Functional medicine investigates and treats the root causes of disease in order to help patients restore optimal health and wellness. Instead of looking for a specific diagnosis and "controlling" it with medication and surgery, we zoom out and look at each individual as a whole.
Our multifaceted approach to restore balance (mind/body/spirit) usually takes care of the underlying dysfunction that led to disease in the first place.
Transforming your health is intense work, requires full commitment, and is a worthy investment of your time and money. Contact us today to schedule an appointment if you are ready for this life-changing experience. We promise that you'll have fun along the way!
Take Responsibility of your Health
Functional medicine addresses the whole patient and doesn’t just treat the isolated symptoms you are having. Conventional medicine often asks “what disease do you have and what medication can I give you for it?” Functional Medicine seeks to understand why you have a particular condition. Functional medicine looks at lifestyle and environmental factors to chart a course for care. Nothing happens in a vacuum, and your illness is a result of something else going on in your body and life.
There is no such thing as a "quick treatment" for systemic illnesses. We want you permanently cured, not just alleviated of your symptoms until they return again. Excellent health is a way of life and a reflection of life choices — big or small — that we make each day. Start your journey of reclaiming your health and get your quality of life back. If you are looking for functional medicine near Chicago, Green Circle Wellness Clinic is the best destination. Schedule an appointment with us today!
