The Medicine of ‘Why?’ Comes to Stamford
Aug 01, 2017 04:40AM
As a patient, Dr. Tatiana Fleischman, a board-certified internal medicine physician, knows the frustration of going from doctor to doctor and getting yet another prescription that doesn’t work. Or the fear of feeling sick and not knowing why.
Fleischman, the medical director of Integrative MD in Stamford, has added a new approach to her practice. She has completed formal training in functional medicine at The Institute for Functional Medicine and is now listed in the institute’s official web directory.
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease and the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners look at patient history, and the interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. Oftentimes, the answer is imbalances, typically between hormonal, digestive and detoxification systems. Genetics, toxic environments, emotional states, diet and activities can cause them.
