How well is your body? how about your mental and your spirit? Most of us don’t usually ask these questions to ourselves maybe because of our busy and fast-paced environment. We can only hear them thru our doctors or especially when we get sick. And one of the most frustrating things about getting sick is that feeling of helplessness and lack of control over what is happening to our bodies. We go to the clinic for a checkup, we are handed prescriptions for medication, only to feel better for a little while before going through the process again. Many of us have been looking for ways to better address our health issues permanently, and properly recover so we could live life to its fullness.
The good news is that a medical approach gaining much following in the United States, which have been delivering better health results, is now available in the Philippines. Functional Medicine, a science-based approach to health, turns the disease-centered focus of the traditional medical practice on its head by focusing on the whole person, his lifestyle habits, work and environment, and not the symptoms alone.
Practitioners of Functional Medicine spend time getting to know the patient’s history, and looking into the genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can affect their long-term health. By incorporating the latest developments in genetic science, the relationships between body organs, and analyzing the patient’s lifestyle and environment, Functional Medicine gives solutions to the individual’s health issues tailor-made just for them. This data and knowledge not only enables physicians and other health professionals to practice proactive, predictive, and personalized medicine, but it also empowers patient to have an active role in their own health.
