Bioconscious Functional Medicine
Using science and systems biology to find and treat underlying causes and
chart a personal course for lifestyle choices
Managing one’s physical and mental health to feel comfortable, safe, and act at ease in today’s environment is a complex matter. If you are concerned about high-functioning longevity there are decisions about lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, coping with stress, sleep, and alcohol that call for personalization. Managing chronic or recurrent health problems requires understanding complex causes.
Our genetic potential engages the environment through a web of mutually interacting systems. For chronic conditions, without sound management that goes beyond a diagnosis and superficial treatment, the underlying condition and nonresolving inflammation naturally progress. More than a ‘try this, try that’ approach is needed. It requires a practitioner conversant with all relevant systems who can investigate the causes, ‘connect the dots’, and see the whole picture.

Probiotics may promote immune disease in a predisposed host.
Autoimmune conditions are on the rise. They can be triggered by infection. We are very likely too see an even steeper increase in autoimmune symptoms in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
