Welcome to the Holistic Wellness Center of the Carolinas – Research Based Functional Wellness


What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying causes of disease rather than just treating symptoms. This approach takes into account the complex interactions between genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors that can contribute to the development of chronic illnesses.

One of the main benefits of functional medicine is its focus on prevention. By identifying and addressing underlying risk factors for chronic diseases, functional medicine practitioners aim to prevent the development of these conditions in the first place. This can include implementing lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, stress management, and addressing nutrient deficiencies, among other things.

Another benefit of functional medicine is its personalized approach. Each patient is treated as an individual, with their own unique set of circumstances, rather than applying a one-size-fits-all approach. This allows practitioners to tailor treatments to the specific needs of each patient and to address the complex and often interconnected symptoms associated with chronic diseases. Practitioners will conduct a detailed medical history, physical examination, and laboratory tests to identify the underlying causes of the patient’s condition and to develop a personalized treatment plan. This can include a combination of conventional and complementary treatments, such as diet and lifestyle changes, supplements, and medications. By addressing the root causes of the illness, functional medicine aims to improve overall health and well-being, not just treating the symptoms.
