What is Functional, Cellular, and Regenerative Medicine

A brief overview of the difference between Functional, Cellular, and Regenerative Medicine, and why it’s needed for optimal patient care. The practice of medicine is typically focused on one system (ex: GI, Cardiac, Endocrine), and is symptom treatment oriented.

What You Will Learn

  • In functional medicine we look at the patient as a whole, taking into account all modifiable lifestyle factors to prevent and treat disease. All systems are interrelated and addressed as we uncover the root cause of a symptom or disease diagnosis.
  • Cellular medicine approaches disease by looking at what is going on in the body at a cellular level. Cell therapies are utilized to return the cell to its natural balance.
  • Regenerative medicine utilizes cells and therapies to replace, repair, and optimize damaged tissue and reverse disease.
