Cutting-edge Medical Services
Functional Medicine is a medical specialty that began in the United States in 1993.
Based on award-winning research projects that go on for more than 20 years, it applies in its daily practice findings and results of sciences such as Molecular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry and Biotechnology. These sciences have managed to overcome the classic medical approach and to “see” inside the cell.
Functional Medicine encompasses the unique ability of man for self-healing and health self-regulation, through a cellular approach. It examines, among other things, the biochemistry of the human body at a cellular level, in order to restore possible defficiencies or surpluses (imbalances) of micronutrients, but also the accumulation of toxicity.
Functional Medicine is based on Nobel Prize award knowledge
In 2009 the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to 3 scientists who solved a very big problem in biology. “How chromosomes can replicate during cell division and can be protected against decay and destruction.”The solution lies at the end of chromosomes, in Telomeres and in the enzyme that forms them, Telomerase.
The 2011 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to with Bruce A. Beutler and Jules A. Hoffmann “for their discoveries about the activation of innate immunity” and, on Ralph M. Steinman “for the discovery of dendritic cells and their role in adaptive immunity “.
The 2012 Nobel Prize in Medicine was jointly awarded to Sir John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka for the discovery that “when cells mature they can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent.”
The 2017 Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology was awarded to Jeffrey Hall, Michael Rosbas and Michael Young for their discoveries in molecular mechanisms that control the circadian rhythm, that is, the biological clock of plants and animals.
