A personalised health care approach. identifies and addresses biochemical, physiological, environmental and psychological factors to reverse disease progression and enhance vitality.
Functional medicine is a science-base approach to health and wellness that assesses the needs of each person independently according to their biochemical, emotional, and genetic individuality, and how they interact with their environment.
Instead of focusing on treating the symptoms, functional medicine aims to treat the underlying causes of chronic disease. This is done through holistic, patient-centered care, where the primary focus is on treating the whole patient and restoring well-being.
We use biochemical individuality to assess the needs of each patient independently. This allows us to check any personal variations in metabolic function that develop due to genetic or environmental causes. Integrative medicine focuses on the patient’s quality of life. We understand that health cannot be measured through the absence of disease, but rather with the evaluation of your health through your overall well-being. We can do this through focusing on positive vitality in each of our patients. This is a holistic perspective towards health, one that acknowledges the orchestrated connection of a body as one singular unit. When you approach your health holistically, it becomes possible to weigh the connection between our fundamental physiological processes and environmental factors. The goal of functional and integrative medicine is to offer an alternative treatment route for most chronic diseases. With the proper medical support, many chronic diseases are preventable or reversible. Functional medicine addresses internal and external factors that influence our well-being, to find and treat the underlying cause of chronic disease.
Integrative medicine aims to balance internal and external factors that are at work in your body. This is done through a systematic approach to well-being that features eight main components:
‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.’
