Functional and Metabolic Medicine

Functional and metabolic medicine shifts the focus of medical practice from treating disease symptoms to a more holistic approach that takes into account genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that influence long term health. 

Functional medicine strives to determine the 'why' of chronic disease (e.g. obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, mental illness and auto-immune disorders), One disease can have several causes, and one cause can manifest as several different diseases. Every complex and chronic disease is preceded by a long-term disturbance in functionality which can be identified and effectively managed to facilitate better health outcomes.

Functional medicine focuses on biochemical individuality, metabolic balance, environmental context, genetic predisposition and lifestyle choices. Thus functional medicine determines why and how illness occurs and then restores health by treating the root causes of that disease in that specific individual. The aim of functional medicine is to achieve the best possible level of health and vitality.
