Wellness & Functional Medicine

Optimise your life for restoration and wellness by addressing the root causes of health problems.

What is Functional Medicine?

Every individual is unique—things that work for one person may not be effective for your own needs. Functional Medicine solves this by expanding the traditional focus on disease and symptomatology and exploring all factors that impact your well-being. It is an integrative, science-based healthcare methodology that emphasises restoration and prevention through nutrition, diet and exercise tailored to each individual.
At OT&P, our functional medicine practitioners are equipped to deal with complex conditions in children and adults. By understanding the complex interactions that form a patient's unique health characteristics, we create highly personalised plans for optimal wellness and healing.

The Functional Medicine Process

Within Functional Medicine, patients are treated as an active partner in improving their health and changing the outcome of disease and infection.

You will work closely with a practitioner to discuss your health goals and evaluate any underlying causes or triggers of dysfunction.

Finding the root causes of health problems

Assessments will consider multiple factors, including:

  • Environment (i.e. diet, food quality, air quality, etc.)
  • Mind-body connections (i.e. the psycho-emotional roots of disease)
  • Genetic make-up (i.e. hereditary conditions, DNA, etc.)

This allows us to understand how key processes in your body are affected, making it easier to identify any disturbances or imbalances. Based on this, we can apply appropriate interventions that substantially improve bodily functions or, in some cases, restore it completely. Sometimes, this can be done even before symptoms show.

The approach emphasises the importance of prevention and incorporates traditional medicine with effective complementary therapies from what many call ‘alternative’ medicine. Our practitioners can provide tailored counselling on lifestyle, exercise, and stress-management techniques and give recommendations on when to pursue:

By being open to various available interventions, we can customise a treatment plan that effectively changes how the body systems function and produces the most impact for each patient.
