What is functional Medicine

What is Functional Medicine? 

Functional medicine is a bodily systems-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of your health symptoms rather than addressing the symptoms alone. The main principles of functional medicine are:
  • Each individual possesses a unique, complex, biochemical and physiological profile, due to genetic and environmental differences, therefore care should be personalised
  • Our organs and systems are not autonomous but are interconnected in a web-like network. Therefore, every organ and system can affect every other organ and system in the network, so the whole person needs to be treated rather than only the diseased part.
  • The focus is on achieving optimal health rather than just avoiding disease
My nutritional therapy practice is entirely based on the functional medicine approach
