A functional medical practitioner who could visit an existing clinic on a weekly or monthly basis. That is, a medical practitioner who works with the patient to understand underlying causes of disease, such as epigenetic factors and nutritional deficiencies or excess. There are many in our community who have health conditions that our regular GPs can't help with. For anyone in our community, seeing a functional medical practitioner means travel to another city, and paying full fee. It's difficult to travel that far for those who are not well and who may be low income due to illness.
