We are living at a time during which most Americans are overfed and malnourished, chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, cancer, etc. are growing exponentially, and a large part of the medical system has lost its focus on patient care. At Banks Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we believe that lifestyle is at the core of your health. That is why we use Functional Medicine to address patients’ problems from a holistic approach. In addition, Dr. Scott Banks is a Certified Gluten Practitioner who can help you change to a healthier, gluten-free diet and lifestyle.
What is functional medicine?
Functional Medicine is science-based healthcare that is focused on what is best for the patient, and integrates traditional western medicine with alternative medicine like nutrition, diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes to address chronic diseases and underlying causes. While a regular doctor’s visit may focus on solving just one issue, like diabetes, Functional Medicine looks to address why the diabetes has started, what other health problems it is causing, and how it can be reversed and/or improved.
Dr. Scott Banks has been practicing Functional Medicine for approximately 20 years, helping patients address issues like diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular problems, endocrine problems, as well as, a host of other health issues by teaching patients new lifestyles via diet, exercise, and using whole food, certified supplements.
In November 2013, Dr. Scott J. Banks, DC, IFMCP, PC joined an elite Group of IFM Certified Practitioners. As a graduate of The Institute for Functional Medicine’s Certification Program (IFMCP), Dr. Scott J. Banks, is uniquely trained in the functional medicine model to identify and treat the root causes of chronic disease. In order to achieve the designation of IFM Certified Practitioner, Dr. Scott J. Banks has completed 7 onsite training seminars and passed stringent written and case study evaluations.
The key to reversing the rapidly spreading epidemic of chronic disease is to address the underlying causes and solutions for chronic disease, which are primarily driven by the lifelong, daily interaction among an individual’s genetics, environment, and lifestyle choices. Functional medicine not only incorporates the latest in genetic science and systems biology, but it also enables health care practitioners to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine while empowering patients to take an active role in their own health.
Our goal at Banks Chiropractic and Wellness Center is to help you see your health as a whole picture and not single, isolated symptoms. Often times many symptoms have linked causes and by addressing all the roots of health problems, symptoms and chronic diseases can be reversed, or even prevented.
