Integrative Family Medicine uses a combination of modern healthcare practices to diagnose and treat a patient. Treatments may include such modalities as acupuncture, yoga, or massage. This medical practice also focuses on the nutritional and exercise habits of the patient to curb factors related to obesity and diabetes. Integrative Family Medicine physicians believe poor lifestyle choices are the root cause of many modern chronic diseases.
While integrative medicine and functional medicine have similarities, there is one important distinction. Both practices focus on supporting the patient as a whole person; however, functional medicine strives to determine the root cause of disease, particularly chronic diseases such as autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as, diabetes and obesity. Rather than simply making a diagnosis and then determining which drugs or surgery will best treat the condition, Functional Medicine practitioners dive deep into the patient’s history and biochemistry and ask why this patient is ill. Functional medicine is highly personalized and often includes a detailed analysis of an individual’s genetic makeup.
Healthcare is undergoing drastic changes. Functional and Integrative Medicine paradigms will be at the forefront of healthcare in the 21st century. If you would like more information on either integrative medicine or functional medicine, contact the professionals at Suburban Wellness Group.

Integrative medicine is different from conventional medicine primarily because it focuses on health as opposed to disease. We continue to peel away the layers to identify the source of that illness, which is almost always at the cellular level.
By restoring health instead of merely eliminating illness, we give the body what it needs not only to eliminate the reported illness but also to eliminate other underlying illnesses that may not be showing symptoms and to prevent the onset of future illness.
