Chronic illnesses have reached epidemic proportions and conventional ‘solutions’ simply offer medications to mask symptoms.
Functional Medicine (FM) offers a different approach to chronic illness, one that works on identifying the root causes. FM is founded in systems biology, i.e. identifying the systems involved in the manifestation of symptoms and offering solutions which target the system dysfunction (or system communication issues).
But Functional Medicine can – and should – offer more than this. FM offers Preventative Solutions.
Because FM is built on systems biology, the diagnostics and education gained whilst thinking in a systems-based way can be applied to optimisation and care ahead of illnesses developing.
By taking care of your Health today, ill Health can be prevented – and at Aletheia we guide you in the best ways to do that, for you.
Integrative Medicine is a term which reflects a respect for the fact that Healthcare is not a ‘one size fits all’. Our Network includes all modalities, including conventional doctors who support our work using prescription pharmaceuticals, surgeries and treatments where appropriate. At Aletheia we pride ourselves on our knowledge and integration of conventional medicine with FM approaches, so that we can are a source of authoritative guidance for all of our patients.
In essence, at Aletheia we help you to prevent development of lifestyle-related disease or illness, resolve such illnesses if present, support those with non-lifestyle-related conditions – and we work with any modalities need to support each individual’s Ultimate Health.
