Functional Medicine is an inquisitive and intelligent analysis that seeks to answer the question “Why?” Why am I not feeling well? Why have I developed these problems?
It is superficial to treat an ailment with a medication that just soothes symptoms. The more thorough evaluation searches for the root cause of those symptoms to resolve them and the health problems they represent, rather than just cover them up. Analyzing the state of healthcare a past president of the AMA posed a question. He asked if you sat on a tack should we give you pain medication or should we remove the tack.
You can call this process Analytical Medicine, or Precision Medicine, or Functional Medicine. Or just call it as it is - Great Medicine!
