Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a patient-centered approach based on the understanding that each individual has not only a unique personality and individual emotional responses, but also unique metabolic patterns that affect health needs.

Functional Medicine practitioners use advanced diagnostic assessments to evaluate individual physiology, and to monitor the result of therapies. These tools can help identify disequilibrium and potential issues long before health problems arise.

At Sojourns we use Functional Medicine tools and principles to address a wide range of conditions:

  • hormonal imbalances
  • inflammatory imbalances
  • central nervous system disordres
  • cardiovascular conditions
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • auto-immune diseases
  • fibromyalgia
  • fatigue of unknown origin
  • digestive complaints.
  • arthritis,
  • fibromyalgia
  • diabetes
  • heart diseases
  • osteoporosis
  • musculoskeletal issues
  • chronic degenerative illness

Functional Medicine practitioners are dedicated to creating optimal wellness for patients through disease prevention and through the management of complex, chronic conditions. It combines research and practice from a wide range of fields, including endocrinology, environmental toxicology, genetics, gastroenterology, herbal medicine, immunology, nutrition, natural medicine and psychology.

Unlike Allopathic Medicine which focuses on reducing symptoms, Functional Medicine practitioners focus on:

  • understanding the underlying causes of poor health including metabolic patterns, toxic load, and deficiencies
  • correcting imbalances through changes in lifestyle, environment and nutrition with the goal of improved functionality and health on all levels

Functional Medicine is a foundational approach at Sojourns. Our medical team and our chiropractors use it in practice.
