    What We Do

    Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.  The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, evidence-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.

    The Institute for Functional Medicine works to advance the highest expression of individual health through the widespread adoption of Functional Medicine.  To achieve this goal, our work is primarily focused in these five areas:

  • 1.     Education. We train Functional Medicine clinicians to act as change agents in reversing the epidemic of chronic disease. 
  • 2.     Access. We facilitate the broadest possible integration of Functional Medicine into the global healthcare system. 
  • 3.     Economics. We ensure that the practice of Functional Medicine is economically viable for providers, patients, and payers. 
  • 4.     Collaboration & Development. We create and support key alliances that advance IFM’s mission to make Functional Medicine the standard of care. 
  • 5.     Research. We catalyze and facilitate clinical research that supports the Functional Medicine model.
