What is Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a customized, evidence based approach to treat and prevent chronic lifestyle diseases.

This stream of medicine involves the whole person approach and does not isolate each body organ.

All chronic lifestyle diseases, which are prevalent in current times, are due to the defects in the metabolism. Functional Medicine looks at the underlying factors affecting the overall metabolism of the body. It therefore is able to correct multiple disorders arising due to broken metabolism.

Defects in metabolism could be due to-

    Poor Nutrition
    Toxic Overload
    Gut Damage
    Imbalanced hormones

We address all of the above underlying triggers to ensure that the person approaching us is able to prevent occurrence of fatal non communicable diseases, as well as reverse the existing conditions which are leading to the life threatening conditions like Cancer, Cardio-metabolic and Neurological diseases.

Why Functional Medicine?

  • We are in the times where we all are swamped with toxins and extremely high-stress levels.
  • These two threats are causing us to have multifold health issues. There is no way a Gut doctor can address your imbalanced neurotransmitters with prescription antacids or antibiotics!
  • What's needed is to identify the imbalance and see the cascading effect it has on your other body organs. Times have changed and the old health care model of an isolated doctor for each organ system is dwindling and for the right reasons!
  • How can you separate and give up on your responsibility of, making a person enjoy the overall health and offer organ specific management of diseases.
  • Here is the new health model, and the doctors practicing this do not offer their patients a pill for each organ-specific ailment.
  • They are rather looking at the whole body improvement and that too with the help of nutrients and not matching the pill to the ill.
  • Functional medicine is revolutionizing the chronic disease management methodology from topping up with chemical-based pills to the correction of underlying disorder!
