Functional Medicine is dedicated to prevention, early assessment, and improved management of complex, chronic disease by intervening at multiple levels to correct core chemical imbalances and thereby restore each patient’s functionality and health to the greatest extend possible.


Basic principles of Functional Medicine paradigm:

-An understanding of biochemical individuality;
-Supporting the evidence of a patient-centered approach, not a disease;
-Restoring a dynamic balance of internal and external factors of patient’s body, mind and spirit;
-Promoting of organ reserve to enhance the health span, not just the life span of each patient.

“You know something is awry with your health if you experience painful symptoms; but what about symptoms that people tend to think of as “part of life”?  For example, do you experience headaches regularly? Do you get gassy after meals? Well, headaches, gas, bloating, hair change, weak nails, stubborn fat, and other “everyday” health problems are not supposed to happen. These are all signs that something is off balance in your body.” – Functional Medicine 101:A Guide to Getting Healthy Once and For All
