Functional medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

The functional medicine approach is a patient-centered, evidence-based approach that addresses the underlying causes of disease and promotes optimal wellness. It requires a close co-operation between practitioner and patient to understand each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct a personalized treatment programme that leads to improved patient outcomes.

By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, functional medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual. Dr Goldberg completed a training in  Functional medicine in 2012.
