Functional Medicine in Olathe

Dr. Mills writing on wallFunctional medicine addresses the underlying cause of disease, not unlike the philosophy behind the art and science of chiropractic. This specialty uses a systems-based approach that involves both the patient and the doctor in a therapeutic partnership. Think of this cutting-edge science more from the standpoint of creating ideal body chemistry, rather than the correction of physical imbalance.

Mills Chiropractic & Wellness Center embraces this modern evolution in the practice of wellness optimization. Functional medicine shifts the traditional disease-focused outlook of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach.

Supporting Whole Body Health

Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. We pride ourselves on spending quality time with our patients as we examine the unique blueprint that each possesses, including genetic issues, environmental considerations and lifestyle factors. These individual characteristics can influence long-term health and raise of possibility of acquiring complex, chronic disease.

Who Can Benefit from Functional Medicine?

Almost anyone can experience benefit from functional medicine, but here are conditions that respond particularly well:

  • Auto-immune dysfunction
  • Diabetes
  • Inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Thyroid malfunction

The Success Factor

Functional medicine protocols always begin with specific lab work, so that we can examine the strengths and weaknesses of your unique body chemistry. However, it’s been our experience that the commitment and involvement of the patient is paramount to a successful outcome.

Depending on your body’s unique blueprint, a customized action plan will be developed for your consideration. This plan usually involves lifestyle modification, nutritional supplementation and dietary guidelines to help you transform your health.
