Here at Jenks Health Team, we serve you best by integrating mainstream medicine with evidence-based complementary treatments.
We recognize that there is more to being healthy than masking symptoms. Using a functional medicine approach, we can help you discover the root causes and unique triggers for your health struggles.
What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. It turns the traditional disease-centered, symptom-focused model of healthcare on its ear, and instead seeks to re-establish the fundamental foundations of health that are vital for every patient.
Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and assessing the underlying causes and triggers of disease. This involves looking at the interactions among unique genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that influence long-term health.
Functional Medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what are sometimes considered “alternative” or “integrative” therapies, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, exercise, use of the latest medical research, laboratory testing, and diagnostic techniques, and prescribed combinations of medications and/or functional foods, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.
