Traditional medicine often focuses on the symptoms of a given illness, but doesn’t alway address the root cause of these symptoms. Functional medicine is different because it seeks to focus on the core issues that are causing your symptoms. Rather than focusing on the symptoms exclusively, we view your symptoms as a guide to the real issue that’s affecting your health negatively.
Functional Medicine uses epigenetics in helping understand how symptoms point to the core issues of our health. Specifically, epigenetics is the study of how changes in our genes are expressed when acted upon by our nutrition and our environment.
Modern science has identified specific gene mutations that affect our body’s ability to develop certain chronic conditions and diseases. Fortunately, we can identify these specific mutations in an individual and target their healthcare using preventative medicine, supplement support, and specific nutrition counseling to alter these gene expressions so that clients who may be predisposed to certain illnesses can be proactive in delaying or avoiding these illnesses and changes in their health.
