Calgary, Alberta – Traditional allopathic medicine has a long history of opposing alternative healing professions, but with the recent surge in chronic illness, more and more physicians are acknowledging the value of restorative medicine and preventive wellness. These physicians now find themselves on the vanguard of a whole new approach to medicine, which seeks to integrate these philosophies into the existing healthcare paradigm.
One of these physicians is Dr. Lynne Murfin. After more than 25 years as a traditional medical practitioner in family practice, Dr. Murfin realized it was time for a new way to care – a better way.
“I wanted to explore total health beyond the absence of disease, and combine the best of traditional medicine with research based alternative practices,” says Dr. Murfin. “I wanted to gain a clearer and more complete picture of my patients’ health.”
Today, Dr. Lynne Murfin is a functional integrative physician offering restorative medicine and transformative care.
“Functional integrative medicine has given me a new lens through which to view my patients,” says Dr. Murfin. "With functional integrative medicine, I have a new toolkit to dig deep and go upstream and find where processes are problematic and heal the patient."
While traditional medicine remains the foundation of who she is and what she does, Dr. Murfin says we’ve missed the boat when it comes to the tsunami of chronic illness that’s swept across North America. She says it’s not about looking at diseases, but rather looking at systems.
“I’m most proud of my newfound ability to actually heal a patient,” says Dr. Murfin. “I’ve been completely rejuvenated as a physician. There should only be one kind of medicine: good medicine.”
