Many people in the San Diego area are curious about functional medicine, what it is and if it may be helpful for their health issues or concerns. At Reproductive Wellness we want to help our patients live their healthiest, most vibrant lives. From issues that impact fertility such as endometriosis, PCOS and thyroid disorders to prostate problems, low testosterone, menopause and PMS, functional medicine is often combined with conventional medicine to better evaluate, manage and prevent chronic disease for significantly improved patient outcomes.
With conventional medicine a diagnosis is often made based on symptoms; functional medicine seeks to uncover the root cause of disease and illness in the body. Instead of focusing on disease, the focus is on the patient and takes into account the whole person rather than a specific set of symptoms.
There are many factors that impact health including diet and nutrition, physical activity, stress, genetics, relationships, environment and lifestyle. In functional medicine, we give each patient the time and attention essential to learning how all of these factors interact in order to provide treatment or therapy that promotes long-term health and reduces the risk of chronic disease.

Functional medicine integrates the best of traditional Western medical practices with alternative medicine, often referred to as integrative medicine. The focus is to provide patient-centered care that promotes the health and vitality of not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well. Treating chronic disease is important, however we understand how crucial it is to prevent illness and disease through diet, nutrition, exercise, herbal medicine, stress management techniques, diagnostic and laboratory testing, prescribed drugs and other components of both conventional and functional medicine. All systems in the body work together; one does not function apart or separate from the others, which is why it is so important to focus on the whole body
Unlike conventional medicine where tens of thousands of patients often take the same prescription medication for a particular health issue or disease, there is no “one size fits all” remedy in functional medicine. It is important for our practitioners to establish a personal relationship with patients in order to determine the best treatment plan based on the patient’s history in regards to genetics, lifestyle, environmental factors, health, and more. Essentially, we partner with you in an effort to empower your health and help you achieve optimal wellness.
