Berkson and Lipski discuss the differences between regular medicine and functional medicine. The example is migraine. Regular medicine treats all migraines the same, and offers similar meds. In contrast, functional nutritional experts start from the premise that there are diverse causes of migraines. So each patient needs to be explored for his or her individual root cause of his or her suffering. But the starting point is food.
