Functional
Medicine

Functional Medicine is a systems biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease.

It involves evaluating each symptom and clinical diagnosis within the context of a client’s genetic background, lifestyle, and environment to create a tailored treatment plan that targets the underlying cause, as opposed to treating and suppressing the symptoms using pharmaceuticals.

The Functional Medicine model evolved from the work of a selected group of specialists in a variety of fields including nutritional science, genomics, and epigenetics that focused on the fundamental cause of disease and took a unified disciplinary approach to better understand disorders that affect the entire body.

The Functional
Medicine Tree

1

Organ System Diagnosis

A holistic perspective on the various organ systems that make up
the entire body and the diseases that are presented covering
the key medical disciplines 

  • Cardiology 
  • Endocrinology 
  • Gastroenterology 
  • Hepatology 
  • Immunology 
  • Neurology 
  • Pulmonary 
  • Urology 
2

Taking into account all signs and symptoms which range
from major disability to minor discomfort 

  • Infections 
  • Autoimmune disease 
  • Allergies 
  • Weight Gain 
  • Chronic Fatigue 
  • Insomnia  
  • Anxiety 
3

Organization Systems & Critical Imbalances 

The key areas of imbalances in bodily functions that can
provoke illness and symptoms
 

  • Hormone & Neurotransmitter Imbalances 
  • Digestive & Microbiological Imbalances 
  • Immune Imbalance 
  • Inflammatory Imbalance 
  • Structural Integrity Imbalance 
4

Fundamental Physiological Processes  

Core physiological processes that take place within the body 
that are vital to overall health
 

  • Cell communication 
  • Bioenergetics 
  • Replication/Repair 
  • Protection/Defense 
  • Transport/Circulation
  • Excretion/Elimination 
5

Antecedents, Triggers and Mediators 

Genetic or acquired factors that predispose an individual to
a particular disease; Triggers are factors that provoke
symptoms and Mediators are biochemical or psychosocial factors
that contribute to ongoing pathological changes 

  • Mental, Emotional & Spiritual Influences 
  • Genetic Predisposition 
  • Experiences, Attitudes & Beliefs 
6

Lifestyle & Environmental Factors 

Personalized factors related to an individual’s lifestyle and surroundings
that impact their overall health
 

  • Sleep & Relaxation 
  • Stress 
  • Relationships 
  • Nutrition 
  • Exercise & Movement 

Drawing together these research fields, they saw the potential of applying low-risk interventions to modify the molecular and cellular systems to identify, treat and reverse the root cause of disease. Initial applications yielded impressive results in patients that had previously undergone conventional treatment without success in treating their condition. These proven successes have led to the significant growth of the field of Functional Medicine worldwide.

How Does
It Work

Functional Medicine offers a set of standardized clinical tools that are utilized by medical practitioners across the globe for consultation, diagnosis, and treatment.

These tools are used for symptom mapping and establishing a patient’s history among others to facilitate seamless cross-border consultation between practitioners. These include the Functional Medicine Matrix, Timeline, Re-new Food Plan, and GOTOIT framework.

Each of these tools helps to draw an in-depth picture of a patient’s genetic profile, family history, medical history, hormone levels, sleep patterns, stress factors, diet, allergies, emotional well-being, and environment to identify specific causes and triggers for their symptoms.

The personalized treatment plan may involve noninvasive treatments, and dietary, and lifestyle changes among others, to reduce or eliminate the symptoms that the patient is presenting and thus provide them with an improved quality of life for now and for the future.
