A wider concept than Functional Medicine, Integral Medicine™ encapsulates the fact that we are physical, chemical, psychological and spiritual beings and that mental and physical health depends on each of these realms being in harmony.

This one-day training will give you a deeper understanding of the ‘chemical’ part of Integral Medicine and the seven fundamental biochemical processes that, if out of balance, lead to disease. It presents a  systems- based model developed from data from over 100,000 people which is similar to but simpler than the Functional Medicine model and helps practitioners to assess a client’s  health issues and resilience quickly and restore health.
