Treat Migraines and Other Common Chronic Conditions With Functional Medicine

Share

Patients visit their clinicians for all kinds of reasons�from the absurd to the mundane�but the chief complaint tends to be one of only a handful of non-acute conditions. In a study of more than 140,000 Minnesotan patients, researchers found the most common clinical complaints included:

  • Skin disorders
  • Osteoarthritis and joint disorders
  • Cholesterol problems
  • Upper respiratory conditions, excluding asthma
  • High blood pressure
  • Headaches and migraines1

Surprisingly, the researchers discovered the most prevalent complaints affected all sexes and age groups and were not conditions related to aging, such as diabetes and heart disease.1

Knowing how to effectively and efficiently address these common complaints can significantly improve patient compliance and patient outcomes. For instance, in the following video clip, Robert Rountree, MD, offers a clinical strategy for migraines, which are the third highest cause of disability worldwide.2-4 Dr. Rountree explains how to use lifestyle and nutrition to relieve migraine symptoms and address their underlying causes.

Robert Rountree, MD, explores how lifestyle and nutrition can support migraine treatment.

At IFM�s Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP), our educators will teach you strategies to find the underlying causes of migraines, as well as many other common complaints you tend to see in your practice. Using a case-based, collaborative format, you will learn about Functional Medicine strategies to treat various hormonal, gastrointestinal, and cardiometabolic conditions. AFMCP provides the tools you need to build upon your current clinical skills and improve your outcomes with all types of non-acute conditions.
