Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating treatment methods, not separating them.
As one of the few physicians in Tampa trained at The Institute of Functional Medicine, Dr. Di Leo prioritizes a method of functional medicine that addresses the body as a unified system, uncovering the root cause of a patient’s disease
The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:
- Functional Medicine practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. Our team listens to you and gathers important information regarding your health concerns. We also take the time to uncover information in your health, lifestyle and environmental histories that could be contributing to these concerns.
- Root cause assessment and lifestyle changes are prioritized over prescription medication.
- Patients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encourage to take an active role in improving how they feel.
Utilizing the functional medicine approach can allow patients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope. Instead of relying on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief or to mask the root cause, Dr. Di Leo and his team at Intrinsic Wellness Clinic, approach health challenges holistically in order to support the body’s ability to heal itself.
Whether Intrinsic Wellness Clinic is the first clinic you are visiting for help, or simply the latest one, we’ll make sure we do everything in our power to find an effective path to your health restoration and make sure it’s also the last clinic you’ll need to visit.
