What is Functional Medicine?
"When someone becomes sick, they rarely do so in a way that completely matches the textbooks. Rather than trying to find the proper label for the person's health condition, Functional Medicine identifies its complex mix of causes. For treatment, Functional Medicine utilizes the latest research findings on supplements, diet and other natural tools for restoring balance in the body's primary physiological processes." (Functional Medicine University, www.functionalmedicineuniversity.com).
Functional Medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on uncovering the root cause of health issues and restoring balance to the body’s intricate systems. Unlike traditional medicine that often treats symptoms, functional medicine delves deeper to understand the underlying imbalances that contribute to your well-being.
Functional medicine recognizes that every individual is unique, with a distinct genetic makeup, lifestyle and environmental exposures. By addressing these personalized factors, practitioners aim to create tailored treatment plans that address the whole personal rather than isolated symptoms utilizing supplements, diet and other natural tools for restoring balance in the body.
