What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is essentially modern alternative Western medicine. It uses the research model of Western medicine but can implement newer findings sometimes years before mainstream MDs adopt it. In addition, functional medicine uses botanicals, vitamins, minerals, and other supplements instead of pharmaceuticals.

Most importantly, functional medicine shifts away from a disease-oriented approach and addresses the underlying cause, resulting in a more personalized medicine. It is preventative because it notices imbalances or tendencies far before a disease manifests. Chinese medicine is very similar to this and why I have chosen to integrate the two.
