Functional Nutritional Medicine
A Functional Nutritional Medicine Practitioner takes an individualised, patient-centred, science-based approach which empowers them to work together with their patients to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.
Through a deep understanding of each patient’s genetic and biochemical function as well as their lifestyle, a personalised treatment plan can be formulated.
One condition may have many different causes and likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. Therefore, by addressing the root cause of the condition rather than the symptoms, functional nutritional medicine practitioners may identify the underlying complexity of disease.
This enables them to target treatment towards the specific manifestations of disease, assisting patients to reach their optimal health.
