Functional Medicine

Get to the root cause of medical problems


What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine gets to the root of the problem in underlying causes of disease or illness.

Dr. Walraven and her team use a systems-oriented approach engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Dr. Walraven and her team spend time with their patients, listen to their histories and look at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
