The reversal of chronic diseases is achievable with today’s alternative medicine choices. Functional medicine is a modern alternative choice for patients who have one or more health issues. The concept of using functional medicine involves treating the root problem in order to understand why the patient is experiencing health issues in the first place. This modern-day concept is proving to be more beneficial in comparison to the traditional medicine options that focus on treating the health issue at hand.
Chronic disease reversal
The fact that chronic disease reversal is now a real possibility for many patients is changing the way patients think about their health care. Many patients with health care issues will make regular appointments with a general doctor in order to receive treatments for their particular health issue. Now that functional medicine is available as an alternative medicine choice, the focus is no longer only on how to treat the issue.
Instead, there is a new focus on why the patient has the diagnosis for the health issue in the first place.
Common health conditions
The following are some of the more common health conditions that functional medicine can help to treat:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Heart disease
- Aches and pains
- Thyroid conditions
Reversing chronic diseases results
A patient who suffers from a chronic disease has imbalances in their body. Thus, it is necessary to explore these imbalances at length in order to develop a treatment plan that addresses the main issue. People need to understand that the reversal of a chronic disease is going to vary on a person by person basis. Since functional medicine focuses on the entire well-being of the patient, it can help identify the underlying issue that needs treatment.
A treatment that only focuses on the symptoms will never help the patient return to a life without pain. Our treatment can even work in accordance with other treatment plans to help find the solution that works for the individual patient.
Heart disease treatment
The reversal of chronic diseases like heart disease is possible using functional medicine. We will meet with the patient in order to create a personalized care plan with a goal of reversing the heart disease. Heart disease treatment is not only essential to a patient’s overall good health, it is necessary for a long life.
The treatment process for heart disease reversal will depend on what is going to effectively restore the patient’s ability to function on a daily basis without pain. This often includes making lifestyle changes that promote good health, learning how to manage stress and taking any prescription medications or supplements.
Hypertension is also known as high blood pressure and is a common chronic disease diagnosis. When a patient high blood pressure, they are much more susceptible to heart failure, heart attack, kidney failure, diabetes or peripheral vascular disease. Since there are alternative options for treating hypertension that focus on using new approaches, the opportunity to reverse this chronic condition is a possibility.
The hypertension treatment process often requires a patient to make dramatic lifestyle changes. This includes participating in a regular exercise regime as well as making healthy food choices. Additional hypertension treatment options include maintaining a healthy weight, learning how to manage stress, not smoking, finding ways to relax and laughing often.
Occupational medicine is a branch of medicine that treats work-related health issues and injuries. When one seeks functional medicine along with occupational medicine, patients often recover more quickly. Some of the more common work-related issues employees may experience include slipping and falling and being exposed to hazardous chemicals.
The treatment process in place for treating patients who have been injured on the job will utilize natural alternative treatment options that address the whole person, and accordingly will be specific to each individual patient.
While our treatment techniques are effective, they require the patient to participate. Many techniques with functional medicine involve the patient making and maintaining lifestyle changes. These lifestyle changes are not only going to promote the treatment, but they will also promote a better lifestyle.
