What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine focuses on the ROOT CAUSE of a condition. Why do you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol - is it because you are deficient in a certain mineral? Is it genetics? Do you have a stressful lifestyle or is your diet the culprit?
Think about your emotional states as well - do you find that you get frustrated easily?
Many factors affect your health – functional medicine focuses on finding the root cause of your illness, not just treating the symptoms.
Functional Medicine and Nutrition
Functional nutrition is critical part of your plan. Functional nutrition goes above and beyond diet. Every aspect of functional nutrition helps to balance and keep the body running at its optimal health. Dr. Lee uses food and nutrition as a way to heal - not prescription medications. Additionally, Dr. Lee will assist you with meal planning, shopping lists and staying on track with your goals.
