Functional Medicine

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function.

How does functional medicine work?

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

We work individually with those who are looking for a Nutritional or Functional Medicine approach for their digestive issues and for those who are serious about long term cleansing and detoxification.

Some common examples: Heartburn, Indigestion, Bloating, IBS, Constipation, diarrhea, Colitis, frequent belching are all signs that the body is not well.
