Varsha Rathod M.D. Joins Elite Group Of Certified Functional Medicine Practitioners

If total healthcare costs in the United States, more than 75% is due to chronic conditions. The key to reversing the rapidly spreading epidemic of chronic disease is to address the underlying causes and solutions for chronic disease, which are primarily driven by the lifelong, daily interaction among an individual’s genetics, environment, and lifestyle choices. Functional medicine not only incorporates the latest in genetic science and systems biology, but it also enables holistic doctors/health care practitioners to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine while empowering patients to take an active role in their own health.
