What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is built on the idea that “normal” is different for everyone. Because no two people are exactly alike, you can’t treat them exactly the same way. Each person has a unique combination of health history, genetics and environmental exposures, nutritional needs, and lifestyle habits. That’s why functional medicine practitioners tailor treatments to address unique factors in each individual. This can include clinical nutrition advice, supplements, lifestyle modifications, and even appropriate medications.

Benefits of functional medicine
Gets to the root cause
Traditional medicine diagnoses a problem and then attempts to treat it with drugs or other approaches, but functional medicine digs deeper, looking at why you developed that problem in the first place.
Functional medicine is an approach to health care that marries the latest scientific advances with the wisdom of holistic healing traditions.
Because of its focus on prevention, functional medicine can efficiently treat chronic or acute conditions by considering your genetic makeup, physical environment, and emotions.

Main causes of disease
Most of us have been affected by environmental toxins and pollutants in some way. This is because we live in a modern, industrial world where natural resources such as fresh air and clean water are becoming increasingly scarce.
An unhealthy lifestyle exposes your body to harmful substances, chemicals, and toxins and damages your organs while increasing your risk of developing chronic illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, and pulmonary disease.
Not all diseases are caused by outside factors. Some are genetic. You inherit traits like hair and eye color from your parents, but your genes can also cause you to develop a disease like sickle cell disease, asthma, or even cancer.
