Functional Medicine is increasingly becoming a reference point for many doctors, nutritionist and health practitioners. Originally growing from naturopathy, Functional Medicine is also nurtured by current research in areas such as psychoneuroimmunology. It is science-based, holistic and focuses on the individuality of each patient. Its goals are to prevent and manage health complex issues and chronic disease. Through nutrition, lifestyle management and behavioural change, Functional Medicine is at the centre of nutritional therapy, as we know it today.
