Functional Medicine

Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating multiple pathways, not separating them. At Healing Platform , we prioritize a method of functional medicine that acknowledges the unified system of your body.

The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.

The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:

  • Practitioners that prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. A doctor will only make a diagnosis after listening carefully to a patient’s history, documenting their personal choices, and medicinal interactions.
  • Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches.
  • A prioritization is placed on using functional diagnostic laboratory testing to identify the root causes of your health conditions within the complex network of interconnected systems that make up the body.
  • Patients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encouraged to take an active role in improving how they feel.

Utilizing the functional medicine approach can allow patients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope. Instead of relying on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Dr. Pederson and her team at Healing Platform will identify the underlying imbalances in the body that need to be corrected. Holistic methods such as nutritional support, lifestyle modifications, and shifts in mindset will be implemented to allow the body to restore balance.

Since the founding of her practice, she and her team have helped patients with life-altering conditions such as fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, migraines, and more.

Whether Healing Platform is the first clinic you are visiting for treatment, or simply the latest one, we’ll make sure we do everything in our power to find an effective plan and make sure it’s also the last clinic you’ll need to visit.
