Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease and treats the systems of the
body as an entire entity rather than treating an isolated set of symptoms. The foundations of
good heath are the focus of nutritional therapy: nutrient dense whole food diet, digestion, blood
sugar handling, fatty acids, minerals and hydration. By focusing on the foundations, functional
medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
It is essential to implement lifestyle strategies that support the Foundations of Good Health to live a long and vibrant life: nutrient dense whole food diet, proper hydration, movement and exercise, adequate sleep, stress reduction and proper supplementation.
