Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.
Dr Kam integrates functional medicine, allopathic medicine, traditional chinese medicine and psychological medicine to bring about lasting healing.
Dr Kam's integrative approach:
History and clinical examination to elicit root cause of illness. This may be nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, or environmental toxins that can result in cellular dysfunction, illness or disease.
Targeted testing to analyse your current functional status and biochemistry
Your personalised treatment protocol using dietary interventions, herbs and supplements to correct underlying causes as well as provide symptomatic relief.
This may involve removal of certain foods or toxins, and formulation of bespoke nutrients where diet and lifestyle alone cannot rectify physiological imbalances.
As an experienced family physician, she will safely combine the use of prescription medication with your therapies if clinically indicated.
