Unlike conventional medicine, Self-healing functional medicine eliminates the causes of the disease rather than its symptoms! (Self-healing medicine and functional medicine are synonyms)
What is Functional (Self-healing) Medicine?
Apparently, functional medicine only possesses clinically proven alternative therapies. (In practice, most functional medicine techniques have no proven clinical foundation; what about all the other alternative techniques?)
- Without precise definitions of alternative medicine and functional medicine, it isn't easy to treat the claim as if functional medicine is preferable!
- Functional medicine is supposedly a medicine that treats the causes of the disease compared to conventional medicine that treats the disease's symptoms. If you look for explanations as to why it is different from alternative medicine, you will encounter difficulty because of the lack of definitions. (Philosophy of medicine)
