Functional Medicine Analysis
Our symptoms and our current state of health are an accumulation of actions, events, and environmental influences that have taken place over the course of our entire lives. Events in our distant past, even our childhood years, may provide clues to solving the puzzle and identifying the root cause. Even events that occurred at or before birth, influenced by your mother’s health years before you were born, may play a role.
Documenting the actions, events, and environmental influences that have occurred in your life allows for the construction of a “Big Picture” view of how your body got to where it is today. It opens up a conversation between you and your practitioner so that you can work together to look for patterns, and find correlations. A Functional Medicine Report is the starting point to create personalised plan to get you back to the health you want.
A Functional Medicine Analysis enables you and your practitioner to see how your symptoms connect, how they reflect issues within broader physiological systems, and how two patients with the same diagnosis might be served by entirely different treatments.
Some of the most useful questions in a patient presenting with complex medical problems are:
How did this all start?
When did you last feel well?
What was going on in your life in the year before you got sick?
A Functional Medicine Analysis is a valuable tool for organizing your history and identifying antecedents and triggers of your current symptoms.
