Functional medicine is a holistic and integrative naturopathic system, used to determine an individuals unique biochemical profile and metabolic status. Naturopaths use a range of biochemical and other functional pathology tests to diagnose the nutritional and metabolic 'vital' reserves of an individual to determine the underlying cause of their unique presentation of symptoms and disease. These tests allow naturopaths to prepare treatments that are specifically tailored to the individual metabolic needs of each person.
