Functional medicine is a science-based and patient-centred approach to healthcare that seeks to discover how and why illness occurs. Instead of disease as the point of focus, Functional Medicine addresses the inter-connecting biochemical, genetic and lifestyle factors that underlie disease and dysfunction.
This approach delivers the ultimate in personalised health care with nutritional medicine and lifestyle modifications as core features.
This specialty has gained significant momentum in the United States and is set to revolutionise our current medical model of health care.
Now practicing from the new Bloomfield Medical Centre in Orange.
