In simple terms, Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs in the first place.
It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that provides an alternative approach to the healthcare needs of the 21st century, where people are often so busy and stressed that they do not focus on the cause of certain diseases and symptoms they may be experiencing.
At Functional Medicine Wimbledon we can help restore health by addressing the root causes of disease, whilst supporting the unique expression of health and vitality that is particular to each individual. We practice a science-based approach that promotes optimal wellness, leveraging personal health, lifestyle and nutrition-based information that directs individualised treatment plans.
Functional medicine recognizes that the bodily systems are not separate silos but are interconnected through our biochemistry of hormones, neurotransmitters and enzymes.
