Functional medicine is a cornerstone of our practice, which serves greater New York City, including Darien and the rest of Fairfield County, Connecticut. This approach to identifying and effectively addressing various ailments and medications considers myriad functional problems. For instance, depression may be rooted in thyroid problems or how the body uses insulin. Likewise, the roots of inflammation may be traced back to how the heart or brain functions, how blood is collected and pumped to the lungs and tissues, or how neurotransmitters stabilize mood.
Our clinicals at the New York Center for Integrative Medicine in Manhattan develop highly personalized treatment plans based on your unique goals. Comprehensive testing seeks to better understand the function of vital organs and systems.
Additionally, this investigative process includes taking a deep dive into the role that factors such as lifestyle, behaviors, habits, and environment play in the nature, severity, and frequency of a patient’s symptoms and conditions. Functional medicine appreciates that many factors are at work to influence how the body, for instance, absorbs and uses nutrients as fuel. So, we isolate functional issues that affect how we feel and the many factors that influence our bodily functions–including our emotions, physical wellness and robustness, and ability to get restorative sleep.
As with all services at our practice, we take a broader and more holistic view when evaluating patients and, eventually, developing and delivering therapies to target each individual’s unique needs. We are happy to give a rundown of our unique approach to the testing that informs effective functional medicine-based treatment here:
