Functional Medicine

Get Clarity. Be Supported. See Results.

BetterCells believes in a holistic approach to healthcare and medicine – such as that of Functional Medicine. Rather than alleviating symptoms by relying solely on medications, Functional Medicine combines a systemic approach combined with the latest medical research identify the biochemical imbalances and get to the root causes of disease in your body.

We can compare this approach to a tree, with conventional medicine focusing on a single yellowing leaf compared to Functional Medicine allowing you to see the entire tree: from the leaves at the very top, to the branches they sprout from, and the trunk which supports them all the way down to the roots at its foundation. Practitioners in Functional Medicine approach your health like the tree, completely reviewing your genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors to uncover the cause of your symptoms. This is a more complete way to view disease, health, and wellbeing; and allows us to consider all aspects and their complex interactions.

At BetterCells our aim is to break down the barriers to good health with access to meaningful health tests, easy to understand results, and support from Functional Medicine Practitioners to empower you on your journey towards better health. We want to help you understand how and why disease occurs and how to gain back your wellbeing. We use the latest medical research with the systemic approach of Functional Medicine to identify what’s holding you back from becoming your healthiest version.

The 5 Principles of Functional Medicine.

  1. Functional Medicine views each person as completely unique; we have different genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors. Functional Medicine Doctors believe in treating the individual instead of focusing solely on eradicating the disease.
  2. Medicine should be based on science, using the latest research and studies to provide you with the best care. Every reaction in your body is connected to something else in a complicated network of relationships, and this understanding allows Practitioners to see deep into the functioning of the body.
  3. Your body is intelligent and can self-regulate, which expresses itself through a dynamic balance of all your body systems.
  4. Your body has the ability to heal and prevent nearly all the diseases of ageing. It supports the normal healing mechanisms of the body, naturally, rather than attacking disease directly.
  5. Health is not just the absence of disease, but a state of immense vitality.
