Every cell in our body is part of a system. Our digestive system breaks down food into tiny particles which are used to provide the raw materials for many functions in the body. Food provides each cell with nutrients for producing energy, repairing and replacing old cells with new, making hormones and other chemicals for communication within the body. Our body systems (nervous, endocrine, digestive, muscular, and others) communicate with each other to help us to function. When we experience imbalance in one system, this will affect the others.
Functional medicine assesses how the different systems are performing and identifies any area of weakness. This analysis is done before and during the consultation using questionnaires and/or diagnostic testing if required. A nutrition plan is created to address problem areas and help restore balance in the body.
