Functional Medicine offers a powerful new system for assessment, treatment, and prevention of chronic disease. It focuses on a proactive, predictive and personalised style of medicine which empowers patients to take an active role in their own health.
Functional Medicine incorporates the latest in genetic science, systems biology, nutrition, microbiology, neurobiology, environmental medicine, and an understanding of how lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise influences the emergence and progression of disease. It involves understanding the etiology, prevention, and treatment of complex chronic disease.
Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing assessment on the biochemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.
In order to address the needs of the whole person, treatment plans at Elements Wellness include various specialists aside from your Doctor including physiotherapy, Mind Therapy, Nutrition, Fitness specialists and more. When we can address the physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual side of health, then healing can be more complete.
