Why see a Functional Medicine Doctor?
ALCHEMĒ offers cutting edge integrative medical appointments with our expert physicians, treating a wide variety of conditions. At ALCHEMĒ, we combine the best of both conventional and natural medicines, always working to uncover the root cause of the problem, not simply suppressing symptoms. Unlike conventional Western medicine which focuses on disease, integrative medicine focuses on all the aspects of a patient's life—physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and environmental—that contribute to a patient's health and well-being. Our appointments are significantly longer than average so we really get to know our patients, including their preferences and values. We then combine physical exam with advanced laboratory testing, including genetic testing, to devise a treatment plan that addresses your individual blueprint.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, allowing the practitioner and patient to get to the root cause. Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated series of symptoms, and takes a patient-centered approach based on your specific bioindividuality.
Principles of Functional Medicine:
- Bioindividuality, each patient is treated as a unique individual. This personalized approach allows us to treat the individual, not just the disease.
- Science-Based, Functional Medicine is vastly based on science and always evolving based on the latest research.
- Respecting your bodies ability to heal and self regulate, we provide it with the necessary tools to properly balance itself.
