As new as the term “Functional Medicine” would appear to be, the practice of “Functional Medicine” is certainly not. Functional medicine is merely the practice of assessing and treating the body as a “whole”, more commonly referred to as “Holistic Medicine”.
Often when we seek treatment, the focus is on the symptoms and not the problem’s source. Functional medicine aims to identify the source of the mechanisms driving your symptoms and provide you with the best set of interventions required to improve your health. These interventions can include personalised treatments, nutritional plans, detoxification and lifestyle changes, among other approaches.

The complexity of chronic diseases makes them a difficult challenge for medical approaches following standard treatment protocols. Hence, there is an urgent need to find a better way to approach these diseases.
