Acute Functional Medicine

Everyday ailments can be frustrating and persistent, but The Epigenetics Healing Center will help to design a custom care plan to get you back on your feet.

What is Acute Functional Medicine?

Acute functional medicine follows a holistic approach to address common ailments via alternative medicine methods in order to gain optimal body function. This method of treatment is more focused on your core body function, rather than addressing symptoms as they arise. A large portion of functional medicine is reviewing what is going into your body, from toxins and supplements to diet and exercise. Having a focused approach on overall well being translates to a well-rounded treatment plan and a passion for patient success.

What Conditions Can Acute Functional Medicine Treat?

Typical functional medicine can be very beneficial for chronic conditions like Autoimmune Disorders, Diabetes, Arthritis and more, but a holistic approach is also proven to be successful with everyday ailments as well.
