About care at Foundations
Foundations uses functional medicine to provide personalized care and treat chronic conditions. Foundations offers prevention, optimization of wellness, and a pathway to healing. Much of current medicine treats each body organ separately, however functional medicine uses a systems-based scientific approach for assessment and treatment. This approach better reflects the connected-ness of our body organs.
Functional medicine also better accounts for how the world around you affects the world inside you. It can be used to evaluate the interaction between our genes, our micro-biome (internal bacteria), nutrition, environment, and lifestyle, all of which affect if, or how, a person's body will develop a chronic condition. When the underlying cause of a condition is identified, imbalances can be corrected, wellness can be boosted, and symptoms can resolve.
Welcome to medicine that addresses the root cause, so that you can be well again!
