The Future is Functional Medicine ( 30 minutes): The Patient as an Individual
Have you heard of functional medicine but not sure what it means? Is it the same thing as holistic medicine? The idea behind functional medicine is that one can not only prevent disease and troubling health conditions but in many cases, reverse them. Dr. Lans will explain the philosophy of functional medicine and its emphasis on uncovering the root cause of the physiologic imbalance in a patient. He will also explore how functional medicine incorporates nutrition and botanical therapies, lifestyle approaches and stress reduction programs.
In a world where patients feel rushed and without the time to communicate effectively with their doctor or even ask questions Doctor David Lans is a different kind of physician. He believes to be an effective and thoughtful physician it is important to view each patient as a unique individual, whose physiology results from a combination of inherited and environmental influences.

After completing his formal training, Doctor Lans was appointed to the faculty of Albert Einstein Medical School, where he engaged in clinical practice, teaching medical students and postgraduate trainees, and conducting research.
Private Practice Focus & Philosophy
In time, Doctors Lans opened his practice in New Rochelle, NY with the desire to treat his patients through integrative medicine; combining a traditional approach with functional medicine. While orthodox medicine focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disease, functional medicine is patient-centered and emphasizes an understanding of the underlying causes of physiologic imbalance in the individual patient.

The idea behind functional medicine is that one can not only prevent disease and troubling health conditions but in many cases, reverse them.
