What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine asks how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. By acknowledging each patient’s genetic make-up and addressing key environmental and lifestyle factors, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual. We understand that a diagnosis of disease can likely be the result of more than one cause and that one specific cause or symptom can lead to different diseases.
The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease in order to promote optimal wellness.

Why work with us?
Rhett Women’s Center offers the Functional Medicine Model of care because we are passionate about giving patients the tools to restore health. We understand the complex web of chronic disease and that many seemingly separate symptoms are often connected. Working through those symptoms can take time and perseverance. We use a systems-based model taught by the Institute for Functional Medicine. We offer extended appointment times, because you need it, want it, and deserve it. We want to work with you to find the root cause of your symptoms and disease, not just use prescription medications for temporary improvement. We want to help you heal and teach you how to reverse your disease with better lifestyle choices. We want you to get well and feel empowered to stay well. Our goal is to deliver a healthcare experience that is focused on your individual needs and goals in order to reach your optimal level of health. Get ready to LIVE each day, not just merely survive it!
