Gerry J. Poon, a graduate of University of British Columbia Pharmaceutical Sciences 30 years ago, has been working as a registered pharmacist in the community ever since. He believes that first and foremost medicine should do no harm. In his search he found functional medicine – a new science based model of whole systems medicine, a practical road map to address chronic disease in the twenty-first century, and to apply the advances in personalized medicine, genomics, proteomics, and systems biology in treating and reversing disease. He became certified with the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine in 2013 and holds an advanced fellowship with American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. He has practiced nutrition and homeopathy for over 20 years. He uses an integrative approach to treat illness and promote wellness by focusing on the bio-chemical unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore balance. He firmly believes that the “ingredients” needed to make a healthy human includes real, whole, fresh foods, nutrients (vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals), light, water, air, sleep, movement, rhythm, love, connection, meaning, and purpose.
