Dr Georges Mouton
Doctor Georges Mouton is internationally renowned as a leading expert in Functional Medicine. He holds consultations at White Room where he uses a sophisticated approach to both treat his patients’ complaints and prevent chronic degenerative diseases or future ailments. He offers dietary and nutritional counselling and combines this with the administration of appropriate vitamins and minerals. Dr Mouton is registered with the General Medical Council in the UK and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
A pioneer of Functional Medicine who lectures on a diverse range of medical subjects such as intestinal health, fatty acids, liver detoxification and endocrine imbalances to healthcare professionals, he is also the author of “Les méthodes du Docteur Mouton” (The Methods of Doctor Mouton), published in 2002. In this book he shares 20 years of experience in training and treating amateur and professional sports people. His second book, “Ecosystème intestinal & santé optimale” (Intestinal ecosystem and optimal health) was first published in 2004 and re-printed in 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2013. In this rigorously referenced work, Dr Mouton offers a comprehensive scientific exploration of the interconnected relationships between intestinal function/dysfunction and general health, which represents a classic pillar of Functional Medicine. His third book, published in September 2014, titled “An Introduction to Functional Medicine”, is based on Doctor Mouton’s blogs.

FUNCTIONAL MEDECINE – WHAT IS IT
Most physicians and doctors spend the majority of their time diagnosing and treating the outward appearance of disease and prescribing a drug which provides symptomatic relief without identifying the underlying cause of the illness. This is akin to continually putting out fires without looking for the arsonist who is setting the fires.
Symptoms are signals
Just like the red warning light in your car that flashes when there is a problem with your engine, a physical symptom is a signal telling you that an underlying health problem needs to be corrected. Unfortunately, ignoring these chronic symptoms eventually leads to a serious illness.
Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what are sometimes considered “alternative” medicine, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of drugs and/or botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programmes or stress-management techniques.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE – HOW IT CAN HELP?
Through functional diagnostic medicine, physicians are able to help their patients restore normal body function, not only relieving symptoms but halting and reversing the progression towards life-threatening diseases such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes, auto-immune diseases, heart diseases, osteoporosis and many other chronic degenerative illnesses.
Unlike well-meaning traditional and alternative physicians who tend to focus on what drug or herb to use to treat a symptom, doctors who practise functional diagnostic medicine give serious thought to identifying the physiological issues that has led to the patient’s failed health.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE – BIOLOGICAL INDIVIDUALITY
No two people are alike. Look around you and you will see a variety of sizes, shapes, personalities and levels of health. These represent the outward manifestations of internal chemical differences.
In other words, the physical, mental and emotional qualities expressed by people are a reflection of their individual body chemistries; and different body chemistries mean different treatment requirements to maintain metabolic and physiological balance. This in turn will enable individuals to attain their true health potential.
