Personalized Medicine Q & A
What’s personalized medicine?
Personalized medicine means customized care and treatments just for you. The plans at Today’s Integrative Health use the functional-medicine model. This means that your care focuses on prevention of chronic disease and customized management of illness when needed.
Ultimately, personally tailored medicine at Today’s Integrative Medicine means that you get exactly what you need. It also means that you’re never treated like just one of the crowd.
How’s personalized medicine different?
Many medical practices today deliver care based upon “standards of care.” The general theory behind that is simple: patients all need the same thing according to what the clinical trials say.
However, the truth is that one patient is not the same as the next one. Treatments that work perfectly for one patient might be useless to another. The results of clinical trials reveal how the majority of patients responded. This type of medicine assumes that each of their patients fall into this majority.
With a tailored medical plan, you’re treated as an individual. Personally planned medical treatment is different because there aren’t any assumptions based on other patients’ data.
How do you predict disease in personalized medicine?
This approach doesn’t rely on family history as heavily as other medical approaches do. Many doctors use family history to help determine risk factors for disease and illness. Your personalized-medicine doctor is able to determine your own individual risks through careful analysis of your individual characteristics. This includes close attention to:
- Your age
- Your gender
- Your height and weight
- Your dietary habits
- Your overall environment
- Your individual medical history
Your doctor can evaluate your specific genetic composition and lifestyle. This gives a deeper understanding of your total health and wellness. This allows your doctor to;
- guide you in effective disease prevention
- providetreatment of existing conditions in the most customized way possible.
