We all know how important health is for each one of us since it is something that makes us functional the way we should and also, it is the one that we nurture in our body so that we can do the things we want and we need to do every single day. Being healthy means that you are protected from any sorts of diseases and illness that may come your way, being healthy means that you can do whatever you want to do, being healthy means you are not bound from any health related situations and being healthy means you are in good shape, body, mind, heart and spirit. Rather than being sickly, not lively and not having any life and zest, you will be filled with a never ending source of energy, you will have a positive outlook in life. Without proper healthcare measures and maintenance, we are bound to suffer from various kinds of diseases and iillnesses as we are prone to virus and bacterias that are harmful to our body. Surely, there are so many of you here who have any idea with the current situation in the world of healthcare as you, perhaps, have been watching news on TV, listening to radio broadcasts or perhaps, you are reading your local newspaper. In a study that was published in the Journal of Medicine it shows that the US ranks 1st in healthcare spending, but only ranks 37th overall in healthy individuals.
As we are doing our research when it comes to healthcare measures and maintenance as our way of accumulating knowledge that we can share as the time comes, we were able to discover a new and upcoming practice and this practice is called as Functional Medicine. In this present day and time that we live in, functional medicine continues to rise among other methods and practices of treatment. Speaking of functional medicines, we are actually referring to a term that is commonly used to describe a method or a practice that uses the same exam procedure as that of medicine such as CT scan, MRI scans and bloodwork as well and rather than giving the patient medicine, what they tend do is that they use natural substances that do not have any side effects at all. That is not the only thing at all since we have other things that you have to be aware of such as the fact that functional medicine, patients are encouraged not only to have their diet change, they are encouraged as well to take supplements that will support the areas of your body that are not working properly, to eradicate certain foods that will make your system irritated and also, to chance your lifestyle as well.
