functional medicine

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a system-oriented approach and engaging both patient and preactitioner in a therapeutic partnership, by shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medicine practice to a more patient centered approach. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

At Proactive Healthcare we know that many people are looking for alternative to the medication that they are taking for their chronic conditions. We want to work out a personally designed, easy to follow, nutritional guideline that will get you on your way to good health and work with your primary care physician to see how your health improves.

The human body has the incredible ability to heal itself if proper nutrition is part of your lifestyle. Common stresses can increase the load on the body and therefore increase the demand for essential nutrients needed for optimal function.
Here are some of the factors that can bring about a nutritional deficiency:

• regular alcohol use
• regular coffee use
• use of drugs
• use of contraception
• infection or illness
• exposure to air and water pollution
• Cigarette smoke
• chronic dieting
• surgery
• injuries or wounds
• exposure to pesticides
• poor digestion
• pregnancy
• increased emotional stress
• increased occupational stress

What is a nutritional deficiency? It is simply the lack or scarcity of a certain nutrient that the body needs to operate correctly. When a nutritional deficiency is present the body is more prone to illness and disease.
For example the following chronic diseases may be caused by nutritional deficiencies:

• coronary artery disease
• obesity
• diabetes
• hypertension
• cancer
• stroke

What our team of doctors and nutritional staff does is find the exact nutritional deficiencies you have and provide you with a simple plan to compensate for them.

Good nutrition can positively affect your health and help reduce the risk of disease.

We also have a dietitian on staff and provide weight consultations and treatment.
