What is Functional Medicine?

According to the Institute for Functional Medicine, the practice of Functional Medicine is defined as how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. This model allows patients and practitioners to work together to identify and address the underlying issues of disease and illness to promote overall wellness. The functional medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered and science-based approach that requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors. This particular model empowers patients and practitioners to create a personalized treatment plan, with achievable and improved patient outcomes. At Anti-Aging Centers of New Jersey, we practice functional medicine to help identify the root cause of an ailment or issue, rather than just treating symptoms. 


By addressing the root cause and “big picture” rather than just symptoms individually, practitioners and doctors explore the complexity of a disease or health issue. It’s possible they may find one condition has many different causes that can result in many different conditions, unique to each situation.
