Integrative Medicine vs Functional Medicine: Whats the …

Posted: November 19, 2018 at 7:41 am

What is integrative medicine and what is functional medicine? How are they different and how do they relate to one another?

So first let me say we are all on the same team here. Integrative medicine doctors and functional medicine doctors are all working to achieve the same goals and we all should hopefully get along extraordinarily well and not have any ill will. Being an old timer myself and having built integrative medicine clinics and managed them and also having run functional medicine clinics, let me say we all have more in common than we realize and there is not a right or best version in all this. So that being said let me try to define the differences more as a means of clarification than any attempt to put one group down.

Just writing integrative medicine vs. functional medicine as a phrase makes it look like a competition, just like the Golden State Warriors vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers for the NBA title. As a life long Oakland Warriors fan I can definitively say the Warriors are a better, prouder and simply superior team to Cleveland! All kidding aside, when comparing the difference between functional medicine and integrative medicine its more akin to comparing a Mercedes to an Audi. Can you really say one is better? Theres personal preference, personal opinions and over all experience of the brand that impacts our choice. But picking one car out as superior is quite arbitrary and based on our views and opinions. Its funny one of the statements that my Buddhist teacher at the monastery I studied at in Thailand would always make was that his western students main problem with achieving enlightenment were our views and opinions. His Thai students didnt suffer from this same affliction. So beware of your opinions they can be quite misleading at times. Within these two areas of natural health practitioners, there are equal numbers of excellent doctors in each area and you may find its more the individual practitioner that you connect with and are helped by versus what specific area within the field of natural health they focus on.

Functional medicine is a very specific area that focuses on a few key things: finding the underlying cause of a patients health problems, using a laboratory based analysis system to determine what is wrong, using supplements to correct problems with medications as needed, and focusing ever more and more on lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, sleep and meditation. Integrative medicine is a term that is used more broadly. An integrative medicine clinic, such as the one I built, has many facets. My old clinic had a medical doctor on staff, acupuncture, chiropractic massage, talk therapy, nutritional coaching and a gym in the back. We integrated treatments for our patients using many modalities often at the same time with the same patient complaint. As an example if someone had constant severe headaches they might get a chiropractic adjustment, nutritional assessment for magnesium deficiencies and a food allergy test to see if diet was a trigger and if they didnt want to do an adjustment they might end up with a massage for their tight neck muscles or acupuncture. Someone suffering from depression might have brain wave mapping along with a holistic psychiatric work up. A good integrative clinic takes into account many different approaches to healing and wraps them together into the best possible package for an individual patient. Often, but not always, integrative clinics integrate conventional medicine into their protocols so theyll often have medical doctors on staff who can help people stop or start medications and offer more conventional medical services.

In my functional medicine clinics Ive run we have just done 100% functional medicine and not included the many other natural health treatment options available. Functional medicine clinics all share a few common characteristics, they all order functional lab testing. Meaning lab tests that are specific to functional medicine and look for functional problems, i.e. a problem with organ function that would appear prior to the onset of a disease process. For example, a functional test for heart health might detect low levels of antioxidants whereas a conventional test for heart health might detect a blocked artery. Functional medicine always strives to catch problems in their earliest phases when early intervention is possible and always includes significant lifestyle changes as part of treatment plans.

To confuse the matter, a large number of functional medicine clinics integrate other treatments and so are in essence both functional medicine and integrative medicine clinics at the same time. As for which is better? It really does depend on the patient and the doctor. Doctors in an integrative setting can typically offer a wider range of services. Doctors in a functional medicine only clinic are more focused on the one subject area at hand: functional testing and lifestyle coaching. Ive always had a passion for functional medicine and so practicing 100% functional medicine just made sense to me and Ive gotten extremely good at it. However, I can think of a dozen colleagues of mine that are equally skilled and offer more complete integrative treatment options. In other words they practice functional medicine but also operate in an integrative setting.

I think for the most part it comes down to the connection you establish with your doctor. In my case with a more focused practice where I just do functional medicine if I have patients that need other services I simply refer out. Back in the day when I had my own integrative clinic the referral was to a doctor down the hall in the same clinic, now its simply to someone across town. What I have learned in the last ten years of my twenty five year career, is that no one doctor can cover everything and that the best we can do is understand what the complete array of services out there is, integrative, functional, and so on, and be willing to make the best choices for our patients so we offer the best care we can and know how and when to refer out to other providers. In a way my functional medicine clinic is integrated with my community of doctors so that my patients receive the best of both worlds.

