MONDAY TALKS on Functional Medicine

Have you heard about Functional Medicine yet? Do you know why most of the web searches about chronic disease (autoimmune disease, rheumatic spectrum disorders, irritable bowel and other gut related issues, etc.) involve terms like this or Functional Nutrition? Because Functional Medicine practitioners focus on treating the patient instead and digging up the root cause of their health problems.

In our series of educational events for patients and interested people we are trying to show how your diet and lifestyle as well as environmental factors are part of your picture. We are confident to trigger some thought and hopefully motivate to make a sustainable change wi you, showing you the way to better health. Please find below a list of topics we intend to cover in the first quarter this year.

At all presentations a healthcare professional from our practice will be present and very happy to engage in conversation and help answering the questions you might have.
