- Functional Medicine approach to chronic conditions, testing and nutraceutical supplements
Dr Alina uses a functional medicine for some chronic conditions because it truly addresses the ‘why’ of a disease or constellation of symptoms, and it offers an organized way to decipher the clues that are bodies are giving us in order to restore us back to wholeness and wellness. It takes into account the unique way in which our individual biochemical and genetic background interacts with absolutely everything we are exposed to on a daily basis—the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the environmental toxins we absorb, the thoughts and emotion we experience and the people around you.
