What Is Functional Medicine?
The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.
The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:
- Functional medicine practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. Dr. Sieberg will listen carefully to a patient’s history, documenting their personal choices and medicinal interactions.
- Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches, with nutrition always utilized as the first step in prevention.
- A prioritization is placed on utilizing the most modern medical equipment and lab tests that are available. Instead of using antiquated equipment and standard lab testing for outdated treatments, newer devices and outside lab panels can treat the complex network of interconnected systems that make up the body
- Patients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are armed with information and encouraged to take an active role in improving their health.
Utilizing the functional medicine approach can allow patients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope. Instead of relying on medications that only manage symptoms and provide temporary relief, the team at Sieberg Integrative Health Solutions search for the underlying causes to health issues, and treat accordingly.
Since the founding of his practice, Dr. Sieberg and his wife, Kelly, have helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as chronic fatigue, autoimmune thyroiditis, hormone dysregulation, and more.
