Personalized Functional Medicine in Sacramento

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of people in the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses you as a whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

Functional medicine practitioners spend more time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.


Neuroplasticity refers to the brain’s ability to reorganize itself. We know the brain is capable of creating new neural pathways, which allow it to adapt to your needs. According to MedicineNet, “Neuroplasticity allows the neurons, nerve cells in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and adjust their activities in response to new situations or changes in their environment.”

At InTouch Functional Medicine, we use the principles of neuroplasticity in our therapy programs and have found it to be effective in the treatment of certain disease states and pain.
