How Does Functional Medicine Work to Treat Sleep Problems?
Functional medicine can be an effective way to determine the cause of sleep problems. With functional medicine, the goal is to determine the underlying causes of the issue so that it can be effectively treated. This may be done through evaluating all factors that could be contributing to poor sleep and attempting to treat the underlying cause whether it is nutritional, stress, hormonal, medical, inflammatory or pain related. If you believe you may be suffering from sleep apnea, we recommend you seek evaluation from an appropriate sleep center prior to visiting the Falcone Center for evaluation.
