Imagine living at your optimal level of health, free of chronic diseases and conditions that compromise your quality of life. What if we told you this is not a fantasy but a real and attainable goal, at whatever your age?

Functional Medicine is comprehensive healthcare for the 21st century, an innovative approach to restoring balance, returning optimal health and the opportunity to live optimum lives.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is an evidence-based approach that uses scientific principles, advanced diagnostic testing and the prescription of natural supplements and treatments to achieve optimal health. It may be used to treat anything from ageing issues to adrenal disorders, cancer prevention to chronic insomnia, thyroid disorders to digestive disorders, sexual health to psoriasis.

“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.” – Sir William Osler, co-founder of John Hopkins University School of Medicine and “Father of Modern of Medicine”

A patient-centred approach means that rather than focusing on the condition, symptom or disease, Functional Medicine treats the patient as a whole. A patient’s health history, lifestyle habits, emotional well-being and genetic disposition are essential pieces of information in helping a Functional Medicine practitioner determine missing pieces to optimal health. This results in a highly personalized approach and supports a patient’s unique expression of health and vitality.
