Foundations of P4 Medicine
Predictive - Be able to assess various biomarkers, genetics, and Big Data to identify risks before they show any signs.
Preventive - Implement strategies with nutrition, vitamins, botanicals, sleep hygiene, exercise, and lifestyle medicine (environmental toxins) to provide the body with the right microenvironment necessary to avoid illness.
Personalized - Tailored to the individual not to the masses (n of 1)
Participatory - Engagement and embracement of the process to optimal health. It is not just thrown on the patient but instead is a collaborative process.
Good medicine is evidence-led, with a focus on the individual not the masses. It is based on the philosophy that the body inherently possesses an ability to self heal, if provided the right environment. I assess the patient, their environment, their labs and every part of their health to sculpt their own health story. Good medicine is the combination of science (evidence) and art (clinical experience) to create actionable plans that lead to outcomes.
