What is functional or integrative medicine?
Functional medicine essentially bridges the gap between allopathic pharmaceutical/surgical medical intervention and natural therapies. Achieving optimal body function is the goal of Functional medicine.
Medical Doctors, Nurses, Naturopaths, Homoeopaths, Herbalists, Acupuncturists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Nutritionists and Psychotherapists can all be practitioners of Integrative medicine.
The approach of such a practitioner is not only to manage sickness and deal with the immediate complaints but also to promote and maintain a state of wellness in their clients.
The successful combination of natural/complementary medicine with western medicine is creating a new model of healthcare worldwide. This new approach empowers the patient, encouraging them to assess their own health and wellbeing. In doing so, it helps provide preventative care and offers potentially significant cost savings.
