What Is Functional Medicine And How Does It Work?

Functional Medicine

Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating treatment methods, not separating them. At ViaVitae Health, we prioritize a method of functional and lifestyle medicine that treats the body as a whole.

Via = Way; Path
Vitae = Living

It’s frustrating to suffer and not feel well, to not feel heard, to feel like you’re bouncing around to different experts who only focus on one piece of the puzzle without seeing the whole picture.

We believe in YOU and your body’s ability to heal itself when given the right environment and conditions. It is our mission to empower you with the right resources and information so you can achieve health freedom and live the life you deserve.

At ViaVitae Health, we help people whose lives are obstructed by chronic pain conditions find solutions with natural, science-based methods without having to be dependent on drugs or pills.

Functional Medicine is a system in which the doctor and patient work together to determine and address the root causes of conditions, from lifestyle down to the cellular level.

Often when it comes to chronic pain conditions, the conventional medical model attempts to address the puzzle with limited pieces. How can you put together a 10 piece puzzle with 2 pieces?

Functional Medicine takes into account the whole picture of health. When we have all the pieces, we can successfully assemble the puzzle.

The principles that characterize functional and lifestyle medicine are as follows:

  • Practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with patients. A doctor will only make a diagnosis and treatment plan after listening carefully to a patient’s story and goals, and analyzing functional test results.
  • Assessment, targeted approaches and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see or “shoot in the dark” treatment approaches.
  • A prioritization is placed on utilizing the most modern and advanced testing procedures available. 
  • Patients take an active role in their health. They are educated and armed with resources to improve how they feel.

The functional medicine approach finally provides hope to patients who have been searching for answers to their problems for years. Instead of relying on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Dr. Inesta will help find permanent solutions.

Since the founding of his practice, he has helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, migraines, and more.

Whether ViaVitae Health is the first clinic you are visiting for help, or the latest one, we’ll make sure we do everything in our power to give you an effective plan, and to make sure it’s also the last clinic you’ll need to visit.
