So what is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a personalized approach using Health Screening tools to help recognise how different signs and symptoms may relate to your current state of health. Through these tests, our health practitioners can learn a great deal about the state of your overall health and well-being.
Our in-house screening tools include a small finger prick, where one or two drops of blood are taken and examined. The test picks up markers such as inflammation, oxidative stress or mineral deficiencies, to name a few. Everything from mineral imbalances and pH levels to potential toxicity and parasites is taken into consideration.
Are you at risk?
Research estimates that 70-90% of the risk of Chronic Diseases can be attributed to Lifestyle. “Overweight and obesity are major risk factors for several chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer.” – The World Health Organization. This means that what you eat, how you exercise and how much stress you have in your life, may increase your risk of Chronic Disease.
