WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Functional medicine is a systems biology approach to incorporating biochemistry, physiology, toxicology and microbiology in order to restore homeostasis by seeking causes of dysfunction. It is a personalized medicine approach incorporating the person’s family history, work history, genetics (if available) and lifestyle to reach improved outcomes. Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. It is truly the biopsychosocial model for health care delivery.
"Functional Medicine is a personalized, systems-oriented model that empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest expression of health by working in collaboration to address the underlying causes of disease." - IFM
