Functional Medicine is Root Cause Medicine
Many of you know that I am on the path of certification as a functional medicine practitioner through the Institute of Functional Medicine. Functionalmedicine.org Dr Yousef Elyaman gives a nice talk on how looking for the root cause in chronic disease can lead to a return to health and in some cases no longer needing pharmaceutical drugs to treat the disease. If your doctor suggests that a pill will treat your chronic disease, without providing any further suggestions on what the root cause or lifestyle interventions, you might want to consider functional medicine. Wishing everyone optimal health. Dr Elyaman's TEDx talk.
