Functional Medicine Q & A

What is functional medicine?

In functional medicine, rather than simply treating your symptoms, your doctor works together with you in a partnership to understand the complexities of your illness. It’s a relatively new holistic approach to medicine in which doctors look at a number of factors that may contribute to your illness, including your:

  • Genetics
  • Lifestyle
  • Environment

Functional medicine physicians like Dr. Rastogi combine aspects of traditional and modern medicine to uncover the underlying causes of your symptoms and give you customized treatments based on your unique needs.

What types of conditions does functional medicine treat?

Dr. Rastogi uses functional medicine to treat a number of conditions, including:

  • Depression
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

If you’ve visited conventional doctors, had blood tests done, or taken medication for your symptoms and still aren’t feeling better, functional medicine may be a great option for you. You may also benefit from functional medicine if you’re looking to prevent illness, restore balance, or stay healthy.

What can I expect during my appointment?

Dr. Rastogi spends more time talking with you than you might expect from a conventional doctor. To pinpoint the cause of your symptoms, she asks you specific questions about your personal and family medical history, diet, and lifestyle choices, and may perform physical examinations and laboratory tests.

Once Dr. Rastogi has uncovered the underlying cause of your symptoms, she recommends treatments to help you regain and maintain optimal health. Types of treatments may include:

  • Changes to your diet
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Herbal medication
  • Stress management
  • Exercise
  • Chiropractic treatment
  • Pharmaceutical medication

By working together with you to learn about your symptoms and uncover their root cause, Dr. Rastogi establishes a customized treatment plan to help you reverse imbalances or prevent the onset of chronic diseases in the first place. In many cases, patients experience health benefits beyond what they would have received through conventional medicine, which tends to simply respond to symptoms as they arise.
