Functional medicine

  1. 1. Functional Medicine THE 21ST CENTURY MEDICINE Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 1
  2. 2. Conventional Medicine involves a system of diagnosis followed by an algorithmic approach to a treatment Algorithm : “a finite set of well defined instructions for accomplishing some task which, given an initial state, will result in a corresponding recognizable end state.” Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 2
  3. 3. Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 3
  4. 4. Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 4
  5. 5. Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 5
  6. 6. … is a science-based, healthcare approach that assesses and treats underlying causes of illness through individually tailored therapies to restore health and improve function Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 6
  7. 7. … is a science-based system of personalized medicine that focuses on the root causes of chronic illness and the correction of these underlying dysfunctions rather than treating symptoms Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 7
  8. 8. 7 PRINCIPLES OF FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE Scientific research Physiology Mechanisms Interactions Case Studies 1. Science based medicine that connects the emerging research base to clinical practise Pharmaceutical Placebo controlled – double blind Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 8
  9. 9. 7 PRINCIPLES OF FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE Genetics NOT your destiny. Gene expression is variable and able to be manipulated. Genes determine our responses to specific environmental factors 1. Science based medicine that connects the emerging research base to clinical practise 2. Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 9
  10. 10. 7 PRINCIPLES OF FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE Environment Chemical, spiritual and structural elements combine to influence your genetic expression. Manipulation of your environment can change the expression of your genes 1. Science based medicine that connects the emerging research base to clinical practise 2. Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 10
  11. 11. STRESS POLLUTION ENVIRONMENT EATING HABIT ALCOHOL - SMOKING OTHER LIFESTYLES… Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 11
  12. 12. STRESS ENVIRONMENT Environment “… we have been able to identify modifiable behavioral factors, including specific aspects of diet, overweight, inactivity, and smoking that account for over 70% of Stroke and Colon Cancer, over 80% of CHD, and over 90% of Adult-onset Diabetes” Willet, WC Science, 2002:296. 659-97 Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 12
  13. 13. 7 PRINCIPLES OF FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE 1. Science based medicine that connects the emerging research base to clinical practise 2. Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness 3. Patient centered care rather than disease focused Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 13
  14. 14. 7 PRINCIPLES OF FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE 1. Science based medicine that connects the emerging research base to clinical practise 2. Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness 3. Patient centered care rather than disease focused 4. Dynamic balance of Internal and External Factors 5. Weblike interconnetions of physiological processes Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 14
  15. 15. Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 15
  16. 16. 7 PRINCIPLES OF FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE 6. Promotion of organ reserve – healthspan… not just lifespan 7. Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 16
  17. 17. ICEBERG ANALOGY LIFESTYLE GENETICS ENVIRONMENT The combinations of genetics, environmental inputs and lifestyle behaviors are underlying factors that contribute to chronic symptoms and illness Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 17
  18. 18. ILLNESS SYMPTOMS LIFESTYLE GENETICS ENVIRONMENT ICEBERG ANALOGY The combinations of genetics, environmental inputs and lifestyle behaviors are underlying factors that CONTRIBUTE TO CHRONIC SYMPTOMS AND ILLNESS Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 18

Autoimmune Diseases Gastrointestinal Disease Kidney & Bladder Disease Musculoskeletal Disease Mental Illness Cancers Heart & Lung Disease Insulin Resistance & Diabetes Gallbladder & Liver Disease Neurological Disease Thyroid Disease Stroke SYMPTOMS LIFESTYLE GENETICS ENVIRONMENT ICEBERG ANALOGY The combinations of genetics, environmental inputs and lifestyle behaviors are underlying factors THAT OVERTIME DEVELOP INTO CHRONIC DISEASE Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 20
  21. 21. CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE DOCTORS treat symptoms with medications SYMPTOMS LIFESTYLE FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE DOCTORS treat the underlying causes GENETICS ENVIRONMENT CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE DOCTORS typically prescribe mediations for symptoms – whereas FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE DOCTORS addresses the underlying factors of dysfunction and disease and then treat the whole Patient Iwan HH - FORTIS GLOBAL PHARMA 21
