The Natural Roots of Functional Medicine

This is a very exciting time for medicine. We are witnessing the creation of a new approach to the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. It is an omnigenic approach powered by systems biology to assembling patient-specific information about how genes and lifestyle interact. When combined with other new technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning informatics, the result will be the development of a precision form of personalized lifestyle medicine applied to cardiovascular disease.

This advancement will be a gateway for change throughout the entire segment of the health care system that is focused on the many complex chronic conditions affecting our world population.
