Functional medicine practitioners believe in the body’s ability to restore and heal itself. They use lab work as one tool for analysis but focus on natural cures whenever possible. These include things like diet, meditation, sleep, exercise, and supplements. Here at Brisbane Livewell Clinic, we provide the latest services in Functional Medicine with the most current biochemical tests, which can measure the levels of chemicals in your body to determine exactly which nutrients and foods will restore you to your optimum health.
Our Functional Medicine tests include some of the most advanced Food Allergy Testing and Food Intolerance Testing available.
Integrative medicine is the combination of functional medicine and traditional medical treatments together. Doctors might tell patients to take medication but also use acupuncture. Yoga or meditation might be included as part of their treatment plan.
