Functional medicine isn’t just for illness. It can help improve mental and physical performance.
Functional medicine techniques have a role to play in helping individuals improve their performance, whether as part of their professional or personal ambitions. By using functional and genetic testing to gain a deeper understanding of an individual’s biochemical make up and how their metabolic pathways work most effectively, elements of diet, training and supplementation can be tailored to the individual allowing them to optimise their performance. Functional medicine can help with both physical performance, making the body healthier and more responsive to nutrition and training. And with mental performance, helping the body-brain system work more effectively and improving focus, mindfulness and performance.
