What is functional medicine?
There are many approaches to medicine, health and well-being. Functional medicine is a personalized, systems-oriented form of care in which patients and doctors work together to address the underlying causes of complex chronic disease. Rather than providing disease-focused care, functional medicine offers patient-centered care, taking nutrition, fitness, lifestyle and hormone balancing into consideration.
The Prevea Functional Medicine team is led by Dr. Kristen Lindgren. After practicing family medicine for eight years, she completed a fellowship in anti-aging, regenerative and functional medicine.
She believes we have control over how we age and feels strongly about giving patients the tools they need to improve their quality of life. Dr. Lindgren enjoys watching the transformation that takes place when patients are able to optimize their lifestyle, weight, and hormones.
