What is a Functional Medicine Doctor?

A functional medicine doctor is a healthcare provider who approaches patient care with a focus on identifying and addressing the root causes of health problems rather than just treating the symptoms. These doctors use a systems-based approach that takes into account the interconnectedness of different bodily systems and the impact of lifestyle factors on health. They often work with patients to create personalized treatment plans that incorporate nutrition, exercise, stress management, and other lifestyle changes alongside traditional medical interventions.

The Difference Between Functional Medicine and Naturopathic Medicine

Functional Medicine Care Services in Novi Michigan | DHS Services - 7

Here at Diverse Health Services, we offer both functional medicine therapy as well as naturopathic medicine therapy. Functional medicine is a medical treatment that focuses on the optimal functioning of the body and its organs. Naturopathic medicine is a medical treatment that emphasizes prevention, treatment and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ self-healing ability. While these two sound similar, they both share more differences than commonalities.

These are both patient-centered types of treatments. Naturopathic medicine focuses on healing from within, whereas functional medicine focuses on using holistic approaches (such as vitamins, herbs and the like) to eliminate disease. Naturopathic medicine focuses on preventative measures, so there technically wouldn’t be a need to treat a disease if the body couldn’t become ill in the first place. Since we do practice both types of medicine, we will leave it up to you to decide which would work best for your lifestyle needs.

Our functional medical doctors and team value each of our patients’ strong dedication to their health. Coming to our office and beginning a journey to better yourself is a big step – so why wait? Contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
