Functional & Integrative Medicine Q & A

Rogers Medical Ltd.

What is functional and integrative medicine?

Functional and integrative medicine are two types of healthcare involving a more holistic approach to healing than conventional medicine.

In functional medicine, the practitioner sees your body as a complex network of interconnected parts.

A principle of functional medicine is disease can stem from a multitude of emotional, mental, or physiological factors. If one of these pieces isn't operating at an optimal level, it can compromise your entire body and your health.

While conventional medicine aims for symptom relief, functional medicine identifies and treats the cause.  

Integrative medicine is similar to functional medicine in that it treats the whole person. With integrative medicine, a physician may choose to use alternative healing methods combined with conventional approaches, “integrating” the patient’s care to include a variety of treatments.

How does functional or integrative medicine treatment work?

With functional and integrative medicine treatment, Dr. Rogers starts by getting a clear picture of your current health. That includes assessing your past health problems, your lifestyle, major accidents or illnesses from your childhood, emotional or physical traumas, and other factors that can influence your emotional and physical well-being.

Dr. Rogers creates a unique treatment protocol based on your symptoms and treatment goals, which may include:

  • Supplements or medication to support your health
  • Diet and nutrition recommendations
  • Lifestyle changes to support a more balanced mind-body state

As you advance through your treatment plan, you meet with Dr. Rogers to assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
