Functional Medicine

Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating treatment methods, not separating them. At Functional Skin Solutions, we prioritize a method of functional medicine that treats the unified system of your body.

The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that health 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:

  • Practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. We do not make or treat a medical diagnosis. We listen carefully to a patient’s history, documenting their personal choices and medicinal interactions in order to seek out the underlying or root causes of problems .
  • Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches
  • We use simple lab tests to help pinpoint where problems originate and use that information to balance the complex network of interconnected systems that make up the body
  • 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.

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 on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Dr. Thompson at Functional Skin Solutions examines problems holistically in order to deal with the root causes.

Since the founding of her practice, she has helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as fatigue, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, premature aging, digestive problems, migraines, and more. Our goal is to not only address troublesome health issues, but to replace them with vitality and glowing good health.

Whether Functional Skin Solutions is the first place you are visiting for treatment, or simply the latest one, we’ll make sure we do everything in our power to find an effective treatment.
