What is Functional & Integrative Healthcare for Women?

Functional & Integrative Healthcare offers the most options for women seeking answers to their health problems and provides a true art & science approach to holistic wellness by addressing disease from its roots, not just managing a disease and its symptoms.

Functional Healthcare expands the conventional model of medicine by going beyond the diagnosis and subsequent treatment with prescription medications and/or procedures (like surgery), to seek out why an illness has occurred.

By identifying and addressing the root causes of health problems not just treating symptoms, by treating each woman individually and uniquely and by utilizing a broad approach to wellness that may include traditional prescription medications and treatments but will definitely go beyond this – a functional approach to women’s health leads to a well-balanced and healthy woman.

Additionally, functional healthcare doesn’t discount or dismiss a set of symptoms that may not have an obvious diagnosis. The emphasis is on achieving optimal health of the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.

Integrative Healthcare is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle.

It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.

Integrative healthcare combines the practices and principles from a variety of treatment modalities, including naturopathy, homeopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture, Ayurveda and implements botanicals, natural supplements and body therapeutics such as craniosacral, massage, yoga, Reiki, meditation and more to restore balance and health in all body systems.

At Schmidt Health, the underlying root causes of your problem will be uncovered, looking at all the aspects – social, psychological, environmental and spiritual – that impact your health and develop a plan to balance your body systems, bringing you to wellness.
