Do you want to be healthier and happier? If so, Functional Medicine may be the answer for you. Functional Medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease.
In contrast to Conventional Medicine, which focuses on treating symptoms, Functional Medicine takes a more comprehensive approach that considers the patient’s overall health and well-being.
As a result, Functional Medicine can be more effective than Conventional Medicine in treating a variety of conditions, including:
- Heart disease.
- Autoimmune diseases.

The Difference between Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine
Conventional Medicine focuses on treating sympyoms of disease. For example, if you have a headache, a conventional doctor will prescribe medication to relieve the pain.
Functional Medicine, on the other hand, focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. For example, if you have a headache, a functional doctor might investigate whether it is related to anxiety, lack of sleep, or poor diet.
The Effectiveness of Functional Medicine
Functional Medicine is more effective than Conventional Medicine for treating a variety of conditions. Why is Functional Medicine so effective? Because it focuses on addressing problemas from the root, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
