Functional Medicine In Collingwood
Our Naturopathic Doctors take an evidence-based approach to healthcare regularly integrating functional medicine into their treatment plans.
What is Functional Medicine?
According to the Institute for Functional Medicine, “functional medicine is a systems biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.”
Integrating functional medicine into your treatment plan is important for addressing the root cause rather than simply masking the symptoms of your disease because often the root cause can be contributing to multiple symptoms. Through addressing the root, it is possible to bring the entire body back into balance.
Which Conditions Respond Well To This Integrative Approach?
At Be Well Collingwood our Naturopathic Doctors regularly integrate personalized medicine into all of their treatment plans, however, we find this grassroots approach has been particularly helpful when offering treatments such as:
- Adrenal Fatigue / Burnout
- Anxiety & Depression
- Digestive Issues (such as GERD, SIBO, IBS, Constipation and more)
- Autoimmune Conditions
- Low Immune System Function
- Complimentary care for cancer
