About The Institute for Functional Medicine
The Institute for Functional Medicine is the global leader in Functional Medicine education. The Institute offers physicians and other healthcare professionals a systems-based approach to the prevention, diagnosis, and comprehensive management of complex chronic disease.
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease and engages both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It represents an evolution in the practice of medicine and effectively addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine considers the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
