Westchestser County Functional Medicine
What is Functional Medicine?
At Dr. Briones Medical Weight Loss Center, we want to help promote overall health with functional medicine. Functional medicine is devoted to discovering the underlying causes of chronic medical conditions and helps you stay at your best.
Viewing your body as an integrated system, functional medicine uses a systems-oriented approach to a patient-centered care. We look at your body as a whole system, such as gastrointestinal, endocrine, and immune systems, and look at ways to help keeping those systems running optimally.
Medical Conditions Treated with Functional Medicine
With the use of functional medicine at our weight loss clinic, we can treat a wide variety of medical conditions. Some of these conditions include:
How is Functional Medicine Different from Conventional Medicine?
Unlike conventional medicine, functional medicine addresses the patient as a whole – not as an isolated set of systems and symptoms. Functional medicine looks at both external (environmental) and internal (lifestyle) factors to determine the best course of patient care.
