Factors to Consider for Your Functional Medicine Treatment

Many people are under the assumption that they have to "go under the knife" or take powerful prescription medications to treat their condition. In many cases, there are simpler ways to receive treatment for a range of conditions. Functional medicine treatment is an effective way to help people get to the root of their condition without resorting to prescription medication or invasive surgery. At Jacksonville Health & Wellness Center, our experienced functional medicine practitioner has years of experience providing Jacksonville residents with functional medicine treatment. Here is a look at five factors to consider for your functional medicine treatment.

Root Conditions

Many health conditions are caused by an underlying disorder known as a "root condition." For instance, someone may be obese because they have lower back pain which reduces their mobility and causes them to be less physically active. By treating this patient’s lower back pain, the patient may become more active which can treat the obesity issue. By investigating the root cause of a condition, a person can receive targeted treatment that is likely to lead to more effective outcomes.

Genetic Makeup

A person's condition can be "in their genes." Therefore, a patient needs to know their genetic makeup to see if they are likely to develop a certain condition. This will allow a functional medicine specialist to address a condition before it can develop into a major health issue. For instance, a person who is predisposed to arthritis will benefit from preemptive chiropractic care.

Environmental Inputs

The environment that you live in plays an important role in your health. For instance, if your job involves repetitive movements, then you could be prone to repetitive workplace injury. A functional medicine practitioner will use your environmental inputs to help discover the root cause of your condition and find the right treatment.

Mind-Body Elements

Mind-body medicine considers emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and behavioral factors to help in the treatment of your condition. For example, if you have pain in your upper back, it could be due to stress at your job and your home. Therefore, a functional medicine specialist may not only perform massage therapy to reduce the tension in your back, but he may also recommend stress relief exercises that will help align your mind and your body in a way to help alleviate your condition.
