Functional Medicine in Atlanta

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners like Dr. Lynn FLowers MD spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. (Visit the Institute for Functional Medicine.)

How is Functional Medicine different than other practitioners?

Flowers Medical Group in Atlanta is focused on helping you live healthy as you age, not only without disease but with vitality and enjoyment. As a functional medicine provider, we integrate everything in your life to get the "big picture" of what could or might be causing symptoms of disease. This includes getting a detailed history, physical exam, specialized labs, dietary intake, fitness assessment, social history, stress level, and genetic analysis to predict and reverse disease.

Are the Treatments backed by Science?

Dr. Lynn Flowers and other Functional Medicine practitioners use research based studies for the treatment of patients. An individualized plan is designed for each patient that might include: vitamin or herbal supplementation, bioidentical hormones, fitness prescription, stress reduction, and dietary changes to assist you in aging well and preventing disease. We combine traditional Western medical practices with integrative medicine to provide you with the best overall care that you deserve.
