If you’ve been dealing with health issues for a while or have only seen conventional medical doctors, you may wonder what the difference is between a practice like Today’s Integrative Health / MDPremierApothecary and a conventional doctor. At Today’s Integrative Health, our practitioners use a functional medicine approach personalized for patients.
Unlike conventional medicine, which treats symptoms, functional medicine strives to discover the root cause of the disease.
What Is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine deals with the prevention and underlying causes of disease in the body. It is used in addition to traditional medicine to help diagnose and treat various illnesses and symptoms. Some patients will seek conventional medicine for their symptoms only to be told that “their labs are normal” while they still feel terrible.
With functional medicine, the practitioner digs deep to get to the root of the problem to help get the body back into homeostasis.

What Can Functional Medicine Help With?

Those with headaches, injuries, pain, inflammation, hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, thyroid issues, fatigue, insomnia, and gastrointestinal issues may all find relief with a functional medicine approach.
If you have seen numerous doctors yet still have health issues, functional medicine may be your key to healing.
Your doctor at Today’s Integrative Health will prescribe the most natural yet effective solutions available to get you back on your feet.
How Does Functional Medicine Diagnose?
Functional medicine will use a variety of tests such as comprehensive blood tests as well as other noninvasive tests. These tests are available to help our practitioners get to the root cause of your illness. Functional medicine providers take a thorough health history and spend adequate time with their patients to identify any sources of illness, and to prevent potential problems.
The Functional Medicine Approach
We focus on what makes your body and health unique, including a thorough personal health history, lifestyle habits, social environment, individual physiology, and other factors.
With a traditional approach used by conventional medicine, you’ll spend maybe ten minutes with a doctor who will ask a few questions and then run lab work to determine your overall health.
While your family health history is important, functional medicine providers understand that you are a complex individual and that not everyone responds the same to the same treatments.
