Functional Medicine in Shelby, NC at Carolina Chiropractic Plus
Dr. Begley Explains the Benefits of Functional Medicine
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease by focusing on the patient as a whole rather than only treating isolated sets of symptoms. We take the time to listen to each patient in order to determine their health histories including genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that can influence long-term health & well-being.
Functional medicine treatment plans will usually include making some changes in the patient’s lifestyle. These include changes to nutrition, physical activity, stress management, exposure to toxic substances and additional factors. These changes are designed to work with genetic makeup and work well in each individual patient’s environment. Although individual genes may make a patient susceptible to some disease, lifestyle changes can help target these problem areas and drastically improve the overall health of the patient.
How is Functional Medicine Different?
Integrated Medical Practices: Functional medicine combines traditional practices with alternative and integrative medicine. This means we focus on not just treatment but prevention through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. Supplementation and stress management also play an integral part in functional medicine.
Care Centered Around the Patient: Treatments are tailored to the individual needs of the patient rather than the symptoms themselves. This allows us to gain a better knowledge of the patient’s story and history, allowing us to provide the best care possible. Functional medicine enables our clinic to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine and empowers patients to take an active role in their own health.
Testimonials from Linda and Kent of Shelby, NC
“Since I’ve started this program, I have been amazed that my bloating is all but gone! People have commented that my skin looks better and brighter, too. I am sleeping much better, and my dancing is easier to do now because my energy is so much better. Before I started this program, I rated my energy as a 4 or 5 out of a possible 10; now, I’m easily at a 8 or 9…and we haven’t even finished up with our program yet!”
-Linda B., Shelby, NC
“So far, I’ve lost 18 pounds and people are always asking how I’m doing it. I no longer take my TUMS for acid reflux, and I no longer get woken up by the reflux. No surprise that I’m waking up earlier on my own because I guess I’m getting better quality sleep. I have to say that my joints feel much better, too, and I’ve started to exercise. “
-Kent B., Shelby, NC
