Functional Psychiatry

Functional Psychiatry

Functional psychiatry is a sub-specialty of integrative medicine. It puts the patient first and empowers them to achieve an optimum health level through collaboration with their physician. This model addresses the underlying causes of diseases instead of merely band-aiding problems. It is an eclectic blend of Eastern and Western medicine.

Diseases often have an underlying cause, and functional psychiatry treats the imbalances and dysfunctions often overlooked, missed, or even denied by many providers. Treating the root cause of a patient’s health problems leads to long-term relief and vibrancy. Identifying and fixing the underlying root causes cures the mind, body, and spirit.

Functional Psychiatry is not new or “alternative medicine.” Sir William Osler, one of the first professors at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said, “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.”
We use scientific principles, advanced diagnostic testing, and holistic treatments in addition to manmade drugs or surgery. Contact us today at (941) 205-7150 to learn how applying functional psychiatry can restore your body’s balance and health.
