What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a holistic medicine approach that focuses on investigating the root causes of diseases and correcting these causes. It also includes preventive medicine practices applied to make healthy life sustainable. Focusing on root causes provides a significant improvement in the quality and comfort of life, especially in chronic diseases.

The functional medicine approach is a scientific and evidence-based approach. It stands out with its individuality, handling the patient as a whole and its permanent effect.


What is not functional medicine?

Functional medicine is not an alternative approach to classical medicine; On the contrary, it is a supportive approach. As a matter of fact, while classical medicine adopts an approach specific to a disease, organ or system, functional medicine makes it possible to look at it from a broader perspective by dealing with the subject in a much more comprehensive way.

In conclusion, functional medicine: patient-centered, not disease-focused; system-oriented, not organ-oriented; the treatment of the diagnosis is not focused on the treatment of the root cause.

What is the mechanism of functional medicine?

Functional medicine; it also uses known medical scientific data such as biochemistry, physiology, genetics, biology, microbiology and toxicology, but considers these data with a holistic perspective. The most important points that distinguish functional medicine from the classical medicine approach; It is based on the patient, not the disease, focusing on the triggering factors that underlie the diseases rather than diagnosing the disease, and accepting the patient as a whole and aiming to heal the whole physiologically, mentally and spiritually instead of a specific disease.

In functional medicine, the person is evaluated as a whole. In this direction, genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related factors that affect the disease-health status of the person are taken into consideration.

In the center of the functional medicine approach, the immune system is located in the axis of the intestines, whose importance has increased in recent years with the discovery of nutrition, lifestyle, environmental factors and microbiota.

Functional medicine requires teamwork. The indispensable parts of this team are, of course, a functional medicine physician, a functional medicine dietitian and the patient in active cooperation. Nutrition programs, like treatment programs, are planned individually in line with the functional medicine perspective.

The concept of “idiopathic” (the cause of which is unknown), which is often used in classical medicine, is not used in functional medicine.
