Functional Medicine is a biochemistry approach to medicine and healthcare practice at the highest level. It treats illness and promotes health by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient through advanced diagnostic testing. Accessing the leading testing laboratories on the globe - to get accuracy and detail in the results - there is no comparison to the testing services of general allopathic healthcare providers.
The outcome of the testing and PHD biochemistry analysis is to Individually tailor solutions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance though prescription nutrient medicines plus occasional drug intervention where useful - for example when a specific strain of parasite is detected , a parasite specific drug may be used then nutriceuticals and dietary plans implemented.
Functional Medicine focuses on understanding fundamental physiology through biochemical PHD analytics, the environmental inputs, and the generational predispositions that influence health and disease so that protocols are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not just masking symptoms.
Over the past 100 years general medicine has become increasingly separated from medical research and the GP has become dependant on drug companies for medical "strategy" in treating chronic health conditions. This separation has contributed to an epidemic in chronic diseases with no fundamental solutions and real answers that one can truly call "health" care - instead drug use has sky rocketed in it attempts to supress chronic symptoms rather than understand their causes.
