Functional Medicine is designed to find the root cause of medical conditions. It has evolved through the efforts of scientists and clinicians from many fields including clinical nutrition, molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, genetics, Environmental Medicine, Conventional Medicine and many other disciplines. Functional Medicine evaluates the body as a whole, with special attention on how lifestyle, nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, stress and toxic load play on the body. Functional Medicine tests such as Organic acid test (OAT), CDSA (comprehensive stool analysis), SIBO testing, genetic testing, micronutrient testing offer additional information that conventional tests often don’t provide. They are based on scientific literature and evidence but are not often accepted by conventional Medicine.
