Functional Medicine (FM) is a holistic, personalised approach that allows you and your health practitioner to achieve the highest level of health for you by working together to address the underlying causes of your health issues.
A positive step forward
It embodies a definite advance in the practice of healthcare that better tackles the healthcare requirements of the 21st century.
A more patient-centered approach
By moving from a disease-centered focus of orthodox healthcare to a more patient-centered approach, FM considers you as a whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Simply put, the FM practitioners believe all of your symptoms to be a manifestation of the same underlying causes. By treating these causes, it is possible to bring about real, deep, lasting healing.
An FM healthcare practitioner spends time with you, listening to you and looking at the link between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence your long-term health problems. In this way, FM supports your unique expression of health and vitality.
