What is Functional Medicine?


Functional medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that aims to identify the root causes of illness rather than just treating the symptoms.

It focuses on enhancing physical and mental health by creating personalized treatment plans that include lifestyle changes, targeted interventions, exercise & nutrition strategies for optimum wellness and vitality.

At Lifescan, Dr Derek Koh uses integrated approaches to enhance health and wellness through nutrition, lifestyle improvements, supplements, and targeted interventions. During the initial visit, patients can expect a thorough consultation with Dr Derek Koh to better understand their current health conditions and priorities.
