MindSpa’s functional medicine program focuses on addressing the root cause of disease and symptomology using a primarily holistic approach. This can include nutritional, herbals, vitamins, IV therapy and other modalities as treatments. By being integrative, one can incorporate both Eastern and Western medical practices into all treatments, whether preventive, diagnostic and/or therapeutic.
In functional medicine, the practitioner looks “upstream” to consider the complexity of the entirety of interactions in a patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, spirit) and external factors (physical and social environment) that affect total functioning.
