Looking for Better Health and a Richer Life? Consider Functional Medicine: A Holistic Path to Wellness!

Family Medicine Physician Nicholas J. Palermo, DO, MS, Compounding and Research Pharmacist Gene Gresh, R.PH, Naturopathic Physician Lauren Young, ND and Family Medicine Physician Kate Zachau, DO, will define what functional medicine is and explain the differences between the traditional medicine approach of treating symptoms versus functional medicine that searches for the root cause/s, is patient centered, and treats with both conventional and integrative modalities. A Functional Medicine Practitioner will consider the mind, body, spirit connection and understands the importance of a holistic approach to health that includes, but is not limited to, nutritional therapy, sleep optimization, exercise, hormone balance, gut health, reducing inflammation, healthy play, and family, community and emotional support. Finally they will provide examples of a functional medicine workup that incorporates the most current sciences as well as advances in technology and testing to measure the unique factors related to each individual’s condition.
