FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE – A NEW HEALTHCARE APPROACH AVAILABLE AT AMC TBILISI

Dear Friends,

 

We are happy to announce the launch of Functional Medicine (or Integrative Care) at AMC Tbilisi.

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying root causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Using a holistic concept, it views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. Functional medicine focuses on long-term health solutions, not quick prescription drug fixes.

 

Why Do we need Functional Medicine?

 

Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from complex and chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune conditions. Functional Medicine examines the causes of these diseases, seeking chronic wellness, not illness. It explores our diet and nutrient absorption, our vast microbiome, and the gut-brain connection.

 

Who Should Consider the Functional Medicine?

 

Certain conditions are especially well-suited to a Functional Care approach, including the following:

•    Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
•    Digestive problems
•    Autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto thyroiditis)
•    Hormonal imbalances (PMS, menopause)
•    Diabetes
•    Obesity, and many others

 

Dr. Elena Steinheim is Your Functional Medicine Doctor. Dr. Steinheim first obtained her Medical Degree from J.W. Goethe University, in Frankfurt, Germany. She is certified as a Functional Medicine Practitioner with over 15 years of physician experience. She uses functional medicine to find answers to the cause of your illness and the nutritional and biochemical imbalances that may be making you feel ill.

 

Functional medicine is personalized medicine that explores root causes of disease instead of treating symptoms. With specific blood tests and diagnostics, Dr. Steinheim will search for underlying triggers that are contributing to your illness and tailor intervention to your specific needs as an individual, to restore balance and health.

We’re currently offering PCR testing to anyone interested either in the clinic or in the comfort of your home/hotel.

If you require numerous employees to be tested on the same day for an upcoming business trip, we can organise an onsite workplace testing session.
