INTEGRATIVE FUNCTIONAL HEALTHCARE

Integrative Medicine combines treatments from conventional medicine, traditional Chinese Medicine and those from Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) for which there is some high-quality evidence of safety and effectiveness.
In a broader sense, it is healing-oriented medicine that takes into account the whole person (body, mind and spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle, and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative. The field is more than 10 years old and it is the only one of the emerging models to explicitly encompass the integration of therapeutics that, until recently, were the sole purview of complementary and alternative medicine.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE is the future of conventional medicine currently available. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up according to medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms (Dr. Mark Hyman).
There’s a huge gap between research and the way doctors practise. The gap between emerging research in basic sciences and integration into medical practice is enormous—as long as 50 years—particularly in the area of complex, chronic illness.

MAIN METHODS OF INTEGRATIVE FUNCTIONAL HEALTHCARE

NUTRIGENOMICS,DNA ANALYSIS

NUTRIGENOMICS /
DNA ANALYSIS

Since ancient times, humans have suspected that environment and food can influence health. We have also used food and plants as medicines. Modern science, especially the Human Genome Project (HGP), has highlighted the interaction between gene systems and food bioactive compounds. Nutrigenetics is the study of the individual variance of genes, while Nutrigenomics is the study of the gene-environment relationship.

The discovery of this highly-specific relationship aids the prescription of customised diets according to each individual’s genotype. It is also possible to mitigate the symptoms of existing diseases or to prevent future illnesses, especially in the area of Non-transmissible Chronic Diseases (NTCDs), which are currently considered an important world public health problem.

DETOX ELECTROLYSIS FOOTBATH

DETOX ELECTROLYSIS
FOOTBATH

This treatment modality assists with toxic load reduction, using ionized water where the H+ and OH- ions are separated to create an ionic field. The ions then attract and neutralize toxins and heavy metals of the opposite charge.

This footbath is osmosis and electrolysis based. It is a detox model helping to detoxify the body and clear the burden of heavy metals and increased acidity seen in modern lifestyle ailments and cancer. A detox footbath is also deeply relaxing.

INFUSION IV THERAPY

INFUSION IV THERAPY

To increase bioavailability, it is more efficient to introduce certain vitamins and minerals directly into the blood, particularly in severe and acute conditions such as cancer or acute infection. Very long standing problems such as so-called ‘Slow Virus Infections’ can, however, also be addressed. This is achieved through direct infusion: mega-dose Vitamin C infusion and multi-mineral drips (Vitamin B, Glutathione, Selenium, Magnesium, Zinc and more).

ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE

ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE

Modern diets have been shown to lack the diversity and density of nutrients to support long-term health. Marginal deficiencies can be identified after appropriate assessment and treated by addition of nutrients including minerals, vitamins, essential fats, amino acids and trace elements.

NUTRITIONAL MEDICINE

NUTRITIONAL MEDICINE

Diet has long been known to be a powerful influence in creating healthy human biochemistry. Today, detailed assessment of individual nutritional requirements can be carried out. Precise advice and coaching can then be provided to help restore healthy nutritional habits. This may go a long way in providing support for high-performance athletes and treating disease in patients.
