Functional Medicine

Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating treatment methods, not separating them. At Canfield Integrative Medical Arts we prioritize a method of functional medicine that treats the unified system of your body.
Utilizing the functional medicine approach can allow patients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope. Instead of relying solely on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Dr. Canfield at Canfield Integrative Medical Arts diagnose problems holistically in order to find long-lasting improvement and resolution.
The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.

The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:

  • Medical practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. A doctor will only make a medical diagnosis after listening carefully to a patient’s history, documenting their personal choices and medicinal interactions.
  • Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches.
  • Patients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encourage to take an active role in improving how they feel.
