Its focus is on a patients daily condition, with medical care designed to prevent problems before they occur and to reach a level of health that allows for the highest quality of life and maximum lifespan. It also deals with bothersome health conditions by eliminating their root causes, rather than simply treating symptoms. The doctors at ALC, led by world renowned anti-aging physician and hormone therapy pioneer Dr. Scott Becker, are among the foremost experts in the country in functional medicine.
Functional Medicine Is Based on Patient’s Unique Physiology
During ALCs functional medical treatments, patients undergo a comprehensive set of the most advanced diagnostic testing available. Every aspect of a patients health and lifestyle is analyzed, from diet to blood samples to quality of air and water consumed. A unique medical profile is developed for each patient, and a special course of treatment is designed and customized for each patients individual physiology.
In functional medical care, every area of health is addressed, and problem areas or imbalances are identified. Treatment allows patients to achieve an optimum balance in nutrition, physical conditioning, and hormone levels. Special attention is paid to any conditions that may already exist, with steps taken to cure rather than simply treat them. In addition, functional medicine helps to prevent other health problems, as well as many of the common issues associated with aging.
Functional medicine makes use of the latest medical advances, as well as the best of Eastern, Western, and alternative medicine. The end result is that patients reach a harmonious physical and mental balance, and achieve their ideal state of health. With functional medicine, its now possible to be in great condition and perfect health, irrespective of age.
