FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION

New to Functional Nutrition?

Functional Nutrition ( FN), sometimes referred to as Functional Medicine (FM), is a system of healthcare that is based upon the premise that our bodies are designed to be healthy. The cells of our body are bombarded daily by a myriad of environmental factors and to that extent, disease is an adaptive state, often taking years to develop before symptoms appear.
Chronic health problems can be treated by either focusing on the symptoms, or by looking deeper to seek out, understand, and address the origins and causes of declining health. Traditional medicine focuses on the symptoms of disease and analyzes these symptoms to arrive at either a diagnosis of a disease or in some cases classification of the symptoms into a syndrome. Treatment is usually then provided through medication designed to change or control the symptoms.

What Are The Symptoms Of Crohn’s Disease?

Gut health is not something most people really enjoy talking about.  At one point, the digestive system was considered a relatively simple body system.
