What is Functional Medicine

Finding the root cause

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. 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 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 looking at 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.

Focus on "Leaky Gut"


You may have heard about “leaky gut” and wondered what’s all the talk about...

Under normal, healthy conditions the lining of the gut is selectively permeable and impermeable to certain bacterial components and proteins among other gut related matter. 

Well, pay attention because studies show that a leaky gut is an absolute predisposition to reactions that activate the production of inflammatory chemicals in the body. Under normal, healthy conditions the lining of the gut is selectively permeable and impermeable to certain bacterial components and proteins among other gut related matter.  

When the integrity of the gut is challenged through various means, such as stress, diet, or toxins the gut becomes permeable and impermeable to the wrong matter and inflammation occurs. Once inflammation occurs, a plethora of human degenerative conditions can occur. Diseases including Multiple Sclerosis, cancer, coronary artery disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and much more can be triggered from a leaky gut and inflammation. 

Maintaining gut wall integrity and reducing inflammation in the body are key to discovering and healing the root cause of each patients we see at Spatologie.
