Functional Medicine Q&A

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a holistic approach that focuses on identifying the root cause of disease, so it can be addressed. Your body can heal if the causes of chronic inflammation and other imbalances are identified and reduced or eliminated.

Stillpoint Wellbeing Center is a patient-centered practice that focuses on discovering the underlying cause of your issue. Since functional medicine is highly customized, Dr. Tobin combines the best options from conventional and alternative medicine to treat your condition.

By investigating your specific situation, the team’s top priority is to work with you to improve your health so you can enjoy your life.

What symptoms does functional medicine treat?

Functional medicine is an integrative approach to healing that treats many symptoms. They include:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Brain fog

Functional medicine looks for the root cause involved in any loss of function to explain your present symptoms.

At Stillpoint Wellbeing Center, Dr. Tobin uses genetic testing to examine the underlying cause of disease and then creates a personalized treatment plan for you.

Why does functional medicine work?

Functional medicine helps heal the human body based on five basic principles:

  1. Functional medicine treats the individual, not the disease, since every person is genetically and biochemically unique, supporting the normal healing mechanisms of the body.
  2. Science shows that understanding a person’s network of relationships can help you see into the functioning of the body.
  3. Your body is intelligent and has the capacity to self-regulate, which expresses itself through a dynamic balance of all your body systems.
  4. Your body can heal itself and prevent nearly all the diseases of aging.
  5. Health is more than the absence of disease. It’s a state of immense vitality.

Your body can heal if the causes of chronic inflammatory disease and other imbalances are identified and reduced or eliminated.
