It is an evolution in the practice of medicine in hopes of better addressing the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional health addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
At Colorado Medical Solutions, we address the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engages both patient and physician in a therapeutic partnership. Practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, the functional approach supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
The focus is on patient-oriented care, promoting health as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease. By listening to the patient and learning his or her story, the practitioner brings the patient into the discovery process and tailors treatments that address the individual’s unique needs.
