What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a personalized approach for patients, dealing with the primary prevention and underlying causes of chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care.

Says Dr Julia Piper,

“This was one of the most valuable medical education courses I have taken in the last 10 years. I found the course to be highly relevant to my clinical practice, particularly in dealing with the chronic diseases which we face on a daily basis in primary health care. By weeks end, I have learned a thoughtful approach that takes into account the complexity of factors which influence health and disease in modern times, and learned a systematic method to address these issues”
