What is functional medicine?

The traditional healthcare model waits for you to experience symptoms and treats your symptoms as they arise. However, we know that the cornerstone of true health optimization is prevention. Functional medicine is predicated upon the idea of caring for you as a whole person and treating the underlying cause of illness. It looks at how your environment, nutrition, lifestyle, toxic burden, and genetics impact your functional health. Peak Health Institute uses the principles and therapies of functional medicine to treat and optimize your health and wellness before you start to feel unwell.

How does functional medicine work?

Functional medicine, at the most basic level, looks at all aspects of your well-being to optimize the function of your biological systems. Since no two things—especially in the body—exist in isolation, functional medicine treats you as a whole person, not your illness or the specific system exhibiting symptoms. We consider your physical, emotional, dietary, and mental health to create a complete picture of your overall wellness and truly optimize your health.

With this information, we curate a care plan individually catered to you and your specific needs. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. At Peak Health Institute, every patient is an individual with unique needs and requirements and will always be treated as such.

Functional medicine offers patients a different kind of healthcare experience that is rooted in prevention, not treatment. This is not to say that we don’t treat; we treat you, but we don’t wait for symptoms to appear before recommending therapies to optimize your wellness. During your initial consultation, we will work with you to gain a clear understanding of your overall health and health history. By understanding your lifestyle, unique challenges, and your health goals, we can begin to create an individualized care plan that will exceed your expectations. Some common areas we will look at during this consultation include:

  • Nutrition and diet
  • Health history
  • Chronic lifestyle diseases
  • Sleep habits
  • Exercise and activity level
  • Emotional health
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Current stressors
  • Any current illness or symptoms you are experiencing

By creating an overall understanding of your health and identifying the root cause of health issues,we can begin to create a customized care plan focused on your unique needs. At Peak Health Institute, we offer a wide. variety of services and modalities to empower you to be the very best version of yourself.
