 Why Functional Medicine
Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer with complex, chronic inflammatory diseases e.g. diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders  (thyroid, rheumatoid arthritis etc)

It is bankrupting our country.

We need a solution! Functional and Lifestyle Medicine can be part of the solution. 

Functional Medicine has emerged as a promising model to support the rise of chronic inflammatory disease, by taking a systems approach to the health and re-establish true balance and wellbeing.

The role of a functional medicine healthcare practitioner and nutritional professional can bridge the gap between the GPs office and their client.  
Meet The Leaders in Lifestyle and Functional Medicine

Learn about lifestyle and functional medicine principles in relation to heart disease and cholesterol and why chronic disease is on the rise.

Aseem Malhotra: It is estimated that prescribed medications are the third most common cause of death after heart disease and cancer. Dr Aseem Malhotra will discuss the evidence behind the choosing wisely and too much medicine joint campaign by the medical royal colleges and the BMJ, including why good doctors are struggling to practice honest medicine. He will also cover what public health interventions are needed to rapidly improve population health with specific emphasis on the impact of sugar reduction and touch on the continuing controversy over the prescription of cholesterol lowering statin medications.

Kristi Hughes, ND

Functional Medicine asks how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centred, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It relies on a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes. By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.

Prof. Sherif Sultan
The Unknown Knowns About Statins - Friend or Foe? Prof. Sherif Sultan Heart Disease is the number one killer of men and women. Vascular and endovascular surgery expert Professor Sherif Sultan , President of the International society for Vascular Surgery confirmed that cholesterol is one of the “most vital” molecules in the body and prevents infection, cancer, muscle pain , heamoroghic  stroke and other conditions in elderly people.  Many patients who develop heart disease and stroke have normal cholesterol levels and lack other indicators of risk. Prof Sultan attested that “lowering cholesterol with medications for primary cardiovascular prevention in those aged over 60 is a total waste of time and resources, whereas altering your lifestyle by incorporating exercise, Mediterranean  diet and zero refined sugar are the most important way to boost one's health and quality of life.  The statement comes from his publication in the prestigious British medical journal , where a meta analysis of research involving 70,000 people , found no link between “bad” cholesterol and the premature deaths from cardiovascular disease in patients over 60 years.  On Friday Prof Sultan will show the role of cholesterol in CVD prevention and overall health.
