As healthcare continues to evolve, the role that functional medicine plays is increasingly important. Individuals are feeling empowered to take a more active role in their own health and health coaches are a rapidly growing segment of the industry.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. It is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
