A detailed discussion from the Canadian Covid Care Alliance
"Virtually every complex, chronic disease is preceded by long-term disturbances in functionality. Most of these disturbances can be addressed; some can be completely restored to optimum function, and others can be substantially improved."
Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based health care approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.
Functional Medicine focuses on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs, and the genetic predispositions that influence health and disease so that interventions are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.
