Doctors Explain The Science
It’s here, El Paso!
The new order of Holistic Medicine and its approach to the assessment and treatment of chronic disease. Its name… Functional Medicine. Today, this Functional Medicine clinical approach of healthcare is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based method that enables practitioners and patients to work together to deal with the underlying causes of illness and promote optimal health. It takes a comprehensive comprehension of each individual’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle variables and leverages that information to lead personalized treatment programs that enhance patient outcomes. By working towards the root cause, instead of symptoms, practitioners become more oriented to identifying the sophistication of illness. They may find one condition has many distinct causes, and one cause may lead to many distinct ailments. Because of this, Functional Medication treatment targets the particular manifestations of illness in each person. It is the new modern way of treating chronic diseases taking hold in many doctors’ offices in our very own El Paso.
Why do we need Functional Medicine?
Our society is currently experiencing a sharp gain in the percent of individuals who suffer from complicated, chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, mental disease, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. El Paso, with its multicultural population, is no exception. Today, the system of medicine practiced by the majority of doctors is oriented toward acute care, the identification and treatment of trauma or illness that’s of short duration and needing urgent care, including appendicitis or a broken leg. Physicians apply specific, prescribed remedies such as drugs or surgery that aim to treat the immediate symptom or problem. Regrettably, the acute-care method of medicine lacks the correct methodology and tools for preventing and treating complex, chronic disease. Typically, it does not take into account the distinctive genetic makeup of each individual or variables like environmental exposures to toxins as well as the aspects of today’s lifestyle that have an immediate influence on the rise in chronic disease in contemporary Western culture. There is a massive gap between research and the way physicians practice. The gap between emerging study in basic sciences and integration into clinical practice is tremendous –as long as 50 years–particularly in the area of complex, chronic illness. Most physicians aren’t adequately trained to assess the underlying causes of complex, chronic disease and to employ strategies such as nutrition, diet, and exercise to treat and prevent these disorders in their patients.

The Why of Functional Medicine
How is Functional Medicine Distinct?
Functional medication entails understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment for complex, chronic disease. Hallmarks of a functional medicine approach include Patient-centered care. The focus of operational medicine is on patient-centered maintenance, promoting health as positive energy, past just the absence of disease. By listening to the patient and studying their story, the practitioner brings the individual into the discovery process and tailors remedies that address the individual’s unique needs. Functional medicine professionals look”upstream” to think about the complex web of interactions in the individual’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can result in disease. The distinctive genetic makeup of every patient is considered, along with both internal (brain, body, and soul ) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect overall operation. Integrating best health clinics. Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices together with what is sometimes regarded as”alternative” or”integrative” medicine, developing a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of medication and/or botanical medications, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management practices.

For our biology, this FLC syndrome is incredibly abnormal. So, why do most people suffer from it? We suffer because we concentrate on the symptoms, not the system. We concentrate on the organ, not the organism… Catch our drift?

It approaches the root causes of illness and fully bio hacks our bodies to attain the summit, optimum health.
