Functional Medicine is a field that focuses on restoring the function on injured or aged tissue. It revitalizes old cells and transports new cells by enhancing nutrition and circulation to the body and modifying the immune system so that cell function and survival is improved.
Before we have broken down our body functions change, are less optimal and those subtle signs are the key to correction and so that we can restore the function so that we do not become ill. Dr. Li’s analogy is that our body is like an automobile that we can continue to drive for 100k miles without a tune-up. But, it carries a risk of breaking down at any time, even on the freeway. That is why we tune up the car regularly to maintain optimal performance and to avoid suffering a sudden breakdown. The area that we practice functional medicine is to use natural non-invasive and non-side effect way to constantly eliminate symptoms and signs of functional decline. Such as fatigue, chronic pain, wear and tear, insomnia, weight gain, loss of libido, loss of vitality.
Hormone replacement therapy, conventional and unconventional, traditional and bio-identical, as well as risks assessment, has been a big part of daily practice for the last 25 years.
