The Functional Medicine Tree

Finding the Root Cause of Illness

Functional Medicine



Functional Medicine uses the “TREE” model to improve Health.  Signs and symptoms that affect the various organ systems are the “leaves” of the tree.  While we do address the “leaves” of the tree, we spend most of our time investigating and addressing the “roots” of the tree, such as sleep, nutrition, exercise, stress management, and toxins.  By doing this, we can help the tree heal and flourish.
