What is Wellness medicine? Wellness, as I defined in a previous blog post, is the intentional care for your health. Wellness medicine is the practice of Functional medicine to promote an environment of healing and for the intentional care for the health of patients. Functional medicine can still use the disease paradigm focus. In Wellness medicine, Functional medicine is focused in the Wellness paradigm.
Dr. Goodyear is a leader in the Functional Medicine/Wellness movement. Dr. Goodyear has 2 goals:
- improve and optimize the health of his patients
