What is Functional Medicine and Why Does it Matter?

Functional medicine is a science-based, healthcare approach that assesses and treats underlying causes of illness through individually suitable therapies to restore health and improve function. Functional medicine focuses on changing the patient’s state of health to his/her fullest potential. Functional medicine links research in basic science with developing options in clinical care to create safe and effective prevention, early intervention, and multifactorial treatment of complex chronic conditions. The understanding of physiological and biochemical function/dysfunction of the body systems produces a unique approach to health care that focuses on achieving health through normalizing and balancing the function of the body.

The Principles of Functional Medicine

  • A science-based field of health care

  • Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness

  • Patient centered versus disease centered

  • Dynamic balance of internal and external factors

  • Web-like interconnections of physiological factors

  • Health as a positive growth – not merely the absence of disease

  • Promotion of organ reserve – healthspan

  • Immune & Inflammatory Imbalance

  • Energy Production/Oxidative Stress

  • Gastrointestinal Imbalance
