Why Functional Medicine

“Symptoms are just the tip of the iceberg, Functional Medicine opens the door to the 8O% of what’s going on below the water line”

Diana Siepmann

Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is medicine that focuses on root cause resolution as opposed to symptom suppression. It provides the framework to address the underlying causes of dis-ease, using a systems oriented approach. In functional medicine we shift from a disease-centered focus to a patient centered approach, honouring the person as a whole and as an individual.

The history of the person, the environment the person lives in, lifestyle factors and genetics are at least as important as lab work. We approach health creation in partnership, true transformation does not happen in a doctor’s office but in the person’s daily life.
