What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine heralds a new shift in the way that we view health and disease. Using the latest advancements in medical testing, together with trusted holistic analytical tools and a forward-thinking approach to healthcare, functional medicine uncovers the root cause of illness and disease. Once identified, an individualized health program is drafted that includes condition-specific natural health supplements, a nutrition diet plan and lifestyle recommendations based on your unique bio-individuality.

You were born to stay healthy

Your body was designed to be self-repairing, self-regenerating – if given the right environment. With an increased toxic load, poor diet, elevated stress levels and lack of exercise, the body starts to display signs and symptoms. Symptoms are the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong, whether it is a digestive disorder, weight gain, chronic fatigue, hormonal imbalance, allergies, heart disease or cancer. Very often we find that many of these symptoms stem from the same root issue.

Functional medicine recognizes this and evaluates these contributing factors on an individual basis; working efficiently to resolve root-cause issues as opposed to treating the symptoms. Functional medicine is based on a ‘patient-centered’ model rather than a ‘disease-centered’ model of health care, restoring health, wellness and vitality instead of treating disease.
