Dr. Justin practices a new model of medicine, sometimes referred to as “functional” or “systems” medicine. Functional medicine is neither conventional nor alternative medicine. It’s a combination of the best elements of both, and it represents the future of medicine. That’s why I call it “medicine for the 21st century.”
Functional Medicine Is…
Investigative: It treats symptoms by addressing underlying cause of the problem, which leads to more profound and longer lasting results.Holistic: Treats the body as an interconnected whole, and recognizes the importance of these connections in health and disease.
Safe: Treatments have mild or no side effects, and other unrelated complaints often improve spontaneously.
Patient-centered: Treats the patient, not the disease. Treatments are highly individualized based on patient needs.
Participatory: Patient is respected, empowered, educated and encouraged to play active role in healing process.
Integrative: Combines the best of both modern and traditional medicines and emphasizes importance of diet and lifestyle.
Restorative: Tests and treatments designed to promote optimal function, prevent and reverse disease, and improve quality of life.
Preventative: Guided by the ancient Chinese saying, “The superb physician treats disease before it occurs.”
Evidence-based: Based on the latest research from peer-reviewed medical journals, and uncorrupted by corporate and political interests.
