Identify The Root Cause
Restore Your Health
What Is Functional Medicine
The human body is designed to adapt and overcome most adversities it encounters. The presense of chronic disease or health problems, is a sign that the body is not able to function as it’s been designed to. As a consequence of multiple systems failing, different symtpoms develop over time. Too often, what’s treated in todays world are these symptoms instead of their underlying causes. That is not the case with Functional Medicine.
The Car Analogy
Very often we use the car’s battery, starter and alternator analogy.
To keep it simple, the battery supplies the energy, the starter nudges the enegine to start, and the alternator recharges the battery while the car is running so it has enough energy to start the car next time.
When the car won’t start, we automatically assume the battery is dead, so we change it. At times, it might actually work just fine, but the started is what’s not nudging the engine to start.
So we end up changing both, the battery and the starter.
A few days later that the car does the same thing.
At this point, we find out that the alternator was actually at fault. Because it wasn’t charging the battery while the car was running, so the battery didn’t have enough energy for the starter to nudge the engine next time you turned off the engine.
If you only had a specialist that was able to diagnose the problem from the beginning.
It would save you time, money, and hassle.
Functional Medicine addresses the internal mechanisms of the body as an entire system. A problem in one system can cause other systems to malfunction. As Functional Medicine Providers, we work to identify these underlying root causes. Then a clear and specific treatment is designed to regain your health back.
At PEAKiropractic, we utilize the laters diagnostic testing, laboratory-tested supplementation, and the most effective way to natural treament. Simply put, we’re the specialist that could save you time, money and hassle.
What Can Functional Medicine Help With?
Functional medicine is not a cookie cutter aproach to health with rigid treatment protocols.
Although functional medicine treats the body as a whole, some of the most profound improvements are seen with conditions such as adrenal fatigue, arthritis, fibromyalgia, hormone imbalances, gut health and autoimmunities.
And that’s not the end of it. If you’ve been trying to lose weight, improve and optimize your athletic performance, address specific health issues, or just feel better overall, functional medicine is here to help.
For people that are just looking to just loose weight naturally, we offer other solutions that will improve your overall health while achieving your ideal weight.
Should You Combine Functional Medicine With Chiropractic?
We get this qeustion very often.
An easy way of explaining it is that chiropractic care and massage therapy are the treatments that promote healing of the structural components of the body. Functional Medicine on the other hand, is focused on the chemical components and interactions that take place during metabolism inside the body.
For optimum health, you should actually be utilizing both types of services, which is why we offer them! Contact us to get started.
