Functional Medicine

Helping people live vibrant and healthy lives is at the core of all we do.
At FireMedIV the foundation for all that we do is functional medicine or a root cause approach to health.

What is Functional Medicine and how does it differ from traditional medicine?
Functional medicine is the practice of root-cause medicine. It is our goal to treat every health condition from the root cause, in order to resolve health problems where they begin and restore excellent health when possible.

Today traditional medicine too often takes a one-size-fits-all approach to health. That means that the same treatments are typically prescribed for everyone with a given condition, without regard to the underlying cause or driver of disease. Functional medicine, on the other hand, takes a more personalized approach. At FireMedIV, Dr. Julie Hinman DNP, FNPc will work closely with patients to identify the root cause of their health issues to develop individualized treatment plans focused on your personal history, individual genetic history, nutrition, lifestyle, and mindset. To us, you will never be a nameless client to quickly push through the door with a script for a drug to mask your symptoms. Instead, we aim to really get to know you as an individual, including all the factors that play into your overall health, such as your genetics, lifestyle, and environment.

Too often, traditional medicine treat the disease and not the patient. They don’t take the time to understand all that makes you unique. The demand of insuranced based model of care leaves most Americans feeling the stress of an overburdened healthcare system which seems to push people through the system without regard for true health and wellness.
While that standard model of care can work well for emergencies, trauma, and acute diseases, it fails to address the underlying causes of chronic diseases that affect so many Americans. We are confident that with our expert guidance and the right tools, your body can, in many cases, heal itself, leading you to feel lasting results in your health and wellness. without regard for true health and wellness.
