Functional Medicine in Coral Springs, FL
Functional Medicine in Coral Springs, FL: Functional medicine provided by Dr. Maan at Maan Chiropractic and Wellness addresses the underlying causes of disease by focusing on the patient as a whole rather than only treating isolated sets of symptoms. Dr. Maan will take the time to listen to each patient in order to determine their health histories including genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that can influence long-term health & well-being.
Functional Medicine is the science and art of creating protocols to ensure that the physiological functions are operating at an optimal level. This approach ensures the physicians can have a more well-rounded picture of the individual patient as well as being able to incorporate a pathogenic approach when necessary. Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a science and body systems-oriented approach and involving both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
How is Functional Medicine Different?
Integrated Medical Practices: Functional medicine combines traditional practices with alternative and integrative medicine. This means we focus on not just treatment but prevention through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. Supplementation and stress management also play an integral part in functional medicine.
Care Centered Around the Patient: Treatments are tailored to the individual needs of the patient rather than the symptoms themselves. This allows us to gain a better knowledge of the patient’s story and history allowing us to provide the best care possible. Functional Medicine enables our clinic to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine and empowers patients to take an active role in their own health.
Functional Medicine treatment plans will usually include making some changes in the patient’s lifestyle. These changes include what to nutrition, physical activity, stress management, exposure to toxic substances and additional factors. These changes are designed to work with genetic makeup and work well in each individual patient’s environment. Although individual genes may make a patient susceptible to some disease, lifestyle changes can help target these problem areas and drastically improve the overall health of the patient.
Pharmaceutical Grade Vitamins Recommended by Dr. Maan
We utilize pharmaceutical grade vitamins in our office and feel you should get what you pay for in a supplement. Our products are 3rd party certified to ensure what it says on the label is what is in the supplement. This means the products have a high bioavailability, which essentially means you will absorb most of it. A cheap and poor supplement is not useful to your body if you only absorb 5% of it. Our products will ensure a high bioavailability. We perform individual assessments based on your health history to help provide you the the optimal vitamin program.
