Functional Medicine at Salt Lake Health and Vitality

Conventional medicine has progressed into a “crisis management” function under the current healthcare system. Primary care physicians may not be able to a great extent, unless you have an illness that can be identified or diagnosed.

Functional medicine is an evolving practice in healthcare. It is engrossed on discovering solutions to reach optimal health, rather than diagnosing disease and using patented medications to battle isolated symptoms. Functional medicine utilizes a preventative methodology to healthcare by detecting the root cause of symptoms or dysfunctions from a whole body viewpoint.

This integrative, science-based approach, studies the big picture- taking the complex arrangement of interactions such as a patient’s medical history, physiology, and lifestyle that can spearhead illness into consideration. Not only is the genetic composition taken into account, so are internal concerns relating to mind and spirit, as well as social and environmental factors. The objective for every treatment design is to unleash the body’s own innate ability to mend itself and function at the most supreme level.

At Salt Lake Health and Vitality, Dr. Cooper is skillfully trained in functional medicine methods, integrating proven strategies and therapies to rejuvenate, repair, and restore the body. The pillars of a healthy regime include sleep, stress management, physical activity, and nutrition. Functional medicine offers the tools required to build a solid foundation on those fundamental lifestyle pillars to transform your health, well-being, and life.
