Functional medicine is a modern approach that is designed to amend treatment courses and make them more suitable for modern medical techniques. Functional medicine aims to determine the original causes of illness, without a major focus on symptoms. This type of therapy switches from usual disease-centered medicine and provides the patient with individualized and more effective treatment.
These diagnostic insights are determined through a complex analysis of the patient’s lifestyle, habits, and general state of health. Functional medicine examines patients’ blood, urine, or stool samples, thus giving the practitioner a more complete assessment of the patient’s allergic susceptibility, metabolism, and much more.
