Functional Medicine Q & A

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a systems-based approach to health and wellness that focuses on understanding the root cause of a disease or dysfunction. Rather than only treating symptoms, such as chronic back pain or headaches, Dr. Jordan seeks to identify and treat the underlying causes.

Functional medicine is a patient-focused, science-based approach to health and wellness. You work together with Dr. Jordan to address and remedy the underlying cause of your lower back pain, migraines, or chronic pain, among other conditions, to treat the disease and promote optimal health long term. It’s a very individualized philosophy, and what works best for you may not work for another member of your family.

Dr. Jordan tailors your health care plan based on your individual needs so you can live your best life. Partnering with your doctor means that you both take an active role in contributing positively to your health and wellness.

What can I expect with a functional medicine approach?

You can expect to spend time talking to Dr. Jordan about your health concerns, health history, and lifestyle. She may also request blood work, X-rays, or other diagnostic tests that provide a clear picture of your current condition. You’ll also talk about your current nutritional choices, your job, and any other factors that may be contributing to your health issues.

The functional medicine approach means that Dr. Jordan treats your whole body as a system, rather than as a symptom. So, she takes into consideration all aspects of your physical health, nutritional health, and many other aspects of your life so she can recommend the most comprehensive and effective treatment plan.

Instead of focusing on the disease, Dr. Jordan works with you to restore your whole body to its optimal state, thus reducing pain and other symptoms and preventing future illness.
