1. The Pillars of Health
The Pillars of Health is a composite of the various interconnected facets of our health. Dr. Dominique takes into account all of the various aspects of your health because they cannot be separated.
2. Functional Medicine as an integrative approach to health
Functional Medicine describes a new focus, one to correct physiological function versus only chasing the obliteration of symptoms. For example correcting a blood sugar issue would physiologically correct the lipids (Cholesterol Etch) imbalance, instead of only controlling cholesterol with medication without correcting the core of cholesterol issues which could be sugar metabolism in majority of patients.
As in the health pillars interconnected facets, Functional Medicine recognizes the web of the body’s interrelated functions. To assess a cholesterol problem without understanding the sugar metabolism or instigating a brain function without looking into the gut health would be implausible. All is in play with each other and this approach requires a thorough knowledge of its physiology.
