Dr. Banks' Care Philosophy

The key to reversing the rapidly spreading epidemic of chronic disease is to address the underlying causes and solutions for chronic disease, which are primarily driven by the lifelong, daily interaction among an individual's genetics, environment, and lifestyle choices. Functional medicine not only incorporates the latest in genetic science and systems biology, but it also enables health care practitioners to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine while empowering patients to take an active role in their own health.

Dr. Banks says...

The rising rates of chronic disease are creating a huge burden on the economy and the current health care system is not adequately addressing the problem. Conventional health care is rooted in an acute-care model focused on rapid diagnosis and long-term pharmaceutical interventions. Functional medicine is a model for 21st century health care that focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying causes of chronic disease by recognizing that each patient is biochemically unique, a product of the continuous interaction between their genes, their environment, and their lifestyle choices. Only by finding the specific causes of each patient's disease and providing treatment that is individualized to that patient will we be able to reverse the epidemic of chronic disease.

Dr. Banks says...

Functional medicine is a personalized, systems-oriented model that empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest expression of health by working in collaboration to address the underlying causes of disease. The primary drivers of the chronic disease epidemic are the complex daily interactions among an individual's genetics, environment, and lifestyle choices. Functional medicine addresses these underlying causes of disease and equips healthcare practitioners to help their patients manage this complex, interconnected web.
