Functional & Integrative Medicine

Hattiesburg Clinic Functional & Integrative Medicine offers a unique approach to patient care by addressing the root cause of illness and allowing the patient to have a proactive role in his/her health. This form of care incorporates nutritional counseling, lifestyle modification and personalized supplementation based on the patient’s needs.

Our medical team has an appreciation for the body’s natural capacity for healing and possesses extensive training and certification in integrative and functional medicine. Our ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life for our patients.

What is Functional & Integrative Medicine?

Functional and integrative medicine is a relatively new branch of medicine that views the body as one integrated system. It attempts to identify and treat the underlying cause of disease rather than focus primarily on the management of disease symptoms.

It offers a very personalized approach to patient care in which the patient’s history is considered – from birth to the present – in an effort to examine all of the contributing factors that could have played a role in getting the patient to his/her current state of health.

Functional and integrative medicine utilizes a wide array of conventional lab testing (as needed), as well as specialized functional testing – including but not limited to – advanced nutritional profiles, hormonal testing, gut and microbiome testing, genetic testing and metabolic pathway testing.
