What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine employs biochemistry as a fundamental tool to investigate and understand the intricate workings of the human body at a molecular level. By delving into the biochemistry of an individual, practitioners aim to uncover the root causes of various health issues, such as chronic diseases or imbalances. This approach involves in-depth analysis of biochemical pathways, including the metabolism of nutrients, hormones, and toxins. Through thorough analysis of history and where needed advanced testing and assessments, functional medicine practitioners can pinpoint deviations from healthy biochemical processes, which might manifest as symptoms or diseases. With this insight, they create personalized treatment plans, often incorporating modest dietary changes, targeted supplements, and lifestyle adjustments to restore proper biochemical balance. In essence, functional medicine leverages biochemistry to provide tailored, precise, and holistic care, aiming to not only alleviate symptoms but also permanently address the underlying biochemical imbalances.
