Functional Medicine

Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating treatment methods, not separating them. At Pro-Active Wellness & Injury Centre, we prioritize a method of functional medicine that treats the unified system of your body.

The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.

The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:

  • Practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their patients. A doctor will only make a diagnosis after listening carefully to a patient’s history, documenting their personal choices and medicinal interactions.
  • Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches
  • A prioritization is placed on utilizing the most modern and advanced equipment that is available. Instead of using antiquated equipment for outdated treatments, newer devices are used that can treat the complex network of interconnected systems that make up the body
  • Patients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, you are to be armed with information and encouraged to take an active role in your pursuit of obtaining “The best performance of your life!”

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, Dr. Bartosh diagnoses problems holistically in order to find permanent cures.

Since the founding of his practice, he has helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, migraines, and more.
