

By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the who person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.  Functional Medicine Practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interaction among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.  In this way Functional Medicine supports the unique expressions of health and vitality for each individual.

What is a Health Coach?

Health coaches support clients as they make positive healthy lifestyle changes. More specifically, the health coach supports and guides you while you discover how to accomplish your goals through small meaningful steps.

Functional Medicine health coaches are trained in the resources utilized by your provider and have the coaching skills to support the implementation of the recommended healthy lifestyle goals. The healthy lifestyle goals include: sleep and relaxation, nutrition as recommended by a functional health care provider, movement and exercise, stress and relationships as it influences health.

Health coaches provide encouragement, support and accountability throughout the process of making changes as you create the healthy life you desire.
