What is Functional Medicine and How Can It Help You?

At Cadenza Med Clinic, we believe in a comprehensive approach to healthcare that goes beyond just treating symptoms. That's where Functional Medicine comes in. It's a personalized, patient-centered approach that focuses on identifying the root causes of your health concerns, allowing us to create a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.


Traditional vs. Functional Medicine

Traditional medicine often takes a reactive approach, diagnosing conditions based on symptoms and prescribing medications to manage them. Functional medicine, on the other hand, is proactive. We take a deeper dive into your individual story, considering your:

  • Comprehensive Medical History: This includes past illnesses, surgeries, and family history.

  • Lifestyle Habits: We explore your diet, sleep patterns, exercise routine, and stress levels.

  • Environmental Factors: We consider potential exposures to toxins, allergens, and pollutants.

  • Genetic Predispositions: Certain genes can increase your risk for specific conditions.


By taking a holistic view, we can identify underlying imbalances that may be contributing to your symptoms. These imbalances could be related to:

  • Gut health: A disrupted microbiome can lead to inflammation and various health problems.

  • Nutritional deficiencies: Lack of essential vitamins and minerals can impact your energy levels and overall well-being.

  • Hormonal imbalances: Fluctuations in hormones can affect mood, sleep, and metabolism.

  • Hidden food sensitivities: You may have undetected intolerances that trigger chronic issues.


How Can Functional Medicine Help You at Cadenza Med Clinic?

At Cadenza Med Clinic, our functional medicine practitioners utilize a variety of tools to uncover the root causes of your health concerns. These may include:

  • Functional Lab Testing: This goes beyond standard blood tests, providing deeper insights into your body's internal workings.

  • Dietary Analysis: We help you identify and address potential food sensitivities and create a personalized nutrition plan for optimal health.

  • Lifestyle Coaching: We offer guidance on stress management, sleep hygiene, and exercise to optimize your overall well-being.

  • Supplements: We may recommend targeted supplements to address identified deficiencies.


Functional medicine is a powerful tool for managing a wide range of health concerns, including:

  • Digestive issues: IBS, bloating, constipation, and heartburn

  • Chronic pain: Headaches, fibromyalgia, and joint pain

  • Fatigue and low energy

  • Hormonal imbalances (e.g., PCOS, thyroid issues)

  • Autoimmune conditions
