Functional medicine is a holistic approach to medicine, treating the patients as a whole rather than just their symptoms. It has gained great popularity over the past few years due to its forward-thinking health model and success rate. As the evolution of humanity continues, so must our practices. That is why functional medicine was created.

What exactly is functional medicine?

Functional Medicine uses a holistic approach to address the causes of disease, rather than its symptoms. It promotes a healthy patient/practitioner relationship with engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is a great advancement in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of patients in the 21st century. Functional Medicine addresses the person as a whole, not just an isolated set of symptoms. It does this by shifting the focus of the traditional disease-centered medical practice to a more holistic patient-centered approach.

Functional Medicine physicians spend more time with their patients, attentively listening to their histories and experiences. They also look at the interrelatedness between environmental, genetic, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex diseases. Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual and looks to heal the individual of their ailments, rather than cover up their symptoms.

What does a functional medicine doctor do?

To optimize function, functional medicine practitioners incorporate modalities such as pathophysiology, biochemistry and nutrigenomics, which looks at the interaction between nutrients and an individual’s genes. With a focus on root cause rather than symptomatology, functional medicine is a very individualized and personalized approach to medicine.

Instead of looking at symptoms and prescribing medications, functional medicine doctors need to dig deeper and do a lot of investigative work. While it is still a relatively fledgling field, functional medicine is beginning to see explosive growth. There are more and more functional medicine practices opening up, with more patients realizing the potential benefits and curative powers of their practices.

Part of the attraction of functional medicine is influenced in part by the shift in medical results geared toward beneficial outcomes instead of the volume of patients treated. Another aspect of the success of functional medicine is founded in what might be considered a holistic approach to healthcare: partnering with your patient and believing in the body’s inherent ability to heal.

Is functional medicine for me?

Functional medicine is for anyone who would rather approach the body as a whole to treat a disease, rather than just the disease on its own. It is also beneficial to get to the root of what is causing a problem, than applying topical solutions such as medications and surgery.

PATIENT REVIEWS & FEEDBACK

I had my first visit with Dr.Golding last week in her beautiful Loveland office. It was amazing! I have been experiencing a lot of stress and anxiety, and just feeling “off”. Dr Golding did an intake with testing on me before we started treatment to help pinpoint where my imbalances were that needed to shift. During treatment I felt such a release! It has been almost a week since my treatment and I am still feeling the positive effects. I am looking forward to going back.
Thank you Dr Golding!…

“I have to tell you that the supplements you have prescribed have worked wonders. Every year we have to take part in the biometric screening in order to get a discount on the health insurance offered by the county. For the 5 years that I’ve participated I’ve had to have a waiver signed by my physician stating I am on a health plan that I will follow for the year in order to get the discount. Every year my ‘health age’ has been equivalent to someone in their 60s. This is the first year I am healthy enough to qualify without a waiver and my health is equivalent to a 40-year-old. You’ve done so much to help me!! I’m looking forward to working with you in the future. Thank you.”…
