Functional medicine aims is to resolve the underlying causes of disease, using a system perspective that focuses on functionality rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. It involves a therapeutic partnership between client and practitioner.
Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their clients, understanding their histories and looking at the interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic diseases. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
