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 microbiome testing, genetic testing and metabolic pathway testing.
We offer services for those wanting to optimize their health, as well as treatment for a wide variety of chronic issues.
At Functional & Integrative Medicine, the patient becomes a partner. As a patient, you work with your physician, allowing you to be in charge of improving your own health and changing the outcome of disease.
We are pleased to offer phone consultations and/or telemedicine visits for patients that cannot make it in to the office. This is available to patients in the state of Mississippi. We require that initial consultations be in person.
