What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a relatively new form of medicine. Here at The Which Doctor, we endeavour to give you the best treatment outcomes possible and therefore combine a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach with Functional Medicine.
Functional Medicine looks at treating the root cause of disease and uses a holistic treatment approach that encompasses the lifestyle of the client into the treatment plan. Instead of the traditional disease-centred focus of western medicine, Functional Medicine uses a client orientated approach that treats the whole person, not a specific symptom.
Via extensive questioning a combination of genetic, environmental, lifestyle and biological information is determined and then used to identify and treat the underlying problem that is causing chronic disease. At The Which Doctor this means that as well as being prescribed Chinese Herbal Medicine, you may be prescribed supplements containing essential vitamins or minerals that your body is lacking.
