In this episode of the Healthy Steps show on WMNF Tampa, Dr. Fred Harvey provides an in-depth look at functional medicine, highlighting its role in transforming healthcare by focusing on root causes and personalized patient care. Dr. Harvey explains how functional medicine differs from conventional medicine by treating the whole person rather than just the disease. He discusses the principles of functional medicine, such as biochemical individuality, the importance of lifestyle and nutrition, and the interconnectedness of the body’s systems.

Dr. Harvey shares his experiences attending the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Annual International Conference and emphasizes the importance of evidence-based practices and patient-centered care.
