Chronic Disease Management Atlanta
Functional Medicine is a viable, effective method for the prevention, treatment and even reversal of chronic disease and complex illnesses. Functional Medicine Practitioners employ an integrative approach to discover and treat the underlying causes of disease. Science-based, Functional Medicine utilizes the laboratory testing of modern mainstream medicine as well as a careful assessment of the patient’s history, including environmental and genetic factors which may contribute to the patient’s condition.
With chronic disease often comes chronic pain. Using holistic medicine and integrative therapies, we are able to help patients manage their pain naturally with limited use of pain medicine. Our pain management services often include a variety of therapies and may include dietary changes, Mind-Body medicine, or acupuncture to help restore physical, mental and spiritual balance.
At Atlanta Functional Medicine, we take a patient-centered approach. The patient’s participation is an integral part of our discovery and healing process. What makes us different is the amount of time we spend with each patient, getting to know his or her background and the health of the mind, body and spirit.
Rather than treating a set of symptoms, the Functional Medicine practitioner seeks to discover the source of the imbalance which has led to the illness. Our physicians understand that an imbalance can affect multiple systems within the body and mind, and treat the patient from a holistic perspective.
