What is functional medicine
A systems- biology based approach that focuses on the root cause of your illness and address each symptom.
We are all born with genetic dispositions for certain diseases, like diabetes; FM focuses on the opposite-how your genetics are stimulated to develop these conditions
Much like genetics your environment (where you live, work and play) all play a role in the stimulation of certain disease.
