Why Do We Need Functional Medicine?

  1. Our society’s number of complex, chronic disease has increased significantly.  They include autoimmune conditions, diabetes, inflammatory conditions, cancer, heart disease.
  2. Most of the current practice of healthcare focuses on acute care, the diagnosis and treatment of trauma and illness, such as acute infections or broken bones.
  3. These acute care practices do not allow the proper methodology for addressing many chronic complex diseases.
  4. Much of the research today does not become integrated into healthcare practices for many many years.
  5. Many doctors lack proper training in chronic disease to apply strategies such as nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle help help and prevent many diseases.
