Their approach is personalised to each individual and is backed by scientific research.
Functional Medicine (FM) addresses the underlying causes of disease, and addresses as a whole person; not just an isolated set of symptoms. FM practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their history and looking at the interactions among genetic, nutrition, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. It involves cutting edge functional testing fog gut microbiome, hormonal imbalances, micronutrient deficiencies etc. In this way, FM supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
