Take the Reins on Your Health with Functional Medicine
Functional medicine is a way of thinking. It asks doctors to look at the mind and body as a system, rather than a collection of parts.

While conventional doctors may look at a symptom and assign a treatment to cover up the symptom, functional medicine practitioners will look at a symptom and try to determine the root cause. 

Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum is the founder of the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, which trains medical professionals to become functional medicine coaches. These coaches work in collaboration with conventional doctors to help patients determine where to begin their treatment and how to achieve their desired results. 

Listen as Dr. Scheinbaum joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss functional medicine.
