Functional medicine is a field of medicine that employs assessment and intervention to improve physiological, emotional/cognitive, and physical function. In this context, function is the "kind of action or activity proper to a person, thing, or institution."(1) Functional medicine is science-based health care that demands a systematic, patient-centered approach to understanding the underlying web of physiological factors and effects that influence health and the progression of disease. It incorporates the functional principles that exist in many conventional and alternative practices but focuses, as a special core competence, on the principles of molecular medicine and modern nutritional biochemistry with an emphasis on clinical application. 1. The Random House Dictionary of the English Language. New York: Random House, Inc; 1969.

Traditional Chinese medicine: The current name for an ancient system of health care from China. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is based on a concept of balanced qi (pronounced "chee"), or vital energy, that is believed to flow throughout the body. Qi is proposed to regulate a person's spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance and to be influenced by the opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy). Disease is proposed to result from the flow of qi being disrupted and yin and yang becoming imbalanced. Among the components of TCM are herbal and nutritional therapy, restorative physical exercises, meditation, acupuncture, and remedial massage.

Health as a Positive Vitality—Not Merely the Absence of DiseaseToday medicine is at a crossroads. Although medicine has successfully contributed to the evolution of the science of disease diagnosis and treatment during the past four decades, it has not been as successful in promoting healthy aging. A majority of the aging baby boomer population expects that they will never retire and will continue to engage in multiple activities, travel the world, be physically active, meet exciting new challenges, and be available as catalysts for social change as they grow into their 70s and 80s.

This is not a health as the absence of disease model, but rather health as a positive, achievable vitality model.Fries (Stanford University Medical School researcher in the processes of aging) explains that much of the loss of function associated with disease among older individuals is a consequence of the progressive loss of "organ reserve." When we are young, there is a reserve of organ function beyond that which is necessary for the baseline requirements of most organ systems.

As we age, however, we lose organ reserve; stresses that we could have once accommodated now exceed our resilience, which results in health crises. Fries emphasizes that organ reserve is related to biological age. As we lose organ reserve, our biological age increases, making us more susceptible to disease. We can modify how quickly we lose organ reserve and undergo biological aging through changes in lifestyle, environment, and nutrition. It is now recognized that 75 percent of our health and life expectancy after age 40 is modifiable on the basis of such choices.
