What is Functional Medicine? Melbourne clinic - Telehealth Australia wide
Integrative Medicine and Functional Medicine focus on supporting you as a whole person. Rather than simply making a diagnosis and then determining which drugs or surgery will best treat your condition, Functional Medicine practitioners examine your history and biochemistry and ask why you are unwell.
At Advanced Functional Medicine Melbourne, we embrace a new way of thinking about disease that gets to the root cause. We don’t focus as much on symptoms, rather we focus on the question of why you have those symptoms. We treat many patients who come to us with a variety of long-standing health issues, frustrated by them not being resolved through conventional medicine.
As Functional Medicine practitioners, we support the healing process by viewing health and illness as part of a cycle in which all components of the human biological system interact dynamically with the environment. We incorporate modalities such as nutrigenomics, which looks at an individual’s interaction between nutrients and their genes, herbal medicine and advanced biochemistry to optimize function. This process helps to seek and identify genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors that may shift a person’s health from illness to well-being.
Our clinic in Melbourne treats a wide range of conditions that are becoming more prevalent in our society, including autoimmune disorders, gut health issues, thyroid disorders, skin conditions, MTHFR, allergies and mental health disorders.
