Slide1:  At the heart of medicine lies the individual and each patient’s unique story… At the heart of medicine lies the individual and each patient’s unique story… That Story Is Typically Told As…:  That Story Is Typically Told As… Chief Complaint (CC) History of Present Illness (HPI) Past Medical History (PMH) Family History (FH) Dietary History Supplement and Medication History Lifestyle, Social, and Exercise History Physical Exam Findings Laboratory Evaluation Slide3:  In conventional medicine, the aim is to arrive quickly at the diagnosis This emphasis on diagnosis is particularly critical in the acute care setting; rapid diagnosis leads to rapid treatment Treatment in this setting must be prompt, as it is often designed to “lock down” and control physiology The chief complaint and history of the present illness become the critical aspects of the story; the rest of the patient’s story is truncated when other information is seen as superfluous to reaching the diagnosis Slide4:  In acute care, the patient’s story is squeezed down to the chief complaint and history of the present illness while the diagnosis increases in importance. Slide5:  Example #1 Chief Complaint: Wheezing Diagnosis: Asthma Attack bronchodilators corticosteroids tightness in the chest sudden onset asthmatic history shortness of breath History of Present Illness Slide6:  Example #2 Chief Complaint: Chest Pain Diagnosis: Heart Attack angioplasty thrombolytics sweating arm numbness shortness of breath History of Present Illness Slide7:  The clinician proceeds directly to the diagnosis –naming the disease – in order to identify as quickly as possible a medication to treat that disease THE RESULTS: Little attention is paid to the patient’s story beyond the chief complaint and history of the present illness The patient’s whole story is not understood Each complaint becomes a discrete issue, dealt with in isolation from the others Problems arise when the acute-care model is used to address chronic long-term health issues Slide8:  Hypercholest- erolemia Statin Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease H2 blocker Depression SSRI Hypertension ACE inhibitor Migraines Triptan Osteoarthritis NSAID Irritable Bowel Syndrome Dicyclomine …the result is a focus on treating each symptom complex as a separate and distinct “disease” with a separate and distinct treatment. Slide9:  Each individual diagnosis becomes a distinct entity unto itself. The patient’s whole story never has a chance to be heard and understood In context. Slide10:  It is apparent that – in its rush to diagnose – conventional medicine is focused on the branches and leaves of the tree, and not the trunk and roots.

Where does the symptom come from? That is, what are the antecedents and triggers? What keeps it going? That is, what are the mediators? And what can be done to change that dis-eased homeostatic balance point the patient is locked into? That is, what are the underlying points of leverage where intervention can be most effective? In the functional medicine model, the patient’s full story is of central importance Instead of a preoccupation with how to name the disease, the critical questions become: Slide13:  First, the full story must be understood within the context of antecedents, triggers, and mediators antecedents and triggers mediators To answer these questions requires a new perspective on the chronic-care model Slide14:  Infectious micro- organisms Structural or physical damage Nutrient insufficiency Xenobiotics Disrupted light cycles—circadian dysrhythmias Radiation Emotional trauma Spiritual angst Nutrient excess Food toxicants (allergens, stimulants, etc,) Drug side effects Adiposity Toxic metals Aging Situational stress–fear, anxiety, worry Genetic pre- disposition (SNPs) Hyperglycemia Hypoglycemia Excessive exercise Excessive noise Dysbiosis The story is no longer just the CC and HPI, but is expanded to encompass all the patient’s history that may reveal the source(s) of symptoms.

These fundamental clinical imbalances are the underlying mechanisms of disease… Slide16:  Exercise Acupuncture Manipulative Therapies Phytonutrients Minerals Vitamins Diet Yoga Drugs Surgery Counseling The expanded model permits the clinician to choose from an enlarged toolkit of therapies. Meditation Slide17:  Let’s apply the functional medicine model to an apparently simple case… …a 37 year old female with a chief complaint of chronic headaches. Slide18:  Diagnosis: Migraines Treatment: Triptan Chief Complaint: Headaches History of present illness We’ve already seen how she might be treated using the existing model. Slide19:  But her case may not be as simple as it appears… Slide20:  From a functional medicine perspective, the CC and HPI must be filtered through the relevant antecedents, triggers, and mediators. To understand the patient’s complete picture, past medical history, family history, diet, medications, and lifestyle all need to be viewed through this lens as well.
