      What Exactly is Functional Medicine & Why Is It So Important?

      As explained by the Institute for Functional Medicine:

      Functional Medicine addresses"Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual."

      So Functional Medicine is personalized, customized medicine, based on a person's unique set of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors. All of these factors are looked at and taken into consideration, as well as looking at in-depth labs to elicit a comprehensive picture of what the underlying cause, or "root" problem is that caused the disease or symptom. We then come up with your personalized plan to help get you feeling better and on the path to optimal wellness.

      Chronic Illnesses such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or Diabetes 2 for example, are currently not treated very effectively in Traditional Medicine; pharmaceutical medications are the primary solution. While they are necessary at times, treating the root cause of the chronic illness such as lifestyle factors, diet, stress, hormone balancing and fitness can many times lead to a reversal of chronic illness, and weaning off of pharmaceutical mediations.

      Functional Medicine is also very useful for applying to Preventive health. We offer specialized preventive and genetic testing, most of which is covered in whole or in part by insurance. The information is used to help you with your customized plan to not only help avoid chronic illnesses, but keep you vital, energized, and healthy, now and for the rest of your life.

      Regenerative and Anti-Aging Medicine is along the continuum of functional medicine, referring to natural nutraceuticals, procedures, and therapies to help turn back the hands of time, and extend vitality and wellness.

      At Avanti Hormones and Functional Medicine, we offer several Regenerative Therapies, such as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Hormone Pellet Therapy, and Stem Cell Joint Injections, as well as vitamin and amino acid injections, and customized nutraceutical recommendations.

      Functional and Regenerative Medicine is cutting-edge medicine, it is the future of medicine, available today.
