The primary driver of chronic disease is the interaction among genes, activities of daily living (lifestyle), and the environment. Functional medicine is an approach to treating health conditions and preventing disease by finding the root cause of your health issues.
However, instead of stamping you with a diagnosis and only treating your symptoms, functional medicine finds out WHY you have the diagnosis. By reversing the specific dysfunctions that have contributed to the disease state, one can restore a state of health.
Clinical dieticians are an important part of our practice. Working with the Doctors they help design and lead nutritional programs to improve or maintain the health of patients. These programs may be short-term, such as to ensure that proper nutrition is delivered if there is a particular needed or long term when we are adjusting overall lifestyle.
At Ocean Ki Health, we carry out detailed functional tests to understand the patients’ nutritional needs. Based on the results of these tests, and the advice from the doctors, the clinical dietitian creates personalised programmes to help clients lose weight, gain muscles, or achieve optimal health.
