Functional medicine in Columbus oh
Functional Medicine Columbus, Ohio, is the future of conventional Medicine – available now. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.
Functional Medicine offers advanced nutritional and toxicity laboratory testing that is second best to none. To detect and correct body dysfunction early, functional medicine laboratory testing values have been tightened to optimal values.
Functional Medicine in Columbus goes above and beyond the standard of care
Functional Medicine exceeds the standard of care by broadening the scope of testing. Functional Medicine looks into more sophisticated tests not usually conducted by your GP. For instance, you may struggle to lose weight (weight loss resistance) and want to understand why.
Functional Medicine would test for factors such as leaky gut syndrome, food sensitivities, adrenal stress, advanced hormone testing, chronic infection screening, heavy metals, organic acids, etc.
Rather than simply aiming to provide symptom relief, like providing artificial hormones, functional Medicine will identify and remove the underlying cause.
Why find a functional medicine doctor near me?
As the graphic above shows, a diagnosis can result from more than one cause. For example, depression can be caused by many factors, including inflammation. Likewise, a cause such as inflammation may lead to several different diagnoses, including depression.
Unfortunately, with westernized Medicine, two patients who have the same condition, like depression or high blood pressure, are treated with the same medications, even though the underlying causes could be drastically different.
The precise manifestation of each cause depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle, and only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefits beyond symptom suppression.
