What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine has become increasingly popular in the past few years. It is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of illness. It takes into account the whole person, including lifestyle, environment, and genetic factors, to identify and treat the underlying causes of disease.

Causes of Illness:

1. Poor Diet: Eating processed foods high in sugar, fat, and salt can lead to chronic inflammation and an increased risk for developing chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. 

2. Stress: Stress can lead to hormonal imbalances that can cause physical symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, and digestive issues. 

3. Environmental Toxins: Exposure to environmental toxins such as air pollution or chemicals in food can cause inflammation and disrupt normal body processes. 

4. Lack of Exercise: Not getting enough physical activity can lead to weight gain, poor circulation, and weakened muscles which can contribute to chronic health conditions such as obesity and diabetes. 

5. Genetics: Certain genetic mutations or predispositions may increase the risk for certain diseases or conditions.

Symptoms of Illness:

1. Fatigue: Feeling tired or exhausted even after getting enough sleep may be a sign of an underlying health condition or nutritional deficiency. 

2. Pain: Pain is a common symptom of many illnesses including arthritis, fibromyalgia, cancer, and autoimmune diseases. 

3. Digestive Issues: Abdominal pain, bloating, constipation or diarrhea may be signs of digestive issues such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or food sensitivities/allergies. 

4. Skin Issues: Skin problems such as acne or eczema may be caused by allergies or hormonal imbalances due to stress or poor diet choices. 

5. Mood Changes: Feeling anxious or depressed may be caused by hormonal imbalances due to stress or nutritional deficiencies such as low levels of vitamin B12 or omega-3 fatty acids.
