Functional Medicine is the medical practice or treatments that focus on the optimal functioning of the body and its organs. It is the future of conventional medicine - but available now through Bliss Medicine. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms. "You don't have to have a disease to benefit from functional medicine." Here lies the clear distinction and definition of Functional Medicine. Instead of asking, “What drug matches up with this disease?” Functional Medicine asks the vital questions that very few conventional doctors ask: “Why do you have this problem in the first place?” and “Why has function been lost?” and “What can we do to restore function?” Food sensitivities, vitamin deficiencies, toxins, hormone imbalances, any many other causes can all interrupt your overall well-being. When you work with Dr. Anand Thakkar and his team, you'll have investigative and experienced partners who will help you get to the root of your symptoms. Through his functional health and wellness approach, learn why you're tired or exhausted, why your stomach doesn't feel right, you can't lose weight, and your labs all "normal" but you still don't feel your best. We can help.
