The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of connection and integration, not isolation and 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:
- Medical practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. A doctor will only make a medical 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
- Patients are encouraged to take an active role in improving how they feel. Patient engagement is the #1 factor in recovery and healing!
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 prescription medications again and again for temporary relief, Dr. Horacek diagnoses problems holistically in order to find permanent cures.
Combining traditional Internal Medicine and cutting edge/ancestral Functional Medicine, Dr. Horacek has helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), pre-diabetes, uncontrolled diabetes, depression, anxiety, and coronary artery disease.
