Functional Medicine: Finding the cause
Many people find themselves here when they have tried everything to improve their health without success. IBS, SIBO, IBD, Reflux, Stress, Perimenopause, Menopause, symptoms remain unresolved. Your diagnosis does not have to be your destiny. Functional medicine can help.
What is functional medicine?
Through the holistic lens of Functional Medicine the human body is viewed as a complex integrated system, focus placed on identifying the root cause of disease and illness. One condition may have many causes. And likewise, one cause may create many conditions. For example, chronic gastrointestinal illness can subsequently influence emotional wellbeing, sleep, hormone balance, histamine and allergic response. Transforming gastrointestinal health may begin to reverse additional health challenges. Equally, additional health challenges may play a major role in sustaining gastrointestinal illness. Many people find working with this integrative approach helps them get to the bottom of perplexing problems that may have eluded them and other clinicians for years.
Analysing the Causes
The human body is viewed as a complex and integrated system working hard to maintain balance. When the body is relatively balanced, we have vitality and health. When health is compromised, we develop symptoms that signal to us that something is out of balance. Functional medicine practitioners have an integral understanding of this systemic interplay; meaning, that one condition can influence or precipitate another.
Finding your solution is contingent upon finding what is out of balance and causing a domino effect of symptoms. We consider all of the things on the graphic as potential factors and/or contributors to your current health status.
