Why Functional Medicine?
A biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of diseases, along with treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs.
You Don't Have To Suffer From A Disease To Benefit From Functional Medicine.
Every person is unique, both genetically and biochemically, and therefore one medicine or treatment does not fit all. An individual’s genetic history, along with environmental and lifestyle factors can have an influence on their overall health and chronic disease, and is taken into consideration when developing a treatment plan.
Focuses On Underlying Causes
Functional medicine is less concerned with making a diagnosis, but is more focused on the underlying dysfunctions or imbalances. This approach aims to address those underlying disease-causing mechanisms and ultimately offer you a long-lasting solution to your illness.
Active Approach To Healing
Functional medicine aims to optimize the functioning of the individual’s organs and tissues and to heal and help prevent diseases associated with aging. This may involve correcting an imbalance of natural substances within the body.
Optimizing Health & Wellness
Ultimately, functional medicine focuses on optimizing an individual’s health, wellness, and vitality. This approach can be used to prevent, treat, or slow the progression of many degenerative conditions throughout the body.
Re-Balance Of Body Systems
The human body has a natural ability to balance and self-regulate all of its internal systems. Functional medicine can help to correct an imbalance of substances within the body which may have come about as a result of illness, medication, or environmental or lifestyle factors.
The most up-to-date genetic science research in order to pinpoint why certain symptoms are exhibited to accurately craft a wellness plan specifically for the patient. Functional medicine aims to create an opposing effect using natural methods in order to treat the specific manifestations of disease within each individual.
