Functional Medicine is a term being thrown around a lot these days, but what does it Mean?
It means restoring health in the body through a system of eliminating toxic load to the body and improving the health of each system in a specific set of ways. This restoration is individualized to see which system you need the most tailored help with first. The systems in the body are:
- Hepatic or Liver
- The Intestinal System/Gut

Often times, we start with the gut. This is because it has been studied for some time and we know that issues in the gut lead to issues in every system. The health of the gut plays a direct role in tissue repair, Healing times, Hormone balance, Weight gain or loss, Sleep, Toxic Load and Brain Function. I am sure you may have heard the term "The Gut-Brain". It is thrown out a lot, but has deeper meaning. The Guts link to brain chemistry is now undeniable. The research even finds that specific diets can prevent or slow the process of Alzheimer's disease and cancer. If the gut is unhealthy, you can not absorb the right nutrients for the rest of the body. This can lead to Starvation type symptoms, even in obese populations. Usually, this means dietary changes that most people don't want to follow on with. This is not for the faint of heart, but for those who want to see true health with in the next 18 months.