I recently heard two functional medicine doctors speaking together at a conference in New York and they were actually putting down a colleague because the other doctor practiced in an integrative medicine setting. I was stunned. How stupid can people be? Integrative and functional doctors are all looking to provide effective solutions either a little bit or far outside the conventional options of just drugs and surgery. Again were all on the same team here with the same hopes and goals. Simply put we want to provide safe and effective treatments to get people healthy without the risk and expense often associated with conventional practices.Oh, almost forgot, GO WARRIORS!

Overview Overview

Cleveland Clinic Childrens Center for Pediatric Integrative Medicine is dedicated to addressing the increasing demand for integrative healthcare by researching and providing access to practices that address the physical as well as lifestyle, emotional, and spiritual needs of children.

As the body of evidence for integrative medicine grows, we remain at the forefront of providing the most updated education and practices to our patients. We are able to care for children through their mid-20s, then provide seamless transition to adult providers.

Integrative Medicine services have become very popular in the United States, with more than 70 percent of Americans using them in some form.

Your child may benefit from integrative medicine as a complement to the care they are already receiving to treat chronic illness. Integrative medicine may help to reduce the severity or frequency of disease episodes, decrease stress related to chronic disease, and enjoy a better quality of life.

Our team members can coordinate appointments together to provide the patient with the best care.

Our team of dedicated pediatric physicians and therapists are certified to perform a number of complementary therapies, including:

Conditions that are commonly treated with integrative medicine include:

Increasingly, research shows that how we live, what we think, and how we feel affect our health. While conventional medicine can help diminish the consequences of unhealthy lifestyles, integrative medicine can reverse those consequences, prevent illness and reduce symptoms, resulting in:

Our team of dedicated pediatric physicians and therapists are certified to perform a number of complementary therapies, including:

To schedule an appointment with our team or for questions about the clinic, please call 216.448.6610.

The Center is based at Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital for Rehabilitation but some services are available at other locations.

The Center for Pediatric Integrative Medicine looks into the role of mind, body, spirit and lifestyle changes and how they can affect chronic disease. Studies yield evidence-based results that continue to encourage medical schools, hospitals and physicians to accept and incorporate these methods.

For example, research at Cleveland Clinic has shown that integrative medicine, including guided imagery, massage or Reiki, can help patients reduce their anxiety before surgery, to cope better with postoperative pain and to maximize their recovery.

Session 05.Soft Tissue Implants

Soft tissue implantsevolves engineering with the execution of an embedded device relies on both the materials utilized and the design of theimplant. This prerequisite of in-vivo perception speaks to one of the significant issues in the choice of fitting materials for use in the human body. Despite the fact that one may have a perfect material and design, the real execution likewise significantly relies upon the expertise of the specialists and the earlier state of patients. The clinical application of differentgraftsdepends on the amount oftissuerequired, the indication and the personal preference of the treating surgeon. One of the main challenges is to volumetrically evaluate and analyse the efficacy and stability ofsoft tissue auto graftsand theirsubstitutes.

Session 08.Stem Cell Transplantation

Stem cell transplantationalluded to asbone marrow transplant, is a system that replaces undesirable blood-forming cells with unhealthy cells and also used to treat somegenetic diseasesthat involve the blood. The basis forstem cell transplantationis that blood cells (red cells, white cells and platelets) andimmune cellsarise from thestem cells, which are present inmarrow, peripheral blood and cord blood. Intensechemotherapyorradiation therapykills the patient'sstem cells. This stops thestem cellsfrom making enough blood andimmune cells. Astem cell transplantaims to try and cure some types of blood cancer such asleukaemia, lymphoma andmyeloma. It is also called a peripheral bloodstem celltransplant. Analysts keep on improving undifferentiatedcell transplantationtechniques, making them a possibility for more patients.

Session 10.Cell & Gene Therapy

Gene therapyis currently only being tested for diseases that have no other cures. In future, this technique may allow doctors to treat a disorder by inserting ageneinto a patients cells instead of using drugs or surgery. Cells,tissue, or even individual, whengerm-line celltreatment ends up noticeably accessible adjusted bygene therapyare thought to be transgenic or hereditarily changed. Quality treatment could in the end focus on the redress of hereditary deserts, take out harmful cells, anticipatecardiovascular infections, square neurological issue, and even take out irresistible pathogens.

Immortality | The Secrets Of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel …

File:Machiavelli.jpeg Immortality is a physical trait, typically magical in origin, which temporarily or permanently stops the natural ageing process. Though immortal beings are still vulnerable to disease, poison, or injury, their body will remain the same physical age as it was when it was made immortal for an indefinite period of time. Some creatures and races (such as Elders and Archons) are naturally immortal, but most races (such as Humani) can only become immortal through artificial or magical means. Immortality such as this can be bestowed by a handful of powerful beings, though it can be easily revoked, causing the body of the immortal to reach its true physical age in a matter of seconds, resulting in death. Some spells are capable of granting eternal life - a spell contained within the codex has kept Gilgamesh alive for well over 10,000. The Codex also contains a recipe for the Philosopher's Stone, which grants immortality for a single month before the recipe changes and a new brew must be procured.

