Traditional Western Medicine or Allopathic Medicine sees the individual primarily as individualized organ systems: heart, lungs, kidneys, digestive tract, etc. It assigns diseases to these systems based on a set of symptoms, signs, abnormal labs and tissue pathology. Once the diagnosis is given to the diseased organ system, pharmacologic or surgical treatment is initiated.
Regenerative Medicine is based on the body’s ability to restore itself. At the center of this ability is the stem cell. Stem cells are cells that have the ability to differentiate or mature into cells that can replace damaged or injured cells. Metabolic and Functional Medicine’s approach to this is accomplished by providing you the optimum nutrients and eliminating potential toxins that can disrupt your stem cell function and longevity.
