A holistic, patient-focused, science-based, collaborative approach to health.
Functional medicine is a personalised and integrative approach to healthcare which involves understanding the
prevention, management and root causes of complex chronic diseases. The ultimate goal is to heal disease and
promote a healthy life. A healthy life is not defined as simply an absence of disease, but rather a positive vitality filled with energy, joy, gratitude and balance. The Functional Medicine model evolved from the insights and perspectives of a group of influential scientific leaders who realised the importance of a personalised approach to disease causes based on the evolving research in nutritional science, genomics, and epigenetics.

The underlying root cause is usually not sought.
The functional medicine model, conversely, is specifically suited to the management of chronic disease, because it addresses its root causes, which derive from lifestyle choices, environmental exposures, and genetic influences.
