What Is Functional Nutrition?
Functional Nutrition is the advanced practice of personalized nutrition assessment, diagnosis, intervention and monitoring, with the goal of promoting optimal health and preventing diet-and lifestyle-related disease. It’s the core modality of functional medicine, an integrative approach to health. As defined by the Institute for Functional Medicine, “Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better 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 addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and evaluating the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.”
