An Overview – Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is a form of alternative medicine. Its proponents claim that it focuses on the “root causes” of diseases based on interactions between the environment and the gastrointestinal, endocrine, and immune systems to develop “individualised treatment plans”. Opponents have described it as pseudoscience, quackery, and at its essence a rebranding of complementary and alternative medicine. Functional medicine encompasses a number of unproven and disproven methods and treatments.
