Functional medicine is a personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention
and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care that is
grounded in the following principles: Biochemical individuality, Patient-centered medicine, and promotion of
organ reserve as the means to enhance health span.
Functional medicine is anchored by core imbalances that underlie various disease conditions. Those imbalances arise
as environmental inputs such as diet, nutrients (including air and water), exercise and trauma are processed by one's body,
through a unique set of genetic predispositions.
