Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating treatment methods, not separating them. At Bluegrass Functional Medicine, we prioritize a method of functional medicine that treats the unified system of your body.
The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.
The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:
- Medical practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. A doctor will only make a medical diagnosis after listening carefully to a patient’s history, documenting their personal choices, and medicinal interactions.
- Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches
- A prioritization is placed on utilizing advanced medical testing.
- Patients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encouraged to take an active role in improving how they feel.
Utilizing the functional medicine approach allows patients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope. Instead of relying on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Dr. Meek and her team at Bluegrass Functional Medicine diagnose problems holistically in order to find permanent solutions.
Since the founding of her practice, Dr. Meek has helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, migraines, and more.
Whether Bluegrass Functional Medicine is the first clinic you are visiting for treatment, or simply the latest one, we’ll make sure we do everything in our power to find an effective treatment and make sure it’s also the last clinic you’ll need to visit.
