How Can Functional Medicine Help You?
Healthcare should teach you how to be healthy and optimize your wellness. Today’s health care is mainly pharmaceutical care, using the medication as a bandage covering up a bigger issue. With Functional medicine, you address your symptoms as well as the origin of your illness. It incorporates the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of health into part of your treatment.
Dr. Williams provides a customized approach that starts with a consultation. She and her team review your health history, genetic background, lab results, and discuss any tests she would like to perform. Together you establish health goals and treatment options.

What is the purpose of functional medicine?
The purpose of functional medicine is to partner with the patient and help them learn how to maximize their health and address the root cause of their disease.
