What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine addresses the whole person and not just a set of symptoms. It addresses the underlying causes of disease. It is a patient centered focused approach whereby the practitioner and the patient work together to develop a plan that is individualised to the patient’s own set of needs and requirements. Functional medicine empowers patients to take an active role in their own health. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.
