Functional Medicine

  • Determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual

 

  • An approach to restoring health that is individualised, patient-centered and science-based.

 

  • Empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying cause(s) of the problem

 

  • By focusing on the root cause of chronic conditions instead of a symptoms-only approach, functional medicine practitioners become better positioned in identifying the complexity of disease and achieving better clinical outcomes.

 

  • Mind-body awareness, health and wellbeing are side effects of the process

 

  • The Institute for functional medicine and the Functional medicine university determine eligibility for training in functional medicine depending on  qualifications and therapeutic field.
