What is Functional Medicine? Brisbane clinic - Telehealth Australia wide
Functional Medicine is a systems biochemistry–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease, rather than just prescribing medicines and surgery to mask symptoms. In conventional medicine, symptoms may be treated at a surface level, without investigation into the many factors that may be causing your illness.
At Advanced Functional Medicine Brisbane, we conduct a thorough diagnosis with science-based consultation and testing to determine the best treatment to return you to optimal health.
Functional Medicine is highly personalized and often includes a detailed analysis of your genetic makeup. It integrates traditional medical practices with natural medicine, creating a focus on restoring balance to the body. Functional Medicine also has a strong focus on illness prevention through nutrition, diet and exercise. At our Brisbane clinic, we use the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques, prescribe combinations of herbal / botanical medicines, targeted supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs or stress management techniques.
Many serious health conditions are on the rise in our communities; more and more people are suffering unnecessarily with illnesses that limit their ability to enjoy their lives. Our clinicians successfully treat many patients with illnesses ranging in severity from mild to chronic. We are experts in a range of areas, including gut health, skin disorders, mental health issues, MTHFR, thyroid disorders, autoimmune disorders, as well as issues specific to men and women’s health.
