Medical diagnosis and treatments are traditionally focused on symptoms. Using a simple example, you have a stomachache; the doctor will prescribe a medication to relieve the pain.
Genesis Health Institute thinks differently. Keeping with the example above, we ask: why do you have a stomachache? Is there an underlying condition that is resulting in your stomach hurting?
At Genesis, we treat illness as part of the whole body, not just an isolated set of symptoms. This is called functional medicine. And it’s the next generation model in healthcare.
What does your lifestyle look like? Are you doing or eating something that is causing inflammation, which is presenting itself in the form of a stomachache?
By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of practicing medicine to a whole-body approach, functional medicine looks at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence complex chronic pain, disease, and long-term health.
