Functional Vs. Conventional Medicine: What Are the Differences?

Functional Vs. Conventional Medicine: What Are the Differences? mirwan Choky

As more people take control over their health and well-being, functional medicine is becoming more popular. Conventional medicine has come a long way to the point where we are using gene therapy to treat diseases and various conditions. However, incidences of chronic diseases that would be treated with this type of medicine are increasing. People are turning to alternatives like functional medicine that have been proven to produce great patient outcomes.

Conventional Medicine and Functional Medicine

Conventional medicine follows the path of symptom identification and then using those symptoms to identify the illness or condition you have. A doctor will then prepare a treatment plan depending on these symptoms and the illness or condition identified. Conventional medicine, therefore, focuses on the elimination of illnesses.

Functional medicine is different in that it goes beyond looking at the symptoms, instead investigating their root cause, too. The symptoms are treated as clues that help with the identification of the underlying issues that lead to them and the illnesses they are associated with. 

Functional medicine is not only about treating illness, but also restoring health. This is why professionals who practise functional medicine Ireland are seen more as holistic-medicine practitioners, as they treat the whole person as well as any underlying issues.

Treating the Person Instead of Their Symptoms

Conventional medicine uses pharmaceuticals to treat illnesses and eliminate symptoms. However, these symptoms return in many cases if the patient discontinues their medication.

Functional medicine seeks to restore the expected functioning of the human body instead of just eliminating symptoms and illnesses. This is why in addition to the use of scientific principles, different treatments and diagnostic tests, there is the involvement of different healthcare professionals in the patient’s treatment.

Doctor-patient Collaboration

Instead of the doctor being the only authority in a patient’s diagnosis and treatment, functional medicine calls for a collaboration between the two. This helps with the development of treatment plans that eliminate or decrease present health concerns or eliminate future ones.

Collaborating with patients like this allows doctors to go much further than the patient’s symptoms, and to bring in specialists where required. It is not common for patients to work with Dublin nutritionists who lean more on ensuring the lifestyles and nutrition of patients align with good healthcare outcomes. There is also a connection between gut health and overall health, so a Dublin nutritionist is also able to help restore overall health with that in mind.

Principles of Functional Medicine

With conventional medicine, patients with similar symptoms and disease presentation are often treated the same. However, functional medicine leans more toward personalised care plans. This is done with the thinking that people have different genetic makeups, psychologies, and environmental factors that lead to disease presentation.

Functional medicine is also deeply rooted in science. It combines the science already being used in medicine with new frameworks for the evaluation of diseases such as predisposition, metabolic functions and hormone variations.

Both conventional and functional medicine have a place in our society. However, people are looking for alternatives to the former, and turning to the latter. While conventional medicine treats the symptoms and illness, functional medicine takes a broader view of the person to get to the root cause of their ailment.
