Functional Medicine Clinic
Welcome to Vita Medical Clinic, specializing in Functional Medicine. Vita Medical Clinic is located in Cordova Bay Pharmacy.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a comprehensive systems approach which addresses the root cause of chronic disease.
It is a patient centered care model which focuses on the whole person rather than an isolated set of symptoms. Although our current medical system is efficient in managing acute conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, acute infections and conditions requiring surgical interventions, it lacks in addressing the prevention of chronic disease such as, but not limited to obesity, lipid disorders, hormone balancing, diabetes, hypertension, mood/stress, sleep, gastrointestinal issues, irritable bowel and chronic fatigue. These chronic diseases are often lifestyle driven. Addressing lifestyle factors such as stress, relaxation, exercise and nutrition can reduce the burden of chronic disease. Modifying these lifestyle factors can play an important role in overcoming and potentially correcting preventable chronic disease. This is the heart of Functional Medicine.
Using a patient centered approach, Dr. Sparanese at Vita Medical Clinic creates a care plan to assist individuals in preventing the burden of chronic disease.
Individuals are responsible for the cost of this service as it is not covered by MSP.
