Here at Leigh Ann Scott, MD, our providers know that functional medicine is the future of healthcare. That’s why we were delighted to see a recent Bloomberg article on the incredible growth of Forum Health, a network of functional medicine clinics of which we are a part.
As the CEO of Forum Health said in the article: “An office visit once a year and a growing list of prescriptions isn’t healthcare, it’s sick care.” We couldn’t agree more. Through our functional medicine approach, we listen carefully as you discuss your symptoms, experiences, and feelings. This communication, coupled with specific lab testing, helps us to determine the root cause of why you’re feeling a certain way.
It’s all about taking a proactive approach to your health and wellness. Instead of diagnosing symptoms and providing a predetermined treatment for that diagnosis, we look deeper. We know that your symptoms aren’t necessarily the same thing as your diagnosis. In locating the root cause of your symptoms, we can provide the right protocol, tailored to you and you alone.
4 Reasons Functional Medicine is the Future of Healthcare
More and more doctors are adopting this model of patient care. And the more functional medicine practitioners we have, the more you, your children, and their children will benefit. Here’s why we feel functional medicine is the future of healthcare:
1. This is personalized medicine.
Instead of the “one-size-fits-all” approach of traditional medicine, functional medicine uses advanced testing combined with listening to your story. This helps us create a plan tailored to your body, your health, and your lifestyle.
2. It focuses on health, not just the absence of disease.
Conventional medicine focuses on diagnosing symptoms and treating sickness and disease. But functional medicine treats the person, not the disease, and deals with the core systems of the body. It’s about improving your health and the quality of your life today and into the future, rather than making you less sick.
3. It improves your quality of life.
By discovering the root cause of symptoms that make you feel bad and eliminating them, functional medicine helps you achieve greater energy, more mental clarity, and better immunity. And when you feel better, you can create a better life.
4. It teaches you how to thrive.
A key element of functional medicine is giving you the tools to remain healthy and vibrant. Once you know what works to keep your body and mind running at an optimal level, you’ll be able to continue to provide it to yourself.
So, you can see why a functional medicine approach is the future of healthcare: It’s how to ensure you, your family, your friends, and your community remain healthy and happy throughout your lives.
