comprehensive medical treatment with personalized patient centric care
Medical field is one of the fastest growing industry. One of the reasons is the high demand of new and more effective ways, tools, and medications for handling and cure gruesome diseases. From infectious diseases to chronic diseases and even aging.
Unfortunately, while it is very succesful at combating infectious diseases, many of the modern medical science has not been able to increase the Quality of Life of patients with chronic diseases. Therefore, a new approach has to be created to give extra care and solutions to chronic diseases, which the numbers are increasing daily.
What Is Functional Medicine?
The functional medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, functional medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.

Every peson has different set of symptoms, health history, and even genetic imprints. That is why Functional Medicine includes all of the uniqueness and follow the rule of No Single approach.
Treat The Root Cause
In Functional Medicine, we seek to identify the Root Cause of the diseases. Although we also treat the symptoms, we are focused on correcting the imbalances and working towards healing the entire system.
Prevention Is The Best Medicine
Whenever we find any subtle signs or symptoms, we will include them in the treatment simply because Functional Medicine value preventive approach since its is more effective and affordable for the patient in the long term.
While most of the medical treatment getting more and more specialized and becoming laser focused, Functional Medicine work the other way around. We analyze the whole body as one system that interconnected with each other to ensure everything is included.

The Functional care model apply Lifestyle as it's main approach. Although we also use other modalities such as drugs, every care is geared toward the least invasive and harm as possible.
