Biological well-being

What is functional and nutritional medicine? 

It studies the impact of:

  • micronutrient deficits: vitamins, minerals, trace elements, essential fatty acids;
  • excess heavy metals, free radicals, saturated fats contained in food.

What role for prevention and well-being? 

It aims to maintain or restore the optimal functioning of the functions of cells, tissues and organs of the human body, using all available natural means, in particular by rebalancing nutritional intake. It aims for sustainable health, for:

  • accompany the treatment of overweight or prevent it, in order to avoid a large number of cardio-metabolic complications;
  • fight against aging and degenerative diseases;
  • prevent osteoporosis and fragile states.

How is the medical treatment carried out?

It is a holistic approach, that concerns the body as a whole.

The patient is observed through a multifaceted prism: the symptoms he expresses, the diseases he may have encountered, his lifestyle and his eating habits. A complete questionnaire makes it possible to make this inventory, which is used by a system of algorithms that explores the state of operation of the various interfaces (see opposite) and makes it possible to draw up the patient’s profile.

At the end of this first step, the patient receives:

  • a table showing its physiological state and the score of its different interfaces;
  • initial dietary or lifestyle recommendations aimed at rebalancing;
  • and if necessary, a list of biological analyzes specific to the patient’s profile, which will make it possible to refine the search for imbalances. These analyzes help to check the availability and quantity of certain molecules that have an impact on one or another of the balances (weight, digestive, mental, immune, etc.), but also on cellular aging, on the health of the skin and hair, sports or intellectual performance.

Once this table has been drawn up, it will be possible to go further with a nutritionist, who will then have all the data in hand to improve the state of health by adjusting the quantities, and the quality and methods of the patient’s nutritional habits. He can direct him to the use of food supplements when it is not possible to achieve the same result with products in their natural state. He can also indicate certain changes in lifestyle: physical activity, sports and sleep …
