The core belief behind Functional Medicine is that the human body has been designed to heal itself and all it needs is the right support through specific lifestyle changes. Functional Medicine provides a holistic approach to medicine and treating chronic diseases and conditions by fixing the problem from inside out.
At ADIO Chiropractic Clinic, we provide a Functional Medicine model of care with a patient-centered approach to various health issues and chronic disease management. We offer personalized and effective care for our patients’ needs by asking the correct question. Most models of medicine seek to answer the question, “What’s wrong?” That only provides criteria for recognized pathologies and disease. The Functional Medicine approach asks the correct essential question, “What’s not as it should be?” This allows us to compare an individual to the ideal health they are capable of achieving, not just avoidance of a state of sickness.
This requires a thorough evaluation of the patient’s medical history and asking targeted questions to gather information that will be used to identify the root cause of the problem or illness. The causes can range from stress, anxiety, allergens, toxins, poor nutrition, genetic anomalies, and the microbiome of the patient.
The foundation of Functional Medicine is based on a natural and holistic approach. The treatment usually combines lifestyle and behavioral changes, nutrition, and therapies that accelerate healing at a cellular level, such as laser therapy, as well as Lipo PBM Therapy for targeted fat burning.
We use Applied Kinesiology to diagnose and treat the body to restore normal function that has been affected due to age, stress, or other environmental factors.
