Functional Medicine

A Complete Whole Body Approach to Get to Your Root Cause of Disease

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented scientifically researched approach that engages both patient, and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. By changing from the traditional disease oriented model of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person.

Functional Medicine is the evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses healthcare issues for the 21st century. Functional Medicine Practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and we evaluate the interactions of genetics, environmental and lifestyle influences, which can cause consequences on long-term health and chronic disease.

The Functional Medicine Practitioner utilizes this detailed information, while evaluating comprehensive blood analysis to design a patient specific thorough health plan, tailored for the individual. Dr. Vaughan’s philosophy is “No one patient is the same, and everyone is giving the care she would like for her family”.

The Functional Medicine Practitioner utilizes this detailed information, while evaluating comprehensive blood analysis, food sensitivity test, saliva test, stool analysis, etc., to design a tailored patient specific thorough health plan.
