Functional Medicine Q & A

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a science-based, patient-centered branch of medicine that considers the human body as an integrated system, rather than a series of unrelated parts. 

Functional medicine specialists take your environment, emotions, and history into account when looking for the source of your symptoms. Functional medicine focuses on healing the underlying causes of your symptoms so that you can achieve optimal health.

How does functional medicine treat symptoms or disease?

Medika Holistic Wellness Center in Boynton Beach, Florida understands that your symptoms or disease may have a complex series of underlying and intertwined causes. 

On the other hand, a number of symptoms may be caused by a single core problem, such as inflammation.

Before treating you, we will identify all of the factors that could be contributing to your distress. 

Unlike a traditional doctor, who may only spend 15 minutes with you and order a series of tests that may or may not give you the answers you need, we will devote an hour or more to your consultation. 

During that time, he asks you questions, listens carefully to your answers, and conducts an examination, so that he can learn about the key factors that influence your health, including your:
