Functional Medicine is an integrative health care approach, based on the newest cutting edge research findings in medicine, biochemistry, genetics and technology.
It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease. Instead of asking ‘What drug matches up with this disease?’, Functional Medicine asks the questions ‘Why do you have this problem in the first place?’ , ‘What can we do to restore function?’, ‘What can we do to optimize health and wellbeing in the long run’, and ‘What can we do to prevent and slow down ageing and age-related conditions?’.
It considers the unique interactions in the patient’s history, physiology and lifestyle that can lead to chronic illness and/or faster ageing, along with the unique genetic makeup and ‘epigenetic’ factors like hormones, neurotransmitters (‘brain chemicals’ like serotonin), low grade inflammation, nutrient deficiencies, heavy metal toxicities, social and emotional state.
