Functional medicine has been through the medical practice evolution that has been addressing the healthcare needs of the 21 century. It has started to shift the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a much more patient-centered approach. Functional medicine has addressed the whole person and not by isolating a set of symptoms. With functional medicine, local practitioners can spend time with their patients by listening to their history while also looking at the interactions from genetics, environmental, and lifestyle factors that may influence long-term health and complex chronic diseases. So in a way, functional medicine can support the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

By making this change, from a disease-centered focus to a patient-centered approach, local physicians are able to support the patient’s healing process. By viewing health and illness as part of a cycle, all the components of the human biological system can interact dynamically with the environment. With this process, functional medicine can seek and identify genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors that may shift a person’s health from illness to well-being.
