Functional Medicine Approach
There is a distinct difference between Conventional and Functional Medicine Approach when it comes to Type 2 Diabetes. One functional medicine doctor states it this way „ Functional Medicine Practitioners do not treat disease, we treat your body‘s ecosystem. We get rid of the bad stuff, put in the good stuff, and because your body is an intelligent system, it does the rest.“ Mark Hyman, MD, director of the Center of Functional Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. Unfortunately, many people take prescription drugs without fully understanding their true risks and side effects. A drug may help the symptoms of one disease, but it can also cause a whole host of other problems, and it‘s doing nothing to fix the cause of Type 2 Diabetes itself. It‘s no wonder that Americans take so many prescription medications, yet we are not any healthier for it. A Functional Medicine approach is not a quick fix. It takes a commitment on the part of the client. But in the end, its goal is to fix the real problems that are causing Type 2 Diabetes, that will make you healthier and improve your quality of life.
