At The Wellbeing Institute, we believe that it’s important not only to treat the symptoms but also to explore the underlying causes. To do this, we approach health problems from a functional medicine approach.
Functional or integrative medicine understands that chronic diseases can’t be solved by drugs or surgery. The solution requires a shift away from suppression and management of symptoms to addressing their underlying causes.
Functional medicine therefore explores the interaction of genes, food choices, toxicity, environment and lifestyle. It explores how these factors can push us toward or away from disease by turning genes on or off and attempts to understand the underlying drivers of chronic diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, obesity and dementia.
Functional Medicine aims to combine the best of conventional medicine with evidence-based complementary medicine, therapies and lifestyle interventions for the holistic treatment and prevention of disease. It enables medical practitioners and other health professionals to practice proactive, predictive, personalised medicine and empowers patients to take an active role in their own health.
To help create a holistic treatment strategy for your health concerns, we’ve brought together a number of expert practitioners.
