"The personalization of care achievable through the functional medicine approach is the only real solution to the crisis of chronic disease facing us today. However, practicing this form of medicine is difficult, complex, and requires higher standards of decision making by clinicians. The functional medicine approach to diagnoses demands not only that we determine what disease the patient is suffering from, which can be challenging, but also what the patient's underlying physiological dysfunctions are, and their causes, which is a complex process.
