Brazos Integrative Medicine

Functional Medicine Overview

Functional medicine is a proactive medical approach that focuses on whole-body health by addressing the underlying causes of sickness, pain, inflammation, and disease. Dr. Kirk uses functional medicine because she believes that true health is not just having no diseases, but rather living in abundant health, wellness, and vitality.

At Brazos Integrative Medicine, functional medicine follows three principles:

The cause is the cure

Address the cause, alleviate the symptoms, cure the problem.

Proactive vs. Reactive

Brazos Integrative Medicine raises the bar for what’s considered healthy. Optimal health range guides make it easy to find problems early and treat them proactively; as opposed to traditional medicine, which will treat a problem reactively.

Test and Retest

Any diagnosis you receive will be tested thoroughly by your attentive team of caregivers and retested for accuracy.
