“For Better Health Outcomes”
Functional Medicine is a systems-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Modern medicine mostly uses pharmaceuticals to treat a diagnosed illness while Functional Medicine looks for the causes of illness and aims to correct those causes. Examples would be allergies and intolerances, nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle factors and environmental exposures. The approach is patient-centered and leads to an individual treatment program for better health outcomes
At OT&P we have 20 years experience using Functional Medicine to treat all age groups. For children, we aim to help each child reach their full developmental potential through optimization of diet, nutrition and metabolic functioning for better development, cognition and attention. There are many adult diseases that can be helped by a Functional Medicine approach, these include allergies, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, hormone imbalances (including HRT), memory problems and cancer
Much of the testing for Functional Medicine is carried out at overseas labs and OT&P has years of experience sending samples to the best labs in Europe, the USA and Australia. This testing looks for allergies and intolerances, nutrition, environmental toxins, gut health and hormonal balance. We always use anaesthetic cream to ensure that children do not feel any discomfort when a blood sample is taken
A Functional Medicine practitioner will often use nutritional supplements as part of the treatment plan and as the only internationally accredited medical group in Hong Kong OT&P can ensure access to the best supplements. These supplements may be given as transdermal creams, orally or sometimes intravenously
