What Is Functional Health?
The main focus of Functional Health is to utilize an organized approach to assess the nine major systems of the body (immune, nervous, endocrine, gastrointestinal, etc) and treat the underlying causes of the many chronic diseases that our patients suffer from. This can include tests from saliva, blood, stool, DNA, etc. to determine which areas of the body are not functioning properly. An individual treatment program is then created to restore health and function to these areas. Dr. Mulvaney understands how crucial communication is between patient and practitioner. He builds a deep relationship with each patient because functional health is patient focused, not disease focused.
Treating The Source To Cure The Pain
Dr. Mulvaney’s Functional Integrative health treatment isn’t focused on treating a patient’s pain. Lets say a patient has rheumatoid arthritis. Our treatment is focused on assessing the major systems of the body for any imbalances and weaknesses in the patient’s physiology and biochemistry to try and understand why the patient has rheumatoid arthritis. By correcting the underlying cause of the patient’s chronic disease, this treatment will help the patient return to the health and wellness that reduces or eliminates the disease’s symptoms.
How To Know If Functional Integrative Health Can Help You
The typical individuals benefitting from this type of treatment are ones who have been suffering from years of pain and frustration because they have been told that everything looks normal during "standard" exams and nothing appears wrong. Primary doctors running these "standard" exams tell these individuals that there is no cure and the reason for their symptoms are unknown.
Dr. Mulvaney will help determine the underlying issue that may be causing a patient’s symptoms. When treating the underlying issue, it helps the patient achieve a life with reduced or eliminated symptoms.
