What is Functional Medicine (Holistic Medicine)?
Functional medicine is an alternative type of medicine that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of a disease and you as an individual, rather than just the symptoms. It is a non-invasive comprehensive approach to healing that looks for solutions over prescriptions. Unlike Western medicine, functional medicine relies on more holistic and natural methods of treatments.
What Happens During Functional Medicine (Holistic Medicine)?
At Healing at Sweetgrass we always choose the non-invasive functional medicine approach first. We begin with an in-depth medical history and lab evaluations. This helps us determine the reason your body is not functioning optimally and why that reason exists. We then work to eliminate the cause and replace your body with what it needs to run at its best.
Dr. Bauerschmidt begins treatment by using his proprietary DEEPER Healing® protocol to assess your health concern and develop your comprehensive treatment plan. Dr. Bauerschmidt doesn’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Everyone is biochemically different and needs to be treated as such. With the DEEPER Healing® protocol, Dr. Bauerschmidt focuses on the following:
Diet – What you eat, how you digest your foods and absorb their nutrients.
Emotions – How much emotional stress is in your life and how you process it.
Environmental Toxicants – Your current and past exposure to heavy metals and toxic chemicals.
Physical Factors – Your hormone, exercise and activity levels; physical changes in your body that might have already started. Clogged arteries are an example.
Elimination – Cleansing protocols help your body eliminate accumulated toxins.
Regeneration – Giving your body the nutrients and oxygen it needs to rebuild, restore cellular metabolism and function at its best.
