27 Aug Principles of Functional Health
Five Principles that Define Functional Health:
Functional health is the future of healthcare. It’s very different from conventional medicine in that it helps to treat chronic disease, which is a serious condition affecting around 125 million Americans.
Functional Health Treats Us As People
Instead of healing the symptoms, we heal the entire body. Functional health is so much more effective than most drugs and surgeries, which only handles the immediate problem. Functional health covers a broader aspect of the person as a whole, ensuring they are taking appropriate steps to ensure they do not relapse and suffer again in the future.
Functional Health Takes Science-Based Approach
When we focus on our body as a whole, the parts that make up the body work better individually as well. Treatments can be provided to the patient that ensure the overall body itself works to repair the injury or illness.
The Body Can Self Regulate
Ensuring the optimal functionality of the entire body encourages the body to perform better as well. This helps ensure a balance of all systems in the body.
Your Body Can Prevent Aging
Diseases caused by age are due to imbalances. These imbalances have many causes. With functional health, we can prevent these disease that occur over time.
Health Is More Than Curing Disease
Functional health is about not just treating a condition but helping the patient live better and a more fulfilling life. It’s all about improving one’s overall health so that the patient spends more time enjoying life and less time in a doctor’s office.
