Functional Medicine is personalized medicine.
It is a new and comprehensive approach to health care that focuses on prevention and finding the underlying or root cause of illness, instead of simply treating the symptoms of disease.
Functional Medicine is a science-based approach to healing. The basic principle is that each person is biochemically unique and, therefore, no one treatment is right for everyone. The approach is individualized for your health needs and focuses on a patient-centered not disease-centered model of care.
