The Functional Medicine Tree is an explanatory tool that helps clinicians communicate with other clinicians, as well as patients, about the key differences between Functional Medicine and conventional medicine. The leaves and branches represent symptoms and diseases, which conventional medicine focuses on to arrive at a named diagnosis, with each specialty isolated on its own branch. Functional Medicine instead focuses on the foundations of the tree, which represent the foundations of health, to understand the true “root” causes of dysfunction. – See more at: https://www.functionalmedicine.org
