Functional Medicine

Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating treatment methods, not separating them. At Willowbend Health & Wellness, we prioritize a method of functional medicine that treats the unified system of your body.

The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not 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.

Functional Medicine is investigative, more holistic, safer, patient centered, integrative and preventative. 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
  • A prioritization is placed on utilizing the most modern and advanced medical equipment that is available. Instead of using antiquated equipment for outdated treatments, newer devices that can treat the complex network of interconnected systems that make up the body
  • Patients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encouraged to take an active role in improving how they feel.

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 being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Dr. Gee and her team at Willowbend Health & Wellness diagnose problems holistically in order to find permanent cures.

Since the founding of her practice, she and her team have helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, migraines, and more.
