What is Functional Medicine? Functional Medicine is non-invasive and needle less. Functional medicine is best explained by contrasting it with conventional western medicine, which is mainly concerned with morphological (form & structure) changes in the organs and tissues. In contrast, Functional Medicine endeavours to detect and recognise energetic and regulatory disturbances that in medical terminology can be called functional disturbances. Functional disturbances occur when the organism can no longer adequately compensate in response to irritants. These Functional disturbances are where no specific tissue or organ damage can yet be discovered that would explain the symptoms. A number of diagnostic methods have been developed for the diagnosis and evaluation of functional disorder’s, these include Neurological Integration System, BodyTalk, German Electro-Acupuncture Diagnosis, and the VEGA Vial tests.
It is logical then that functional disturbances demand a special therapeutic approach which is generally different to the pharmaceuticals or procedures of conventional western medicine. Instead, the proven therapeutics of Functional Medicine are the so-called “Soft Medicines” such as Neurological Integration System, BodyTalk, Bio Resonance Therapy, Homeopathy & Homotoxicology, Nutritional and Dietary Therapy and Orthomolecular medicine.
During your first appointments, a German Electro Acupuncture diagnosis and possibly a NIS evaluation is performed which can reveal factors, which can act as therapeutic blocks, rendering any treatment ineffective and possibly contributing to your disorder. These factors must be identified and rectified before any treatment program is commenced. Functional Medicine can effectively address these issues. Treatment is administered during this initial appointment.
Neurological Integration System (NIS)
Is a complete system that employs neurological processes. NIS assesses the body as an integrated being that is that all the systems that all the systems in our body are related to each other, and do not work in isolation. NIS works on the premise that your brain (not your mind) infinitely knows EXACTLY what YOUR body needs to be complete and well. We have provided a more comprehensive explanation of Nuerolink on an accompanying information sheet in this information pack.
Is a remarkable new development in natural medicine, which has developed out of the Neurological Integration System. The techniques used are much the same as in Neurolink but the protocols are far more complete and the system uses the body’s innate intelligence to determine the most appropriate treatment at that time. Results are amazing.
Emotional Freedom Technique
Is a simple fast and 100% safe way to dissolve all negative emotions. Sound to good to be true? Well it isn’t. EFT has been used successfully on thousands of people worldwide and for just about any problem or issue you can think of. EFT doesn’t just make you “feel better” it can allow you to feel HAPPY. There is a big difference. EFT has been used successfully on: Phobias, fears and anxieties, depression low self esteem, eating disorder, Post traumatic stress disorder and the list goes on.
Electro Acupucnture Diagnosis aka German Electro-Acupuncture Diagnosis aka Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll
This painless and non invasive system was developed by Dr Reinhold Voll M.D. in 1953. An electronic device is used to measure the electrical resistance at electro-acupuncture points, providing valuable information regarding the function and degree of inflammation or degeneration of specific areas of the body.
Electro Acupucture Diagnosis has developed considerably since 1953; the techniques now used also involve measuring the body’s reaction to electro-magnetic emissions from homeopathic test ampoules obtained from the VEGA Company and other sources. There are a multitude of conventional western medical diagnostic, pathological and imaging tests. Most of these will not show the presence of illness until there are advanced pathological changes. How many tests have you had that, after great expense and effort, reveal nothing? Functional Medicines diagnosis can detect serious illness patterns several years before they become clinically evident.
Bio Resonance Therapy
An Electronic device developed by West German medical doctors in 1977 enables the practitioner to manipulate the body’s electro-magnetic field to achieve homeostasis (balanced bodily function).
Every atom, molecule, cell, tissue; every organism emits electro-magnetic oscillations. Leading West German researchers have shown that changes in the health of cells could be directly influenced by the kind of oscillations they are exposed to.
Bio Resonance Therapy picks up oscillations via its input electrode. These oscillations are manipulated electronically into a form, which can stimulate the body into achieving homeostasis, and then passed through the rest of the instrument to the output probe. Remedies can be made from any bodily substance, thus a wide range of treatment possibilities exist.
Bio Resonance Therapy is now used in hospitals and clinics in over 22 countries around the world.
Homeopathy & Homotoxicology
Homeopathy is a system of medicine, which can stimulate the body’s immune and homeostasis functions. Dating back to 1810, it was devised by the German physician Dr Samuel Hahnemann. Homeopathy can stimulate bodily function in a similar way to vaccination. It uses substances from the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms, which are used in a diluted form. Homeopathy is safe, non habit forming, does not affect any medication prescribed by your doctor, is suitable for all ages, and is also very effective for animals.
Scientific Recognition; homeopathy is used by many respected medical doctors. Nearly half the doctors in France use homeopathy and there are six homeopathic hospitals in Britain. The Queen and other members of the royal family have used homeopathy for decades.
Homotoxicology can be considered the modern evolution of homeopathy and as such the bridge between homeopathy and allopathy (the usual western medical approach to treating disease with drugs). Homotoxicology was developed by Dr Hans Heinrich Reckeweg M.D. in 1952. He updated homeopathy through his study of modern biochemistry and physiopathology. A guiding principle of homotoxicology is that illness must always be considered as a reaction to external or internal toxins. Moreover, the depth of each illness is related to the immunological reactivity of the individual.
Nutritional & Dietary Therapy
Recent research has found that foods can in fact be medicines. Various programs that are not difficult and do not involving starving yourself can be used depending on your case.
The treatment of disease & wellbeing enhancement using trace elements, minerals, vitamins, amino acids, essential fatty acids, anti oxidants and herbs.
