Functional medicine deals with the body systems and how they work together. It seeks to restore optimum synergy by using a variety of techniques, including lymphatic acupressure and fully maximising treatments with specific nutritional support. It can be profoundly effective from the first session.
A diagnosis can be the result of more than one cause. For example, depression can be caused by many different factors, including inflammation.

The precise manifestation of each cause depends on the individual's genes, environment and lifestyle and the treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond system supression.
