What is Functional Clinical Nutrition?
Functional Clinical Nutrition addresses the underlining causes of disease, using a system oriented approach in engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic relationship. It 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 clinical nutrition addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
