The Difference Between Pharmaceuticals and Functional Medicine

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between pharmaceuticals and functional medicine? Can functional medicine really be as effective as the pharmaceuticals developed in a lab?

A lot of people are confused about the difference between the two, and the efficacy of natural treatments. Pharmaceuticals, also known as conventional or Western medicine, have been a cornerstone of healthcare for decades. These drugs are designed to treat symptoms and often provide rapid relief from various ailments. While they have undoubtedly saved lives and improved the quality of life for countless individuals, they come with their fair share of side effects and limitations.

Functional medicine, on the other hand, is an emerging approach that takes a holistic view of health. It seeks to identify the root causes of illness and focuses on prevention and overall wellness. This approach aims to treat the individual as a whole, considering genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors.

When in the hands of a skilled practitioner, functional medicine can be much more effective at treating the whole individual (and chronic illness and Lyme disease) than pharmaceuticals.
