Functional Medicine in Zurich and Switzerland
Are you tired of being told that everything is ‘normal’, only to keep experiencing a variety of symptoms? Functional Medicine allows unparallelled insight into the potential root cause of your ailments and symptoms.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine combines the best elements of conventional and alternative medicine. Focusing on a whole-body approach to facilitate optimal functioning of each of your body’s systems and organs, this process also uses cutting-edge lab testing to identify the root causes of your health problems such as:
- Micronutrients and general nutritional status
- Gut health and microbiome
- Pathogens including parasites, bacteria, yeast (Candida) and viruses
- Environmental agents such as mycotoxins, chemicals, and heavy metals
- Inflammation and immune function
- Mitochondrial health and energy production
- Stress physiology
Once any existing imbalances are identified, targeted lifestyle and nutrition interventions help optimize all your body's systems while laying the foundation for a more optimal brain and body.
What Makes Functional Medicine Different?
Essentially, functional medicine works to support your body’s natural healing systems rather than attacking disease directly - incorporating conventional medical practices in addition to nutrition and lifestyle changes. So, instead of a drug-first approach, functional medicine practitioners first seek to understand why the problem presents itself in the first place and what you can do to repair and prevent it from returning.
