Why You Should Embrace the Functional Approach
Feeling burned out in your current role? You’re certainly not alone. Research suggests that more than 50 percent of physicians now experience burnout, with some literature proposing even higher numbers, up to 80 percent of the physician population. It makes sense: if you’re a doctor, you’re almost guaranteed to face high patient volumes, long working hours, and countless other stressors from the current medical system.
We all want meaningful and rewarding work. In your case, you want that work to involve helping your clients and patients find health, yet your current role undermines your ability to do just that. Functional Medicine allows you to get to the root cause of a patient’s concern—to help them truly heal and make a lasting, positive difference in their lives. What’s more, Functional Medicine embraces a collaborative healthcare model to provide you and your clients with extra layers of support and create a better, more satisfying work environment.
