Have you ever heard of the term “Functional Health” and thought, isn’t that kind of...rhetorical? Well yes, and no. Functional Health essentially describes your physical mechanical well-being, taking into account your muscles, bones, digestive system, nerves and more. But the term emphasizes on optimising the ability and functions of your body, in order to prevent any illnesses and improve your capacity to perform daily routines.
Are you in good “functional” health?
Functional Health is still fairly new to the medical field; illnesses can vary from diseases like arthritis, muscle strains, tendonitis to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and more. Basically, anything that affects your ability to “function” compromises your Functional Health. The most common causes for deteriorating functional health are the busy, hectic lifestyles we lead - which tend to result in poor nutrition, a lack of physical activity and the general neglect of our bodies.
How can we improve functional health?
Refocusing your eating habits and diet is an important aspect of regulating your functional health. For the longest time, food has been used as a natural medicine to help restore balance, replenish nutrient deficiencies, heal gut and cognitive health. Incorporating specific nutrients into our daily meals can relieve physical ailments and help keep our bodies in tip top condition!
