As we age, it’s natural to experience changes in our bodies and overall health. However, with the right approach, it is possible to age healthily and maintain vitality and well-being throughout our lives.
Functional medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of health issues rather than just treating symptoms. It considers an individual’s unique circumstances, including their genetics, lifestyle, and environment, to develop personalized treatment plans that help them achieve optimal health and well-being.
One of the fundamental principles of functional medicine is the importance of preventative care. By addressing potential health issues before they become problems, we can improve our chances of maintaining good health as we age. This may include making lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and managing stress, as well as working with a functional medicine practitioner to address any underlying imbalances in the body’s systems.
Functional medicine can also be a practical approach to managing chronic health conditions that may arise as we age, such as diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis. By addressing the root causes of these conditions and taking a holistic approach to care, functional medicine practitioners can help their patients manage their symptoms and improve their overall quality of life.
In addition to physical health, functional medicine also focuses on mental and emotional well-being. As we age, it’s essential to find ways to stay mentally and emotionally healthy, and a functional medicine practitioner can provide support and guidance in this area.
Overall, functional medicine can be a valuable resource for healthy aging, helping individuals to maintain vitality and well-being as they age and navigate the challenges that come with it. Taking a proactive and holistic approach to healthcare can improve our chances of living healthy, fulfilling lives.
Four factors of influence
Environment, Lifestyle, Mindset, Nutrition. All four factors, individually and collectively, produce the results of what manifests as health or illness. The environment can either lend a positive contribution or exert significant detriment. Lifestyle translates into quantifiable effects on health. Mindset produces a biological response as determined by your outlook and belief. Nutrition is the process of tuning and synchronising elements to become part of you. These are where the five causes of disease are manifested.

Rhoncus id tincidunt rhoncus, elementum tellus, diam mi velit. Viverra phasellus varius tempor.
Most of my patients are in Australia, but I consult with people around the globe; telemedicine has made it possible to reach patients wherever possible. Specific tests might not be available in every country, but I can adapt to the available tests.
I, unfortunately, don’t; some cases need to be referred when the condition presented is outside my scope. Some people are unwilling to make the required lifestyle changes or are not coachable, and I can not take them on. It’s about more than just supplements and a diet
