Principles of Functional medicine

Principles of Functional medicine

Functional medicine in St. Petersburg FL is relatively a new term used in medicine and it is totally different from conventional medicine and standard model of treatment. If you want to understand the meaning of functional medicine, you should contrast it to conventional medicine.

Normally, a doctor uses hormones and drugs as therapeutic tools in dealing with diseases and dysfunctions. For different conditions like elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and low thyroids, the standard model is the same. Your general practitioner may decide treating you or may choose referring you to a specialist. The training of standard model of treatment involves diagnosing the disease and matching it to a certain type of drug. This standard care is designed to cure well emergencies, infection, trauma and disease. However, it fails when it comes to curing chronic diseases.

Chronic diseases like neurological, metabolic, hormonal, digestive and allergic problems that affect many people on daily basis are being treated using functional medicines.

Functional medicine is based on the following principle:  

  • All people are different based on their biochemicals and genetics. It means that healthcare should be personalized in treating an individual, but not a disease. It enhances the natural healing mechanism of the body and it does not attack a disease directly.

  • Functional medicine is based on the science where new research has shown that what happens with people is connected within a complicated network or a web of many relationships. Being aware of these relationships allows the doctors to see deeper into how the body functions.

  • The body knows itself and it has the ability of self regulating. This expresses itself in the way where there is a dynamic balance for the entire body system.

  • The body is capable of healing and it can prevent all diseases that are caused by aging.

  • Health should not be considered as an absence of a disease but the state of high level of vitality.
