Conventional Medicine is important for acute diseases. If you have a raging infection or a heart attack, you need medications right? If not, you can probably die.
In Functional Medicine, however, we go back and look at the root causes of why you developed the infection or you had a heart attack. In other words, personalized medicine is about how to address upstream and also prevent disease progression.
And one of the most important things is using Food as Medicine and modifying other lifestyle factors.
Easy? Nothing’s easy in this world but if you put your heart into it, and you know so that you can live a more healthier and purposeful life, why not?
