Dr Aparna Hegde is Cellf Wellness and GP Clinic’s resident functional medicine practitioner.

What is Functional Medicine?

At Cellf Solutions, we take a holistic approach to healthcare, utilising the latest researched technology and individualised care to provide our patients with the best possible outcomes. Our integrated team of health professionals takes the time to understand your unique health history and investigates the root of illness, recognising that just as it took time to get sick, it will take time to get better.

This is functional medicine.

Don’t have the time to read the whole article about Functional Medicine? Here’s a very short wrap-up on what aspects functional medicine covers:

  1. Focuses on identifying the root cause of disease or illness, rather than just treating symptoms.
  2. Takes into account the unique genetics, environment, and lifestyle factors of each patient.
  3. Utilises a personalised, integrated approach to healthcare that emphasizes natural healing methods.
  4. Utilises advanced diagnostic testing to gather information about a patient’s health status and identify potential imbalances.
  5. Emphasises prevention and optimizing overall health and wellness, rather than just treating illness or disease.

So, what exactly is functional medicine and how does it work?

Functional medicine is an approach that focuses on addressing the root causes of illness and disease, rather than just treating the symptoms. By looking at the body as a whole and taking into account a patient’s individual genetics, environment, and lifestyle factors, functional medicine practitioners work to create a personalised treatment plan that addresses the underlying imbalances that may be contributing to illness or disease.

At Cellf Solutions, we use integrated therapies with the least invasive approach prioritising the body’s innate systems for healing and wellness. Our practitioners work with patients to understand their unique needs, taking into account factors such as diet, exercise, sleep patterns, and stress levels, in order to create a treatment plan that is tailored to their body’s specific needs.

What to Expect When Working with a Functional Medicine Practitioner

If you’re new to functional medicine, you may be wondering what to expect during your first appointment with a practitioner. At Cellf Solutions, we take the time to get to know our patients and understand their unique health histories. During your initial appointment, we’ll discuss your current health concerns and work to identify any potential underlying imbalances that may be contributing to your symptoms.

Diving Deeper with Functional Testing

In some cases, we may recommend additional functional testing to gather further information about your health status. These tests may include blood work, hormone testing, and other diagnostic tools that can help us gain a better understanding of your body’s unique needs. The results of these tests are used to create a targeted treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs, with a focus on preventative health.
