What You Didn’t Know About Functional Medicine Could Save Your Life

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Our current health care system is, to a large extent, governed by profit-driven conglomerates that essentially force physicians to manage huge caseloads and keep people moving through the system as quickly as possible. It’s mass-produced, assembly line, quick-fix, put-a-band-aid-on-it medicine, with little hope of creating long-term health. However, rather than simply believing anything a conventional doctor tells them, the modern healthcare consumers are becoming more informed and taking more control of their healthcare. Because of this, more and more people are seeking out functional medicine. So, why is functional medicine so awesome? There are major holes in modern medicine in […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Credit: CC0 Public Domain If we’re going to rely on COVID-19 vaccines to bring an end to the pandemic, we need to maximize their effects. But one thing that risks undermining their protectiveness is nutritional deficiency, particularly in the elderly. Older people have weaker immune responses and are known to respond less well than younger adults to many vaccines, including the seasonal influenza vaccine. This is partly down to frailty, which cannot be easily remedied, but can also be due to deficiencies in vitamins and minerals – known as micronutrients. For the immune system to fight off infection or generate […]

Many doctors of functional medicine are increasingly optimistic about a new treatment targeted at the […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
A forum of scientific advisers set up by the government warned Indian officials in early March of a new and more contagious variant of the coronavirus taking hold in the country, five scientists who are part of the forum told Reuters.
