What is Functional Medicine?

"Functional medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of dis-ease.

Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual's illness"


"The functional medicine model is an individualised, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.


It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalised treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes."