Elders often grant immortality as a gift to humans who have helped them. Since this type of Immortality can be revoked with a mere touch, immortals often become servants to Elders. Dark Elders use this leverage to control agents such as Dr. John Dee and Niccolo Machiavelli.

Some powerful beings are capable of bestowing immortality onto humans. Some Elders, such as Aten, Tammuz, and Quetzalcoatl are capable of granting immortality. The Earthlords Isis and Osiris also wield this power, which they used to control Dr. John Dee for centuries.

Nicholas Flamel has been kept alive for centuries by the Philosopher's Stone.

The Comte de Saint-Germain claims to have discovered and perfected a recipe for immortality that did not need to be renewed every month. However, given Saint-Germain's dubious character, this may not be entirely true.

Some spells can grant immortality. Abraham made Gilgamesh immortal (albeit in a flawed way) using a spell contained within The Codex. It is likely that Abraham made Tsagaglalal immortal using a spell as well, however she retains the use of her aura and her memory, which would indicate that the spell was further perfected after Gilgamesh.

Some substances can grant immortality. Injecting vampire blood grants immortality (and does NOT turn the human into a vampire) - Joan of Arc gained immortality upon receiving a blood transfusion from Scathach which was meant to save her life after she was nearly burned at the stake.

Replacing the aura as a life-force can (depending on the replacement) grant temporary or permanent immortality. The Hook of Aether has sustained Marethyu's immortality for millions of years.

"Immortality" is the thirteenth episode of the third season of Fringe.

As the story shifts back to life "over there," the absence of Colonel Broyles shifts the dynamic of the Fringe Team as they investigate a bioterrorist armed with an insect that has a taste for human flesh. Meanwhile, alternate Olivia is reunited with her beau, and Walternate remains determined to save his world but discovers there are certain lines he will not cross.

Dr Armand Silva, a scientist obsessed with now extinct skelter beetles, infects people on purpose to find out how to revive the beetles from extinction. Lincoln Lee (Alternate Universe) is now the new head of Fringe Division since Phillip Broyles (Alternate Universe) went missing and Walternate has not released the news about his death.

Brandon Fayette (Alternate Universe) tells Walternate that Cortexiphan worked on a certain subject, giving him telepathic powers before killing him. Brandon believes that younger patients will yield more promising results; however, Walternate firmly rejects that idea, showing that that is one line he will not cross.

Fauxlivia and her boyfriend, Frank Stanton, reunite after months of being apart although she keeps her distance, with memories of Peter Bishop still lingering. Frank reveals that he's going to propose to Fauxlivia, and she says yes despite her reservations.

When the Fringe team catches the scientist, they believe that he's infected Fauxlivia because she's showing symptoms of the previously infected. When he reveals that he is the final host and not Olivia, a beetle eats its way out, completing the scientist's work. Frank and the medical team are trying to help Olivia when they find movement in her stomach while performing an ultrasound. Frank is about to inject her with a powerful anti-parasitic when he is stopped by another member of the medical team, who shows him Olivia's blood work.

At the hospital, Olivia and the baby are both revealed to be healthy. Frank asks how long she has been pregnant. Olivia is actually six week's pregnant with Peter's baby; when Frank asks her if she loves "him," her silence reveals that she does actually harbor feelings for Peter and not Frank. Frank tells her that is all he needed to know and leaves.

Other Brandon tells Walternate that he believes he has found a way to bring Peter back to the other side.

Later, Olivia returns home to a house that is filled with boxes and Frank is obviously moving out. Walternate comes to visit Olivia and tells her that he will take care of her, as she is carrying his future grandchild.

Fauxlivia: Ugh, you know how I feel about bugs.Lincoln: Not Charlie. Charlie loves bugs.Charlie: Look lively, people. New boss is here.Lincoln: How is it that when you say "boss," it sounds like insubordination?Charlie: You see, that's my tone. Maybe that's why I didn't get the promotion.Lincoln: Yeah, maybe, or else I'm better than you.

Mona: I'm Foster... Mona Foster.Charlie: We, uh--we--we met before?Mona: I treated you for your arachnid infestation. I'm not surprised you don't remember me. You were in a lot of pain. So how are the spiders?Charlie: Uh, they're good. They--they--sometimes they just itch a little bit.Mona: Maybe you just need somebody to scratch it.

Fauxlivia: Bug girl's got a crush on Charlie.Charlie: Bug girl has a crush on the fact that I got spiders in my blood, kiddo.Fauxlivia: Come on, everybody's looking for someone that's gonna like them for who they are inside, right?
