Functional Medicine Lynchburg VA

Functional medicine is a combination of conventional medicine and alternative and complementary therapies. With the ultimate goal of helping the patient heal, functional medicine draws from Western, Eastern, alternative, preventative and integrative medical practices.

At the core, functional medicine is the health-focused, patient-centered partnership in which doctor and patient work together to discover the cause of illness and disease.
