What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is much more than just a quick doctors appointment; it is a full health assessment that is tailored individually, for each patient. We believe Experience Life in association with The Institute for Functional Medicine explain it well; here’s a quote from their eBook:
“In essence, functional medicine is a move away from the drug-based model
of fighting infectious diseases that worked so well in the 20th century to a
systems-oriented, patient-focused model designed to reverse the chronic-
disease epidemic. Today’s most prevalent health issues are mostly caused
by the interactions between genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental
exposures, and treating them requires both understanding these
interactions and designing appropriate treatments that are personalized
to each individual.”
Unfortunately, medical standards are outdated and are not individualized; mainstream doctors are taught to prescribe pills to ease the pain, but not cure the cause of the issue. But! Functional Medicine is a step in the right direction for our future.
