Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease through a systems-oriented approach that engages both the practitioner and clinic member in a therapeutic partnership. It shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of conventional medicine to a more patient-centered approach. This addresses people as a whole, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Dr. Boyle D.A.C.M., LAc., DiplOM. studies the complex interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that influences a person’s long-term health. As a result, his approach to each clinic member is highly unique and specific to that individual’s needs and goals.
