Our commitment to patients is to meet their current needs with long-term solutions that ensure immediate, renewed health and future health independence.
“The human body is composed of networks. Disease does not occur in isolated regions of the body; instead it is a disturbance of a more complex, interconnected web. The future of medicine is to treat the disturbance or the mechanism (upstream cause) not the disease (downstream effect).”
What is Functional Medicine?
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, our Functional Medicine Clinic in Whitby, Markham focuses on 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.
