What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a medical, integrative, and science-based approach addressing the underlying causes of a lack of optimal health, ill-health, and disease.

It is a model of healthcare that engages both client and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership, where the focus is on the client as a whole, not just on isolated symptoms. Functional Medicine looks at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.
