Customized Treatment Programs to Treat the Root Cause of Chronic Illnesses
Many treatments these days focus more on the disease and less on the patient. But a newer, more holistic approach for dealing with chronic diseases known as functional medicine takes on a patient-centric approach and asks the question, “Why is the patient ill?” and then treats it accordingly.
Let Dr. Kareem and her team of qualified professionals at ZenLife MD provide treatment that offers a functional approach to health and wellness. Functional medicine offers a personalized and integrative approach to your healthcare, which means understanding and breaking down your condition to provide careful prevention, management, and treatment of the root cause.
For a comprehensive and effective approach to modern healthcare with a well-rounded model based on several types of treatment, book a consultation with us today.
Functional Medicine: Living with Your Chronic Illnesses
Functional medicine is a relatively new approach to complex chronic diseases. Rather than trying to examine the disease, your doctor will get a full picture of how your body works based on factors like your diet, genetic conditions, medications, lifestyles, and more. From there, they can track down one or more root causes of your illness and have these causes treated accordingly.
Functional management is one approach towards chronic disease management. Your condition may be chronic because of triggers like nutrition, stress, toxins, microbiomes, or many other factors that can be treated or avoided. Once our doctor determines a possible treatment, we can create a custom treatment plan to help you avoid these triggers that can trigger chronic illness.
Our Science-Based Process for Functional Medicine
Current research shows that a number of factors in regular lifestyles can contribute to certain health risks. These factors are modifiable, which means that they can be adjusted to prevent their effects on your health. The health community is learning that when our biological systems are out of balance and we lack certain nutrients, chemicals, or hormones, our body will show signs of resulting diseases and illnesses.
At ZenLife MD, we can track down the causes and find appropriate treatment for them. Our customized functional medicine programs use a combination of practices from integrative, holistic, conventional, and naturopathic medicine models. As a result, we can provide you with a comprehensive, effective, and science-based healthcare plan that can treat the root problem that’s triggering your condition.
Is Functional Medicine for Me?
Anyone with chronic conditions can benefit from functional medicine. Some conditions that are commonly treated with this include:
- Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
- Autoimmune conditions
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Digestive disorders
- Food allergies
- Hormonal conditions
- Thyroid disorders
- Women’s health disorders
Functional medicine is a holistic approach to treating chronic conditions. If you have an open mind and are willing to give an alternative approach to health and wellbeing a shot, you can schedule an appointment to discuss your functional medicine treatment plan. It’s important to note that those who seek functional medicine are those who:
- Are open to alternative treatments. You recognize that prescription drugs and modern medicine have their benefits, but so do alternative treatments like acupuncture and herbal remedies.
- Have a chronic illness. Rather than treating the symptoms of your condition, functional medicine specialists treat the cause.
- Want a personalized experience. What other patients experience may not necessarily be the same as yours. We use different methods based on the information we receive from our comprehensive consultations.
