Heal Your Body as a Whole with Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine at Dr. Briones Medical Weight Loss Center of Mt. Kisco

Your body is not a set of isolated systems that allow you to live. Your health depends on all your functions working in harmony to support bones, muscles, blood, and more. When one of these systems breaks down or weakens, other seemingly unrelated systems can suffer. That is where Dr. Briones Medical Weight Loss Center can be there for you. We are functional medicine specialists who see your body as one working system. Our practice has the unique ability to heal you as a whole by mapping and examining all your collaborative systems, diagnosing underlying causes, and developing a systems-oriented treatment plan to give you optimal health. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and receive the functional medical care you deserve.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine views your body as a complex, integrated system. That system does not always present health issues quickly and requires a more systems-oriented approach to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Whether an illness is attacking the gastrointestinal system, endocrine system, or immune system, there could be underlying causes that stem from other areas of the body. Functional medicine at Dr. Briones Medical Weight Loss Center seeks to identify and address those root causes and heal the body as a whole. Our practice takes the time to listen to you, study your medical history, and search for genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that could be influencing your long-term health and chronic diseases. With this information, we can better treat your condition’s root causes, stop its progress, and often reverse the effects to optimize your health. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and get started.

What Conditions Does Functional Medicine Treat?

Functional medicine addresses the healthcare needs of 21st-century patients. It doesn’t just treat the symptoms of a chronic condition; it treats the system itself, using a more engaging partnership between patient and physician. Functional medicine examines the many organs and systems of the body in a larger context. Through this method, our functional medicine practitioners can find a more complete solution, take your treatment a step further, and focus on prevention as well. 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:

  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Aging
  • Allergy & Food Sensitivity
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Chronic Asthma
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Diabetes
  • Eating Disorders
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders
  • High Cholesterol
  • Infertility
  • Menopause
  • Weight Gain
  • And more

Why Do We Need Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine can be essential for patient healing in various ways. Functional medicine provides a deeper understanding of someone’s unique biochemical makeup, offers an improved patient-centric approach to treatment, and focuses on enhancing the quality of life and not the length. At Dr. Briones Medical Weight Loss Center, our functional medical practitioners see the application of this specialty medicine as a therapeutic partnership in which they can help you heal in a fuller, more holistic sense. In addition to a patient focus, functional medicine offers other advantages as well, including:

  • Chronic Disease Treatment: Chronic diseases involve several bodily systems. Functional medicine can help make connections between all those systems, determine underlying causes, and develop effective treatment options to heal you more fully – even when conditions seem unrelated.
  • Environmental Diagnosis: One of the best benefits of functional medicine is the examination of the environment all around you. Conventional medicine does not generally consider these factors. Functional medicine explores the places, people, and things you surround yourself with and investigates their impact on your health.

How is Functional Medicine Different from Conventional Medicine?

Conventional medicine examines the body as separate entities. Conventional physicians examine the affliction happening in a certain region of the body but often miss the bigger picture. The body is inherently more complex than that. There are millions of synergistic and antagonistic relationships occurring in your body around-the-clock. 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 in determining the best course of patient care.
