Stress - Health - Figure



To Live is
To Adapt

From fertility to birth, from birth to adulthood, the synergistic concept of predictive, preventive and functional medicine enables us to support you at every stage of your life, to help you age better and, above all, to prevent illnesses linked to our current lifestyle. 

Adapting today generates chronic stress, which can be managed more easily with medical and nutritional support. 

Life begins by adapting to the inhalation of oxygen (the baby’s 1st cry of life) and the exhalation (rejection) of carbon dioxide. At the same time, this respiration generates energy or adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and water molecules (H2O). 

I welcome you to discuss : 

  • Your past (personal and family history and implications for current health), 
  • Your present (your current complaints), 
  • Your future apartment (a personalized prescription). 
Patients who use predictive, preventive and functional medicine are “Actors in their own health”. They are making a conscious investment in their health, an investment for the future, and ensuring that they can stay healthy for as long as possible to live better.  In curative medicine, the patient is dependent on the doctor & medical system. There is no prevention in place, just the treatment of disease.

PREDICTIVE Medicine

Primary objective

Predictive medicine is an approach to medicine that uses genetic, environmental and lifestyle information to predict a person’s risk of developing certain diseases. By making it possible to establish the equivalent of a family tree of family illnesses (grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, sometimes cousins), we can define a family (transgenerational) inheritance, the illnesses that appear from generation to generation. This makes it possible to prevent possible illnesses at a very early stage (during pregnancy or infancy).  Because understanding your family’s spectrum of illness can help you manage your health and age well. 

Affected persons

People at higher risk of developing a disease & who want to age well while maintaining good health.

Approach

Epigenetic testing and other biological data ; 

Benefits

Can enable early and more targeted intervention;

Limitations

Can cause anxiety and high costs for people who have decided to take control of their health.

FUNCTIONAL Medicine

Primary Objective

Functional medicine is an approach to medicine that focuses on the whole body and mind, rather than on isolated symptoms. It aims to understand the root cause of symptoms by examining the relationships between different body systems, such as the digestive, hormonal and immune systems, and by identifying environmental and lifestyle factors that may contribute to illness.  If symptoms are present, the disease is not yet there, but the tools are available to assess and treat the underlying causes (linked to our modern lifestyle). This medicine uses advanced tests to assess biochemical imbalances and nutritional deficiencies, as well as natural therapies such as dietary supplements, herbs and dietary changes. 

Affected Persons

People with undiagnosed symptoms that cause them to feel unwell; people who are suffering and need to regain their balance in order to feel better and reduce (or slow down) the risk of developing illness. 

Approach

In-depth analysis (whether already begun in preventive medicine or not) to enable us to treat the symptoms of malaise that arise. 

Benefits

Can improve overall health and prevent chronic disease. 

Limitations

May require costly and complex tests 

CURATIVE Medicine

Primary Objective

Curative medicine is the traditional form of medicine that aims to treat illnesses and symptoms after they have occurred. It uses medical treatments such as drugs, surgery and physical therapies to cure illness and relieve symptoms. 

Affected Persons

People diagnosed with a disease ; 

Approach

Medication, surgery and other medical treatments to reduce the consequences of the disease; 

Benefits

Can relieve symptoms and improve living conditions (cure in some cases); 

Limitations

May not be effective for certain diseases (taken too late) and less costly, as covered by the medical system in place (specific to each country).  In curative medicine, the patient is dependent on the doctor and the medical system. There is no prevention, just the treatment of disease.
