Functional medicine is a personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care that is grounded in the following principles: Biochemical individuality, Patient-centered medicine, and promotion of organ reserve as the means to enhance health span. 

Functional medicine is anchored by core imbalances that underlie various disease conditions. Those imbalances arise as environmental inputs such as diet, nutrients (including air and water), exercise and trauma are processed by one's body, through a unique set of genetic predispositions.

Size Does Matter!
Now that I have your attention, I am discussing the size and particle number of your LDL cholesterol. This is one of the most important numbers in your cardiac blood panel. LDL can be harmful if it is oxidized. Lipoprotein (a), C Reactive Protein and homocysteine are other indicators of inflammation.  Next time you have your blood drawn, ask to have these important markers added.
