Functional Medicine Marietta

Why functional medicine is the future of healthcare

There’s nothing tentative, or provisional, or experimental about functional medicine, nor is it an approach that’s “out there” on some kind of fringe, especially in Marietta. The basic tenets of functional medicine have been known and practiced with wisdom by humankind in different cultures for millennia.

Today, functional medicine is gaining prominence because the limits of an earlier era of medicine are being reached. The “fix me” era is passing away, and the “miracle cures,” although welcome and in some cases undeniably lifesaving, have shown their limitations.

Here, at Genesis4Wellness in Marietta, functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Specifically, it includes the following:

  • Recognizing that preventing disease is even better than curing it.
  • Understanding that diseases and disorders often have more than one cause.
  • An awareness that those various causes combine differently in different people.
The answers that come from this common sense approach are as individual as the patients themselves.

For the sensitivity and perception that these new answers require, we, at Genesis4Wellness in Marietta, have pursued the education, the qualifications, and the experience to assure confidence from anyone who wants to take an active part in her or his well-being.

The Five Disruptors

Knowing what ails you is half the battle

Though the answers are individual, many of the threats to human well-being are threats we share. We see these as the five “system disruptors”:

1. Poor Diet: Challenges the body’s ability to work properly.
2. Toxins: Disrupts the body’s own defenses and healing systems.
3. Emotional Stress: Our pace and distractions invite chronic illness.
4. Physical Stress: Our sedentary lives threaten health profoundly.
5. Microbes: Autoimmune disorders and chronic illness as part of our genetics.

Against these five disrupters, Genesis4Wellness crafts a personalized, integrated program of defense, based on each patient’s distinctive needs and conditions. The body’s own natural ability to protect and heal itself is empowered by proper treatment. Discerning the measures that deliver that empowerment for each patient and applying them with intelligence and sensitivity is our proven approach.

Our professional team is composed of MDs, nurse practitioners, chiropractors, and massage therapists who work together without bias to offer you a whole answer for improving your health and well-being, your quality, and your enjoyment of life.

Your progress is measured and monitored, from a baseline assessment, through focus on your particular needs and concerns and on through an overall approach for living that nurtures your body, mind, and spirit.
