Tired of feeling trapped?
At Outside the Box Functional Medicine, we give you the tools you need to "escape" the frustrations of today's current healthcare environment.
Functional medicine practices, like ours, address the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
"When a plant's leaves are turning brown, you don't paint the leaves green. You look at the cause of the problem.
If only we treated our bodies the same way!"
