Functional Medicine locates and addresses the root causes of diseases and helps patients make the necessary lifestyle changes to restore vitality and good health. Diseases (both chronic and acute) are often the results of imbalances and dysfunctions of the body’s normal processes. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes leading to the onset of the diseases rather than treating the symptoms.
Functional Medicine focuses on the control and understanding of fundamental cellular processes, environmental influences, and genetic predispositions that affect health and lead to the manifestation of diseases. Both at the preventive as well as diagnostic and therapeutic level, Functional Medicine is a real asset for the etiological and essential treatment of diseases.
