The Benefits of Functional Medicine Training
Why is functional medicine and integrative psychiatry critical for mental health providers?
As a provider, using functional medicine and integrative psychiatry can present new avenues for mental wellness that patients may not find with traditional psychiatric treatment. Functional, metabolic and integrative psychiatry provides personalized, whole-body methods that address a patient’s unique imbalances of body, biochemistry, mind and spirit. Rather than focusing on medications to manage symptoms and mask the underlying health issues, these approaches help providers target the root causes of mental illness to provide relief and promote healing.
By treating a patient’s unique imbalances – whether that be chemical, nutritional, genetic, hormonal, toxin-related, dietary, lifestyle, environmental, or digestive – you can eliminate symptoms, reduce medication-dependency, facilitate whole-body balance, and ultimately, improve overall mental health. Using functional protocols will help your patients get better faster and feel a brand new sense of wellness. And as a provider, you’ll discover a new sense of confidence in treatment, as you can finally deliver lasting paths to recovery and wellness.
