Functional medicine (FM) is a whole body biology-based approach to health, healing and aging. It is based both in science and modern research as well as traditional methods such as herbalism, Ayurveda and Chinese medicine.
Functional medicine seeks to impact root cause of a disease and restore health through natural means, such as lifestyle and dietary changes, detoxification, nutritional and herbal supplementation and emotional clearing.
Because primary focus of FM is to restore normal body functioning and not only suppress symptoms, health improvements are often slower to appear and require sustained effort from both the patient and practitioner.
In our clinic we use Cyberscan scalar testing of body systems and therapeutic protocols to optimize bio-compatibility.
We prefer using food based vitamins, minerals and herbal products to synthetic ones. Hormonal replacement is not a prominent part of our protocols as we strive to restore endocrine glands through natural means.
