Human Nutrition: Clinical Applications in a Functional Medicine Framework
Christopher Browne, DC, MS
Functional medicine is a powerful movement in health care that focuses on revealing the root causes of illness and restoring health and vitality through the application of cutting-edge science within a holistic framework. It helps clinicians look beyond the diagnosis and see the individual needs of their patients, empowering both doctor and patient to create meaningful change using minimally invasive modalities such as clinical nutrition, lifestyle medicine and mind-body therapeutics whenever possible. In chiropractic practice, applying the functional medicine model can unlock each doctor’s potential to help patients achieve lasting wellness and successfully overcome chronic, complex illness.
